Russian President Vladimir Putin could meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the Russian Far Eastern city of Vladivostok in September, RIA news agency reported on Monday, citing diplomatic sources.
Other possible locations and dates are also being discussed, RIA said.
Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov proposed the location and time during a meeting last week in Pyongyang with Kim, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday in Moscow.
"Whether that suits the North Korean side, time will tell," said Peskov, with definitive details on the proposed meeting still to be confirmed.
If the eastern city of Vladivostok was to be selected as a meeting point, Kim would only require a short train ride across North Korea's common border with Russia to attend the meeting.
The Eastern Economic Forum, which is traditionally used by Russia to attract investors from Pacific nations, is scheduled to take place this year on September 6-7.
