The fact that the leaders of Russia and North Korea, who are clashing with the West, are meeting each other is attracting the attention of the world.
America and Japan are wary that
weapons are the main agenda in the talks with Kim Putin who arrived in Russia
Seoul: The fact that the leaders of Russia and North Korea, who are clashing with the West, are meeting each other is attracting the attention of the world. The sanctions imposed by the United States and the United Nations on both countries seem to have brought them closer together. US Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrived in Russia on his special train on Tuesday after traveling for about 20 hours. This train is only 50 km per hour. Travels at speed. It was heavily armored and could not go any faster. It is known that Kim will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss arms sales. It has become inevitable to sell these to US Korea and to buy them to Russia. Russia is hoping for some weapons stockpiles that have been depleted by months of war on Ukraine. A few lakhs of Shataghni shells and missiles produced with Russian models in the past are in a state of obsolescence at US Korea.
Taking a closer look: The White House
Countries like America and Japan were alerted on the meeting between the two leaders. A spokesman for the White House National Security Council urged North Korea to adhere to its promise not to sell arms to Russia. The Ministry of External Affairs said that the meeting is being thoroughly investigated. It has made it clear that there is no hesitation in imposing more sanctions if the sale of arms takes place. It seems that Kim will discuss issues like UN sanctions and years of diplomatic isolation in the latest meeting. The location of the meeting of the leaders is still kept secret. Initial reports were that they would meet in Vladivostok, near the border. It turned out that the meeting would not take place in that city as Kim’s train crossed the Razdolnaya river and headed north instead. A South Korean news agency showed a photo of a special train stopping in Usaryysk, which has a large Korean population. Along with Kim, ruling party leaders and military officers are on a special train.
