العلاقات بين روسيا وكوريا الشمالية

By Jordi Bou

June 19, 2024 - وقع زعيما كوريا الشمالية وروسيا اتفاقاً يعمق تعاونهما العسكري ليشمل تعهداً بالدفاع المتبادل لمساعدة بعضهما البعض في حالة تعرضهما لهجوم.

The inclusion of a mutual defence clause in their comprehensive strategic partnership, which Kim described as an “alliance”, will add to the west’s alarm over growing economic and military ties between North Korea and Russia.

Pyongyang and Moscow have ramped up diplomatic and economic exchanges in recent months, culminating in Putin’s visit to North Korea for the first time in 24 years.
