Kim Jong Un Visits Russia for Talks on North Korea-Russia Relations Following 75th Anniversary Celebrations

North Korea celebrated the 75th anniversary of its founding last week, with Kim Jong Un attending a photo session and dedicating floral baskets to past leaders. On Sunday, a North Korean train, presumably carrying Kim, departed for Russia, and a meeting between Kim and Russian President Vladimir Putin is expected to take place soon. The purpose of the trip is unknown, but it is likely to be related to North Korea's diplomatic relations with Russia and could have implications for the region as a whole.
