Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a strategic partnership agreement in Pyongyang on Wednesday, Russian news agencies reported.

The contents of the document, however, have not been revealed at this stage.

According to Russian news agencies, the one-on-one talks between the two men lasted about two hours, and these were preceded by broader negotiations.

The Kremlin indicated on Monday that this “comprehensive strategic partnership” agreement would reflect “the profound evolution of the geopolitical situation in the world”, while Russia and North Korea both consider the United States as an existential enemy .

Westerners fear a strengthening of military cooperation between Moscow and Pyongyang, which already supplies the Russian army with ammunition and missiles for its offensive in Ukraine, according to them.

Kremlin diplomatic advisor Yuri Ushakov also told Russian media accompanying the presidential delegation to North Korea that Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un had exchanged gifts.

According to him, the Russian president offered Kim Jong Un a second Aurus, a Russian-made luxury car, as well as a tea set.

Regarding the gifts offered to the Russian head of state, Mr. Ushakov indicated, according to the Tass agency, that Mr. Putin had received works of art representing him.

According to him, these are “beautiful gifts”. “There are several variations of images, all very artistic, including busts,” he said.
