Russia has voted at the United Nations in favour of international sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear programme while urging the West to show restraint and calling for talks over the issue.
Mr Putin said dialogue with North Korea was warranted and said Kim now wanted to calm the situation.
He said: “He is already a shrewd and mature politician.”
North Korea and South Korea held talks on Tuesday after a prolonged period of tension on the Korean peninsula over Kim’s missile and nuclear programmes.
