Kremlin: US, N.Korea yet to reply to VD invite

Russia invited a number of world leaders, including United States President Donald Trump and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un, to attend the Victory Day (VD) parade in Moscow in 2020, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Sunday. However, Washington and Pyongyang are yet to respond to their invitations.

On May 9 next year Russia will hold its annual VD parade and mark the 75th anniversary of the end of World War Two. Russia said it also invited leaders from the European Union, and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization as well as the British prime minister and Mongolian President Khaltmaagiin Battulga.

Russia celebrates the end of World War Two on May 9 while the anniversary is marked in Western Europe on May 8, since Nazi Germany capitulated late on May 8, 1945 in Berlin, which was already the following day in Moscow due to different time zones.
