North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has expressed “full and unconditional support” for Russia in its ongoing conflict with Ukraine. The statement was made during a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Kim Jong Un stated that Pyongyang will always stand with Moscow on the “anti-imperialist” front. This meeting underscores how their interests are aligning in the face of their countries’ separate, intensifying confrontations with the United States.
The North Korean leader’s pledge of support highlights the strengthening ties between North Korea and Russia, as both nations face increasing international pressure and sanctions. The full implications of this alliance remain to be seen.
