The superpowers are set to thrash out a deal on how to stem the threat of warmongering Kim Jong-un and his secretive regime amid fears of World War 3 being sparked.
The news comes after President Donald Trump on Tuesday called on Russia and China to do more to defeat the crackpot dictator during a speech in South Korea.
Russia’s deputy foreign minister Sergei Rybakov said North Korea would be one of the key themes during the meeting between the pair, which will take place when the US leader is on his five-nation Asia tour.
President Donald Trump is due to visit Vietnam on November 9 and 10 during his 10-day trip.
He has also travelled to Beijing today for talks with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, with the North Korea crisis and high-profile trade discussions set to be top of the agenda.
Speaking during the second day of his 12-day Asia tour, the Republican firebrand called on the international community to support his demands to end the ongoing threat from North Korea.
He told reporters in Seoul: “We are calling on all responsible nations, including Russia and China, to demand an end to the North Korea nuclear threat for peace.
«It is time to act with urgency and great determination. North Korea is a worldwide threat that requires worldwide action.”
Mr Trump’s demands for China and Russia to work with the US come despite the Kremlin admitting Washington and Moscow do not co-operate on the deepening North Korea tensions.
The world is on the brink of World War 3 as North Korea continues to flex its military muscle with a stream of nuclear tests in direct threat to the US.
The US leader has previously said dialogue with President Vladimir Putin is vital to solving global issues, such as the Syrian War and threats by North Korea.
The two superpowers met for the first time during the G20 Summit earlier this year, where the pair are said to have shared «positive chemistry».
The meeting, scheduled for 35 minutes, took more than 2 hours and focused heavily on a just-announced cease fire deal for south west Syria and the growing threat from the North.
Relations between Moscow and Washington have soured further since, however.
President Trump in August grudgingly signed off on new sanctions against Russia, a move Moscow said ended hopes for better ties.
Mr Putin, dismayed by the sanctions, ordered Washington to more than halve its embassy and consular staff in Russia.
