In fact, gifts were exchanged.
On Thursday, September 14, at a briefing by the Kremlin’s official representative to Russian and foreign journalists, the following question was asked…
– In 2019, during the visit of the Korean leader to Russia (he and the head of the Russian Federation also met in Primorye), Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un gave each other gifts. Did this happen today?
“There was indeed an exchange of gifts,” Peskov confirmed. – We prefer never to “publicize” this, but, indeed, President Putin gave the Korean leader a glove from a space suit that had been in space several times.
He gave us a carbine of our Russian national production of the highest quality.
In turn, Putin also received a gift – also a carbine made by North Korean artisans – from Kim Jong-un.
There were other gifts too.
BY THE WAY.
When President Putin was visiting Pyongyang in July 2000, he and Kim Jong-in (then leader of the DPRK) also exchanged memories, but this was not discussed in detail.
