North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will not participate in the 70'th anniversary of the end of WWII in Moscow in May, as previously planned, according to Russian authorities.
- He has decided to remain in Pyongyang, said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, to reporters.
- This decision is related to North Korea's internal affairs, the spokesman continued.
If Kim Jong-un had come to Moscow as expected, it would be his first overseas visit since he came to power in 2011.
North Korea support Russia in the Ukraine conflict, and joint cooperation projects of gas and infrastructure were planned to be discussed directly between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un.
