    Russian President Vladimir Putin is holding a press conference in Vladivostok following his first-ever meeting with North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un.

    Putin and Kim met on Thursday for the first time at the Far Eastern Federal University on Russky island in Vladivostok. This is not only their first summit and Kim's first visit to Russia since he came to power in 2011, but also the North Korean leader's first overseas trip since his reelection as the chairman of the State Affairs Commission earlier in April.
