Kim Jong Un, the leader of North Korea, is set to meet Vladimir Putin in Russia this month. This was announced only several hours after North Korea demanded US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo be removed from talks over its banned nuclear program.
Russia said Putin was the one to invite Kim Jong Un, which would be a first for both countries. Putin has always wanted to meet with the regime leader.
The North Koreans said Pompeo was, “reckless”, and that they worried he would ruin the talks if he were not replaced.
