Kim Jong-un to visit Moscow

Kim Jong-un to visit Moscow
The North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has agreed to participate in the 70 anniversary of the end of WWII in Russia on May 9, reports South Korean media.

If Kim actually goes, it will be his first foreign visit since he came to power when his father died in 2011.

- Some 20 heads of state have confirmed their participation, and the North Korean leader is among them, a spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin said to the news agency Yonhap on Wednesday.

Thus, it looks like Kims first trip abroad as head of state does not go to China, the country's most important ally. Moscow and Pyongyang have recently worked to strengthen ties.

North Korea supports Russia in Ukraine conflict, and joint cooperation projects of gas and infrastructure is on the table.

Meanwhile, North Korea's relations with China has cooled off since Kim took over and two years later conducted a third nuclear test despite international warnings and UN sanctions.

In the UN Security Council, both China and Russia have voted for sanctions, but Beijing has been tougher in the rhetoric when it comes to the neighboring country's nuclear ambitions.

The Chinese President Xi Jinping has also met South Korean President Park Geun-hye six times since they both took over in 2012. Xi has not yet met Kim.
