“North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has confirmed his attendance at Russia's celebrations in May marking the Soviet victory over Germany in World War II,” South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday, quoting a Kremlin spokesman.
After long-time relations between North Korea and China turned sour in 2013 – when Pyongyang conducted its third nuclear test despite threat of sanctions – Kim Jong Un is looking forward to boost ties with Moscow.
Although it'll be Kim’s first visit to Russia, we are sure he’ll be quite comfortable hanging out with President Vladimir Putin because both the leaders – apart from Western economic sanctions – have so much in common, it’s just unbelievable. Have a look:
Popular with the ladies
Ladies just can’t resist posing with Putin and Kim.
While Putin enjoys playing the piano, Kim likes guitars.
Both of them adore animals. (FYI: Putin is also a wildlife conservationist.)
Of course, they are into weapons.
Like horse riding
Guess they’ll want to go out riding together.
And ski lifts
Clearly, they enjoy their food.
Into sports and recreational activities
But also like to stay fit. Although he has never been photographed playing it himself, Kim’s love for basketball is legendary. Remember his friend, former NBA player Dennis Rodman?
Now you see it too, right?
