“Ties of camaraderie, fraternal support and good neighborliness”: Putin made a toast to strengthening friendship and cooperation between Russia and the DPRK and to the health of Kim Jong-un.

The President of the Russian Federation once again thanked for the invitation and noted the warm welcome of the Russian delegation.

“Today’s negotiations took place in a traditional trusting and friendly atmosphere and confirmed mutual interest in the further development of equal and mutually beneficial cooperation,” he said.

The Russian leader recalled that this year Russia and the DPRK celebrated an important date in the history of the two countries – the 75th anniversary of the conclusion of an agreement on economic and cultural cooperation between the states.
