North Korea Welcomes Putin in Pyongyang with a Red Carpet


On Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Pyongyang, North Korea, for the first time in 24 years and received a warm welcome.

The State TV in North Korea displayed the two leaders as they warmly embraced on a red carpet outside Pyongyang International Airport.

In addition, the report showed the two leaders left in a car, with the streets lined with banners, flags, and posters promoting Putin and the North Korea/Russia relationship.

When the North Korean leader and Putin previously met, they shared the innermost ideas and thoughts that were pent up.

Furthermore, North Korea’s ruling party’s official newspaper reported that Putin praised Kim Jong Un.

Putin commended his leadership while promising to help develop trade and strengthen security across Eurasia.

According to the newspaper, Putin supports the DPRK’s opposition to its “dangerous and aggressive” elements.

Before this trip, which could last two days, Russian officials had given a clue that both countries could sign a “comprehensive strategic partnership.”

Moreover, Putin signed an agreement with North Korea’s leader to cooperate on Nuclear energy, food, energy security, and space exploration.

This alliance stands out as one of Asia’s highest-profile moves by Moscow in years.

Western Countries Closely Monitoring Putin’s Visit

The recent move between North Korea and Moscow sparked concerns among Western officials.

Western Countries are curious and have been closely monitoring this relationship, particularly because Russia and North Korea are sanctioned.

Also, Westerners are keen on knowing the potential outcomes of the tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

NATO Secretary-General Stoltenberg mentioned in a joint press briefing that Putin’s trip confirms Russia’s close alignment with other authoritarian states.

The authoritarian countries include North Korea, Iran, and China.

Jens Stoltenberg said this alongside the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken on Tuesday.

According to U.S. officials, Pyongyang supplied Russia with dozens of ballistic missiles and more than 11,000 containers of munitions.

All of which were for its military action in Ukraine.
