After concluding his visit to North Korea, Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived in Vietnam early Thursday morning, June 20.

Putin is scheduled to meet with the communist leaders of Vietnam in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam.

Tran Hong, Vietnam’s Deputy Prime Minister, and several senior diplomats welcomed the Russian President at Hanoi Airport.

On Wednesday, the “Nhan Dan” newspaper, owned by the ruling Communist Party of Vietnam, published an article by Vladimir Putin in which the Russian President praised Vietnam’s “balanced stance” on the Ukraine war.

Vietnam, which officially pursues a policy of “neutrality” in its relations with powerful countries, has so far refrained from condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Nevertheless, the country has remained a cautious ally of the United States and the European Union. Putin made a stop in Vietnam following a two-day trip to North Korea.

On Wednesday, he signed a strategic agreement with Kim Jong Un, the leader of North Korea.

Meanwhile, North Korea has announced fresh military support for Russia, further complicating the geopolitical landscape of the ongoing Ukraine conflict.

This move includes the provision of weapons and military advisors to aid Russian efforts, signaling a deepening alliance between the two nations amidst global condemnation.

The Ukraine conflict continues to escalate, with North Korea’s involvement drawing international attention. This new alliance has prompted concerns from Western nations, fearing an intensification of the conflict and a broader destabilization of the region.
