VLADIVOSTOK - Russian authorities are preparing for a possible visit by North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il, a local official in Russia's Far East said on condition of anonymity on Monday.

"We are making preparations," said the local official, who asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the situation.

The official declined to give any details about the trip other than that Kim was expected to travel to Russia's Far East, which borders North Korea, in an armored train.

When asked if Kim was due to visit, the governor of Russia's Far Eastern region of Primorye, Sergei Darkin, told reporters in Moscow: "I cannot comment on what presidents of other countries plan to do. You will soon find out."
