Vladimir Putin's visit to North Korea alarms the West, a "nightmare pact" is being created at the worst possible moment, here are the agreements that have scared the Americans

Vladimir Putin's visit to North Korea alarms the West, a "nightmare

Russia and North Korea are expanding military and economic cooperation: Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived for a two-day visit to North Korea, the first time since he took office in 2000. On Tuesday, the Korean News Agency published Putin's text thanking Pyongyang for supporting Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The rapprochement of the two countries under Western sanctions has caused concern in the West, "CNN" points out. Putin's delegation includes many ministers, among them the new Minister of Defense Andrej Belousov and Denis Manturov, the first deputy prime minister for the defense sector, reports the British "The Guardian". For Putin, it is a rare trip abroad, especially after the start of the war in Ukraine in 2022 and the issuance of an international arrest warrant to deport children from Ukraine to Russia, and for Kim Jong-un it is the first visit a foreign leader since the pandemic.

Links between countries

The US, South Korea and other countries have accused North Korea of ??providing large-scale military aid to Russia in recent months. US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin recently claimed that this munitions aid, along with Iranian drones, helped the Russian military stand up. South Korean Defense Minister Shin Won-sik told Bloomberg that their services have identified at least 10,000 shipping containers suspected of carrying North Korean artillery ammunition and other weapons in Russia. It could be up to 4.8 million grenades. Between August and February, Pyongyang delivered about 6,700 containers to Russia, containing about three million pieces of 152 mm artillery shells or more than 500,000 shells for 122 mm multi-barrel rocket launchers, the South Korean Ministry of Defense announced earlier. South. In return, Russia is believed to be helping Pyongyang develop its satellite program, with military, economic and diplomatic support. Putin and Kim Jong-un met last September in Vladivostok, where they visited a factory for the production of modern fighter jets and the Vostochny Cosmodrome.

"Nightmare Pact"

The White House expressed concern on Monday. "We're not worried about Putin's trip, we're worried about the rapprochement of these two countries because it could affect security on the Korean peninsula," said US National Security Council spokesman John Kirby. Russian news agencies reported that the two leaders would sign a "comprehensive strategic partnership agreement" that would outline future cooperation and deal with "security issues," Putin aide Yuri Ushakov announced at a news conference. He emphasized that the agreement is not directed against other countries, but its aim is to ensure greater stability in Northeast Asia. The new agreement on military and intelligence cooperation is supposed to replace agreements signed by Moscow and Pyongyang in 1961, 2000 and 2001. Analysts say any new agreement to be signed will most likely be related to strengthening defense cooperation.

Alert in the US

North Korea can supply Russia with the aforementioned shells, but also anti-tank missiles and surface-to-air missiles, as well as rifles, rocket launchers, mortars and shells. Arms control experts said fragments of the Hwasong-11A short-range ballistic missile were found after Russian airstrikes in several Ukrainian cities. For the record, Hwasong-11° series missiles have a high degree of accuracy and are difficult to shoot down. The US cannot but be concerned about the intensification of relations between these two countries. "We believe - said State Department spokesman Matthew Miller during a press conference - that deepening cooperation between Russia and North Korea is something that should be of great concern to anyone interested in maintaining peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula".
