Putin signs military pact with North Korea

In a surprising turn of events, Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have signed a military pact to support each other in case of aggression against either country. The announcement came as Putin visited North Korea, where he was greeted with a grand red carpet welcome featuring roses, cheering crowds, and ceremonial gunfire.

During the visit, both countries emphasized the strength of their friendship, with Kim Jong Un even going as far as to express his full support for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. This has raised concerns, especially from the US and South Korea, who accuse North Korea of providing Russia with artillery ammunition for the conflict in Ukraine in exchange for food and military aid.

The signing of this pact marks a significant development in international relations, with many questioning the implications for peace and stability in the region. Sophie Raworth presents this report on BBC News, providing insight into this latest development in the ongoing geopolitical landscape.
