The President of the Russian Federation named the reason for the meeting with the leader of the DPRK at the Vostochny cosmodrome
Today, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un arrived at the Vostochny cosmodrome. He was met by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. The ceremony itself to welcome the North Korean leader took place at the main entrance to the launch vehicle assembly and testing building.
Vladimir Putin greeted Kim Jong-un, noting that he was glad to see him and asking how he got there. In response, the North Korean leader thanked Putin for the invitation to Russia and the meeting, despite his busy schedule.
After visiting the Vostochny cosmodrome, Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un will hold more detailed negotiations on important issues of cooperation between the two states. Recently, Russia and North Korea have been actively establishing ties with each other and developing cooperation in various fields.
The meeting at the cosmodrome is of particular interest in this regard: North Korea has been developing its missile program for a long time, but it also needs new technologies, and Russia here can provide invaluable assistance to Pyongyang. When asked whether Russia plans to help North Korea develop its own satellites, Vladimir Putin replied: “That’s why we came here.”
- stressed the head of the Russian state.
Western media believe that during negotiations between Putin and Kim Jong-un, an agreement may be reached on the supply of North Korean ammunition to Russia. But neither the Russian Federation nor the DPRK report this. But a visit to the cosmodrome may indicate that the heads of state will agree on more active cooperation in the space sector.
