VLADIVOSTOK, Russia (Reuters) – North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was shown Russia’s hypersonic ‘Kinzhal’ missiles as well as strategic bombers on Saturday by Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu, Interfax news agency reported.
Shoigu, who met Kim on his arrival in Russia’s far eastern Primorsky region, showed Kim three strategic bombers – the Tu-160, Tu-95 and Tu-22M3.
On Friday Kim inspected a Russian fighter jet factory that is under Western sanctions, part of a visit Washington and its allies fear could strengthen Russia’s military in Ukraine and bolster Pyongyang’s missile program.
Russian President Vladimir Putin and Kim discussed military matters, the war in Ukraine and deepening cooperation when they met on Wednesday.
Putin told reporters Russia was “not going to violate anything”, but would keep developing relations with North Korea. His spokesman said no agreements had been signed during Kim’s visit on military issues or any other topic.
