Kim Jong Un To Visit Putin Amid Concerns Over Potential Weapons Deal

Kim Jong Un will travel to Russia to meet President Vladimir Putin amid fears that North Korea is arming the country in its war against Ukraine.

Kim is expected to travel to Russia sometime “in the coming days” to meet with Putin, according to North Korean and Russian officials. The U.S. and its allies have expressed concerns that North Korea could be supplying Russia with weapons in the country’s ongoing war with Ukraine, which the State Department has said would be a clear violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions.

“We urge the DPRK to cease its arms negotiations with Russia and abide by the public commitments that Pyongyang has made to not provide or sell arms to Russia,” a State Department spokesperson told the Daily Caller News Foundation last week. “And we are taking action directly by exposing and sanctioning individuals and entities working to facilitate arms deals between Russia and the DPRK.”

Kim appeared to have departed aboard a special train for Vladivostok, but an exact date for the meeting has not been confirmed by Pyongyang or Moscow, according to Reuters. Kim will be surrounded by heightened security during his travel by armored train, according to Reuters.

During the visit, Kim and Putin will potentially discuss a deal in which Russia receives antitank missiles and artillery shells, while North Korea receives food provisions, satellite technology and nuclear-powered submarines.

Kim last met with Putin in 2019, following Kim’s discussions with then-President Trump about North Korea’s nuclear disarmament.

Since President Joe Biden began his tenure, North Korea has dramatically ramped up its military production. In June, Kim promised “full support and solidarity” to Putin.

The State Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Is Biden the ultimate embarrassment to our country?
