Putin hosts Kim for talks on N. Korean nuclear standoff   

VLADIVOSTOK, Russia (AP) -- Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met on April 25, saying they had good talks about their joint efforts to resolve a standoff over Pyongyang's nuclear program, but no agreement was announced.

Kim's first trip to Russia comes about two months after his second summit with U.S. President Donald Trump failed because of disputes over U.S.-led sanctions on the North.

During the summit, Kim told Putin that the situation on the Korean Peninsula has reached a "critical point," according to North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency. It also said Putin accepted Kim's invitation to visit North Korea.

Putin said Kim urged him to explain the nuances of North Korea's position to Trump. He said they also discussed sanctions that will force more than 10,000 North Korean laborers in Russia to leave. Putin is willing to share details with the U.S. about the summit, potentially raising Russia's influence in the stalemated issue of North Korean denuclearization.
