One of the sources familiar with the situation with preparations for the summit noted that there is no need to link the two leaders’ meeting to the EEF, especially now that the processes related to the settlement on the Korean Peninsula are developing so rapidly.

"It cannot be ruled out that the meeting can be held earlier, the more so since such a public platform cannot be the most suitable one for the North Korean leader," he said.

According to the news agency, the agreement was reached at a meeting between Kim Jong-un and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov held in Pyongyang on May 31.
