Kim Jong Un backs 'comrade' Vladimir Putin's'sacred' conflict with the 'evil' West

 MOSCOW/SEOUL: Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea, and Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, met for a rare summit on Wednesday. During the meeting, they talked about military matters, the war in Ukraine, and whether or not Russia could help the Communist state's secret satellite program. Putin showed Kim around Russia's most developed space rocket send off site in Russia's Far East after Kim showed up via train from North Korea. Kim posed various nitty gritty inquiries about rockets as Putin showed him around the Vostochny Cosmodrome.

After the tour, Putin, 70, and Kim, 39, had lavish lunches of Russian "pelmeni" dumplings made with Kamchatka crab and sturgeon with mushrooms and potatoes. After that, they talked one-on-one for several hours with their ministers. Kim raised a toast with a glass of Russian wine to Putin's wellbeing, to the triumph of "extraordinary Russia" and to Korean-Russian fellowship, anticipating triumph for Russia in its "holy battle" with the West in the Ukraine war. " The Russian armed force and individuals will positively win an extraordinary triumph in the hallowed battle for the discipline of an incredible malicious that claims authority and feeds an expansionist deception," he said.

Officials from the United States and South Korea have expressed concern that Kim would supply Russia with weapons and ammunition, given that Russia has used a lot of those items during the more than 18 months of war in Ukraine. Moscow and Pyongyang have denied such expectations. Putin gave a few clues that tactical participation was examined yet unveiled not many subtleties. For the first time since it began punishing Pyongyang in 2006, Russia and China have opposed new sanctions against North Korea. This has prevented a push led by the United States and publicly divided the UN Security Council. Gotten some information about military ties, Putin said Russia agreed with worldwide guidelines yet that there were chances to investigate

The decision to meet at Vostochny Cosmodrome - an image of Russia's desires as a space power - was eminent, as North Korea two times neglected to send off observation satellites in the beyond four months. When asked by the Russian media whether Moscow would assist Kim in building satellites, Putin responded, We came here because of that." The meeting provided Russia with an opportunity to criticize the United States, but it was unclear just how far Putin would go to fulfill any North Korean technology wish lists. According to the BBC, Kim is also thought to have asked for food aid in return.

Putin said Kim presently wanted to visit military and regular citizen flight processing plants in the city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur and examine the Russia's Pacific armada in Vladivostok. Putin and Kim called one another "friends" and Putin reminded Kim that it was the Soviet Association which supported North Korea - and was first to remember it a little more than 75 years to the day since it was laid out.
