MOSCOW (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said on Wednesday he hoped to have concrete discussions about efforts to end the nuclear standoff in the Korean peninsula when he meets Russian President Vladimir Putin for a summit this week.

“I hope the talks will be successful and useful,” he said in comments broadcast by Russia’s state-owned Rossiya 24 television station. “I hope that we can discuss concrete questions about peace negotiations on the Korean peninsula, and our bilateral relations,” he said, speaking through an interpreter.
