North Korea and Russia signed Comprehensive Strategic Partnership Agreement

This Wednesday, the presidents of Russia, Vladimir Putin, and North Korea, Kim Jong-un, signed the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership Agreement to strengthen their geostrategic cooperation in the event of mutual aggression

The presidents of Russia and North Korea, Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un, signed the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership Agreement to strengthen cooperation in geostrategic matters.

The signing of the agreement occurred during Putin’s visit to North Korea this Wednesday, for the first time in 24 years, in a face-to-face meeting of approximately two hours in Pyongyang.

According to Putin’s adviser on international politics, Yuri Ushakov, the recent agreement will replace those signed between Moscow and Pyongyang in 1961, 2000 and 2001. In a statement on Tuesday, the official indicated that the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership Agreement between both countries will consider “all the universal principles of international law, will not have any confrontational character, will not be directed against any country and will be aimed at guaranteeing greater stability in the Northeast Asian region.”

However, other assessments about the rapprochement between both nations suggest that it is a strategic step by Russia to obtain more weapons from Pyongyang for the war with Ukraine.

For his part, Putin has insisted that the agreement will also be applied to create a “commercial and reciprocal payment system that allows exchanges by circumventing the financial circuits linked to the dollar, to which both countries are prohibited from accessing.”
