The president of Russia, Vladimir Putin, and his North Korean counterpart, Kim Jong-un, are already face to face, starting their negotiations at the Russian Vostochny cosmodrome, in the Siberian Amur region. “Russia has now risen up in a holy struggle to defend its sovereignty and security (…) We have always supported and continue to support all of President Putin’s decisions,” Kim told the Russian leader at the beginning of the negotiations in which Bilateral cooperation issues such as economic ties, commercial and cultural exchanges will be discussed, in addition to commenting on their positions and visions on the current regional and international situation.

The conversation between both leaders, with the participation of members of their delegations, takes place on the first plant of the Soyuz-2 rocket industrial complex. “We have many issues (to discuss). I am very glad to see you. Welcome,” Putin told Kim at the start of the summit.

Kim, for his part, highlighted the “deep roots” of friendship between North Korea and Russia, previously with the USSR. The meeting between the two is expected to last several hours. The previous meeting between the two, in 2019, lasted three and a half hours.

Shortly before the summit, Putin explained to the press that he chose the Vostochi cosmodrome for the meeting because the North Korean leader “has a great interest in rockets.” “They are trying to develop the space industry,” the Kremlin chief said.

Asked if he will talk about military cooperation with the North Korean leader, Putin replied: “We will talk about all issues without rushing. There is time.”

The Vostochny cosmodrome, the construction of which has not yet been completed, occupies an area of ​​109 hectares, on which the construction of more than 200 buildings and structures is planned.
