2- Now, after this summit, how willing do you think Russia is in regards to providing North Korea with more political and economic support. especially when it comes to UN sanctions?
3- Aside from denuclearization, the two sides also discussed various bilateral economic projects.
Tell us more about them.
4- President Putin said that he's willing to share details with the U.S. about his summit with Kim while there are reports on how U.S. President Donald Trump is looking to strike some major nuclear deals with Russia and China.
