Kim Jong Un asked Putin for help dealing with Trump

"They carelessly trample on the norms and principles of worldwide law, resort to blackmail, sanctions and pressure, and try to force their values and dubious ideals on entire countries and populations", said Mr Putin, who is heading to China after the talks for another summit.

Putin added that Russian Federation and the U.S. share interest in denuclearization of Korean Peninsula.

Kremlin-controlled media described in great detail how Kim's armoured train arrived in the Pacific port of Vladivostok on Wednesday, how Russian officials welcomed him with traditional round bread and salt, what theatres, museums and landmarks the moonfaced autocrat will visit during his three-day visit. The meeting took place in Vladivostok, Russia.

It was the first summit between the leaders of North Korea and Russian Federation since Kim Jong Il - the current leader's father - met with Dmitry Medvedev eight years ago. Although Moscow has never supported a nuclear-armed North Korea, it may share a view with Pyongyang that a weakened USA influence in the region would benefit both.

Kim's second summit with Trump in February ended without any agreements, and his trip to Russian Federation reflects his desire to put more pressure on Washington and show some independence from Beijing as well.

Mr Putin told Mr Kim that Russian Federation supports his efforts to normalise North Korea's relations with the United States.

Kim said the two leaders had a "very meaningful one-on-one exchange of opinions on issues of mutual interest and current issues", reported BBC.

Since Kim's latest talks with Trump, in Hanoi, ended without any sign of progress, North Korea has expressed its open anger with what it calls an excessively hard-line position by Trump's top advisers in the deadlocked negotiations.

Richardson, who traveled to North Korea several times as a special US envoy, said Trump should let others in his administration conduct talks with the North Korean leader's officials to bring the two sides closer together on denuclearization and the sanctions before another possible meeting between Trump and Kim.

Vladimir Putin views his meeting with North Korea leader Kim Jong-un as a "photo opportunity" which could help "raise his domestic popularity", claimed an analyst.

Noting that Mr Kim had recently embarked on several diplomatic initiatives, such as his ongoing summit meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Mr Moon said these were welcome moves, and he would push for further diplomacy and dialogue, once the North Korean leader was ready for this.

The North's delegation includes two vice chairmen of the North's ruling Workers' Party's Central Committee - Kim Phyong Hae and O Su Yong - and Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho and First Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui.

"I think there needs to be a multilateral security regime for the North", he said.

It also adds a chapter to the storied but often-strained friendship between Pyongyang and Moscow, which was forged in war and weathered by the Soviet collapse and tensions surrounding the North's pursuit of nuclear weapons.

However February's talks in Hanoi broke down after the two world superpowers were unable to reach an agreement to lift sanctions in exchange for North Korea abandoning its nuclear and missile programs.

Vladivostok, a city of more than half a million on the Sea of Japan, faced gridlock on its roads as traffic was blocked in the city center due to Kim's visit.

The authorities have temporarily closed the waters around Russky Island to all maritime traffic.

Kim was expected to return to Pyongyang on Friday.
