South Korean President Moon Jae-in will make a state visit to Russia from June 21 to 23 to hold a summit with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, the presidential Blue House of South Korea said Friday.

The Moon-Putin summit will come after the historic summit between Kim Jong Un, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), and U.S. President Donald Trump scheduled for June 12 in Singapore.

Kim Eui-kyeom, Moon's spokesman, told a press briefing that the leaders of South Korea and Russia will talk about Korean Peninsula denuclearization and the peace settlement.

Moon and Putin, the spokesman said, will also discuss ways to increase bilateral cooperation and strengthen cooperation for co-prosperity and development in the Eurasian continent beyond Northeast Asia.

After the April 27 summit at the inter-Korean border village of Panmunjom, the leaders of the DPRK and South Korea agreed to link roads and railways along the western and eastern corridors of the divided peninsula.

If connected, the roads and railways would be extended to China and Russia.
