Moscow hopes that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will visit the country next year, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s advisor said on Wednesday.

“I hope this visit will be possible next year,” Kremlin foreign policy advisor Yuri Ushakov said, Russian news agencies reported.

He did not confirm recent reports by South Korean media that Kim could visit Russia this month.

Last month, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said he believed the youthful North leader could visit Russia “soon.”

Moscow has repeatedly invited Kim to visit Russia but he has yet to respond to the offer to meet Putin.

The rapid diplomatic thaw on the Korean Peninsula since the Winter Olympics has seen Kim meet with his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in twice, as well as Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Donald Trump.

In June, Trump and Kim signed a vaguely-worded agreement on denuclearisation but little progress has been made since then.
