The West and its allies are scared: Russia concluded a key strategic agreement with the DPRK

Vladimir Putin's visit to North Korea and the conclusion of the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership Agreement between Russia and the DPRK caused a sharp reaction from the South Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This move was seen as a violation of UN Security Council resolutions, as well as a threat to security and stability on the Korean Peninsula.

Treaty on Comprehensive Strategic Partnership between Russia and the DPRK

During his visit to North Korea, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership Agreement with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. This agreement covers a wide range of cooperation, including military and technical cooperation. The parties expressed their intention to deepen cooperation in the defense sector, which caused concern in the international community.

At a briefing, the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea, Lim Soo-seok, expressed deep regret over this step, calling it a direct violation of UN Security Council resolutions. He stressed that the South Korean government was closely monitoring Putin's trip to North Korea and previous events. Despite repeated warnings from the international community, Russia and the DPRK signed an agreement that includes military and technical cooperation, which is contrary to UN Security Council resolutions.

Reaction from South Korea and the international community

South Korea expressed its willingness to work with allies and friendly countries in the international community to respond strictly and resolutely to any actions that threaten the security of South Korea or undermine peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula. This step underlines the seriousness of Seoul's intentions and its readiness to defend its interests in the face of a growing threat.

Experts do not rule out that in response to the conclusion of an agreement between Russia and the DPRK, South Korea may begin to supply its weapons to Ukraine. Possible deliveries include multiple launch rocket systems and long-range tactical missiles. South Korea has a large number of K239 Chunmoo systems in service, which use the same principle as the American HIMARS MLRS. These systems are capable of striking at a range of over 200 kilometers, which is of particular concern.

Strategic implications

The conclusion of the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership Agreement between Russia and the DPRK has serious strategic consequences for the region. Military and technical cooperation between these countries can strengthen the position of the DPRK, which, of course, is opposed by the West and its allies.

However, Russia warned of consequences. But Moscow’s arguments remained ignored, for which Russia’s potential adversaries now have to pay the price.
