Russia says it isn't expecting visit by N. Korea's Kim

MOSCOW - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has no plans to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-il during a trip to the Russian Far Eastern city of Vladivostok, the Kremlin said on Wednesday.
"No such meeting is included in the program for Dmitry Medvedev's trip to Vladivostok," Kremlin spokeswoman Natalya Timakova said by telephone.
Earlier this week, a local official in Vladivostok, 130 k.m. from the North Korean border, said preparations were being made for a visit by Kim.
