Kim Jong Un arrives in Vladivostok ahead of first meeting with Putin

Vladivostok, Russia (CNN)North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has arrived in the Russian city of Vladivostok ahead of his planned summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Russian state television showed Kim stepping out of his green private train at a railway station in the eastern port city, Wednesday afternoon under a leaden sky. Wearing a black homburg and overcoat, he was greeted at the station by officials and a brass band. Putin was not part of the welcoming committee. Kim and Putin are set to meet for the first time Thursday, but do not plan to sign any agreements or make a joint statement. The young North Korean leader left the capital of Pyongyang on Wednesday at dawn and traveled to Russia by train, as he did for his summit with US President Donald Trump in Hanoi, Vietnam. The journey from the train station in Khasan, near the North Korean border, to Vladivostok took about nine hours. After crossing the Russian border, Kim stopped at the Khasan station where was presented with flowers as well as bread and salt -- a Russian tradition for welcoming guests -- local lawmaker Natalia Karpova told Russian state news agency TASS. Kim said he was «happy to be on Russian soil,» the Russian region of Primorsky reported on its official website. Kim was greeted by officials upon arrival. Timing of talks significant Kim's visit to North Korea's northern neighbor comes amid an impasse in the nuclear negotiations between Pyongyang and Washington. Trump and Kim's Hanoi meeting ended early without an agreement, with the two sides seemingly far apart on how to trade sanctions relief for meaningful steps toward denuclearization. A State Department spokesperson said the United States is aware of the reports that Kim has left for Russia. «The United States and the international community is committed to the same goal -- the final, fully verified denuclearization of North Korea. It is Chairman Kim's commitment to denuclearization upon which the world is focused.» In this photo provided by the North Korean government, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inspects an honor guard at an undisclosed train station in North Korea on Wednesday before leaving for Russia. Though the White House expressed optimism that things were left on good terms after Hanoi, North Korean officials have been less sanguine in public. Diplomats from Pyongyang havespeculated about suspending talks with the United States and called for Trump to replace US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with someone «who is more careful and mature in communicating with us.» Kim himself said there could be repercussions if talks continue to stall during a meeting of North Korea's rubber-stamp parliament earlier this month. He said the country needed to «deal a telling blow to the hostile forces who go with bloodshot eyes miscalculating that sanctions can bring (North Korea) to its knees,» according to state media reports. Joining Kim on the trip is the recently promoted Choe Son Hui, one of Pyongyang's more experienced diplomats who is heavily involved in talks with the United States. NK News, a prominent website specializing in North Korean news, reported that Choe's promotion makes her the highest-ranking female diplomat in the country's history. Analysts have speculated that Kim's meeting with Putin could be a way for the young North Korean leader to assess his diplomatic options outside talks with the United States. North Korea may hope for Russian support in pressuring Washington over sanctions relief, which continues to be a major sticking issue in talks between the two sides. The Trump administration has said sanctions will only be lifted after North Korea gives up its nuclear weapons program. Pyongyang also may be seeking to lessen its economic reliance on Beijing, North Korea's only significant trading partner. Former North Korean leader Kim Il Sung was notorious for playing China and the Soviet Union off each other in order to maximize foreign investment. CNN's Jennifer Hansler and Chandler Thornton contributed to this report.

The meeting participants expressed interest in establishing mutually beneficial business contacts, the report said. The Concept of Development of Digital Economy for 2019-2025 is being implemented in Turkmenistan. According to the aforementioned concept, an «e-government» system is planned to be developed in Turkmenistan, which is expected to be organized in a fuel and energy complex, chemical industry, processing industry, construction, transport, telecommunications, medicine, textile industry and the agricultural sector. The new system is expected to allow for a quick and efficient supervision of the seasonal work, as well as provide the opportunity for continuous monitoring and operational decision-making at the level of the sectoral ministry, as well as the administration and agribusinesses. Local economists think that the implementation of e-government will help improve the efficiency of enterprise management, provide an opportunity for operational control at all stages of business process management, reducing document passage cycles and the execution time of basic functions, and will ensure rapid search for information necessary for making management decisions.

Kyrgyzstan has lowest salary, but cheapest food products among EAEU countries

Bishkek, Apr. 22, 2019. /Kabar/. The National Statistics Committee of the Kyrgyz Republic conducted a comparative analysis of prices of food products in the capitals of the countries participating in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), based on average market prices in each of the cities. Calculations showed that the maximum average consumer prices for basic foodstuffs in March 2019 are observed in the city of Moscow. Thus, the cost of a grocery basket, which included one kilogram of beef, lamb, butter, potatoes and flour, as well as a dozen eggs and a loaf of bread in the Russian capital amounted to $ 30.41. In Bishkek, this list of products averages $ 16.4, in Nur-Sultan - $ 18.69, in Minsk, excluding lamb - $ 15.7. According to data of the ministry, in January-February of the current year in Kyrgyzstan, the average monthly nominal wage per employee (excluding small enterprises) was 15,226 soms, and increased by 4.6% compared to the same period last year. Based on the official exchange rate set by the National Bank of the Kyrgyz Republic, this amounted to $ 218.1. A brief analysis of the average wage in the CIS countries shows that the level of wages in US dollars in the Kyrgyz Republic is lower than in other countries. For example, 3 times less than in Russia, 2 times less than in Kazakhstan and Belarus, 1.5 times less than in Armenia. Thus, Kyrgyzstan takes the last place in terms of average wages among the EAEU countries.
