Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet Kim Yong Nam, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of North Korea, here on Thursday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

Kim is coming to Moscow to attend the FIFA World Cup opening ceremony, Peskov was quoted as saying by Xinhua news agency on Wednesday. His trip to Russia follows a landmark Singapore summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump on Tuesday.

Trump said his country will provide security guarantees to Pyongyang, while Kim reaffirmed his commitment to a complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

"The results of this meeting have yet to be analyzed in depth, but the very fact that such a meeting was held and a direct dialogue was started can only be welcomed," Peskov said.

The spokesman reiterated Russia's position that there was no alternative to political and diplomatic methods of settling the Korean problem.
