Russia: N. Korea leader confirms visit

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has confirmed his attendance at Russia’s celebrations in May marking the Soviet victory over Germany in World War Two, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said on Wednesday quoting a Kremlin spokesman. The trip, if it takes place, would be Kim’s first foreign visit since taking power in the reclusive state in 2011, succeeding his father Kim Jong Il who died suddenly, and is likely to come before he visits China, the North’s main ally. “About 20 state leaders have confirmed their attendance, and the North Korean leader is among them,” Yonhap quoted the office of Kremlin spokesman as saying in response to its written question to President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
