Putin and Kim’s letter, Russia is shaking old relations?
Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un exchanged letters with each other. Pyongyang confirmed this information on Monday (August 15).
In a letter sent on North Korea’s Independence Day, Putin called for strengthening relations between the two countries. He said both sides will benefit from mutual friendship. In addition, good relations between the two countries will also play a role in protecting the security and stability of the Korean Peninsula.
In response to Putin’s letter, Kim also expressed hope for strong relations between the two countries. He also talked about enhancing economic cooperation and cultural exchanges.
The former Soviet Union was once a close communist ally of North Korea. Experts believe that Putin is once again straining relations due to ongoing tensions with the West, including the United States.
