A New Alliance: Russia and North Korea Join Forces Against Aggression

The Wall Street – On Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inked a collaboration agreement in Pyongyang, cementing their strategic cooperation in opposition to Western leaders.

Their inked agreement contained a “mutual help” commitment in the case of “aggression” against either country, according to Russian media. In his opening remarks, Putin hailed Kim for his “unwavering support” for Russia’s war in Ukraine.

The two chiefs of state met for approximately two hours in Pyongyang on Wednesday as part of Putin’s official state visit, his first to the reclusive country in 24 years. The talks are the most recent in a series of meetings about trade and commercial connections between the two countries, both of which are subject to Western sanctions.

In September, Putin and Kim met face-to-face in eastern Russia, followed by rounds of lower-level discussions in Pyongyang and Moscow.

Putin and Kim’s increasingly intimate partnership may endanger the West: ANALYSIS
“As a result of your visit to Russia last year, we made much progress in developing modern interstate relations,” Putin said in his opening address, according to Interfax, a Russian news agency. “A new fundamental document has been drafted to lay a long-term foundation for our relations.”

On Wednesday, North Korean official media said that Kim’s administration hoped the discussions would result in “deepening economic and trade relations” with Russia.

According to the US State Department, North Korea has delivered armaments to Russia, including dozens of ballistic missiles and more than 11,000 ammunition containers, for use in the conflict with Ukraine. U.S. officials said Putin was likely to request additional military assistance while in Pyongyang.

“We’ve seen him become increasingly desperate over the last few months, looking to Iran to rebolster the military that he’s lost in Ukraine and to North Korea to rearm himself” Matthew Miller a state department spokesperson said during a briefing on Tuesday. “And so I’m quite certain that that is what he’s up to.”

According to Interfax, the Russian news agency Putin stated that their new agreement, which was inked before Wednesday’s talks, would be the cornerstone of a long-term friendship between the two nations.

During their two-hour conversation, both leaders tried to portray it as an insult to the US and its Western friends.

The battle is a fight against the imperialist hegemonistic policies of the U.S. and its satellites against the Russian Federation Putin declared as he praised Kim for North Korea’s support of his invasion of Ukraine, according to Interfax.

Putin was greeted with a ceremony on Wednesday in North Korea. He had arrived late on Tuesday and spent the night at a state guest house.
