North Korea summit: Putin says Kim 'needs guarantees'
Russian President Vladimir Putin has said North Korean leader Kim Jong-un needs international security guarantees if he is to end his nuclear programme, BBC reports.
Such guarantees would need to be offered within a multinational framework, he added, following talks near Vladivostok in Russia's far east.
Mr Kim praised the summit as a "very meaningful one-on-one exchange".
Mr Putin said North Korea's leader was "fairly open" and had "talked freely on all issues that were on the agenda".
