Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean President Kim Jong Un met for a bilateral meeting in Pyongyang on Wednesday.

But ahead of their meeting, South Korea claimed the two leaders would sign an agreement on military cooperation in Pyongyang. They have intelligence on this.

A warning message has also been given to Russia by Seoul.

In a message on Wednesday, South Korean National Security Adviser Chang Ho-jin warned the Russian leader not to go “beyond a certain limit”.

Chang, South Korea’s former ambassador to Russia, said after ending the war with Ukraine, Moscow should “consider what is more important between North Korea and South Korea”.

He also said that now the details of their agreement are beginning to emerge. So it remains to be seen whether Moscow has actually ‘crossed’ that line.

Note that Ukraine has previously approached South Korea for military assistance. However, it was not successful. But Chang also said Seoul may now reconsider its position.
