The Strength of North Korea

The Russian President noted that North Korea, despite many years of economic pressure, provocations, blackmail and military threats from the US, efficiently defends its interests.

“[T]he country’s leadership and its head Comrade Kim Jong Un have repeatedly expressed their intention to resolve all the existing differences by peaceful means. But Washington, refusing to implement previous agreements, keeps setting new, increasingly harsh and obviously unacceptable requirements.” Putin added.

Putin further highlighted that North Korea is achieving impressive results in improving its defense capabilities, as well as scientific and industrial power.

“We see the force, dignity and courage with which the people of the DPRK fight for their freedom, sovereignty and national traditions, achieving tremendous results and genuine breakthroughs in strengthening their country in terms of defence, technology, science and industry,” Putin said.
