North Korean state media released images of Kim alighting his armoured train before he took off for a meeting with President Vladimir Putin in Russia. Putin, already in Russia's far east for an economic forum in Vladivostok, was evasive when asked what the leaders would discuss. 'I have my own agenda there. When I get there, you will know,' he told a conference moderator.

South Korea's foreign ministry said it was monitoring Kim's journey, while the US state department spokesperson, Matthew Miller, said the US was prepared to levy new sanctions against any countries supporting Russia's war. Miller told reporters: 'We have aggressively enforced our sanctions against entities that fund Russia's war effort. And we will continue to enforce those sanctions and will not hesitate to impose new sanctions, if appropriate on North Korea'.
