Quick Glance: Kim Jong Un and Putin Sign Strategic Partnership
  • During a rare visit by Russian President Vladimir Putin to North Korea, he and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a comprehensive strategic partnership.

  • The agreement could expand the exchange of military technology with North Korea in exchange for much-needed munitions for Russia's war in Ukraine, potentially significantly enhancing North Korea's nuclear capabilities and threatening the Asia-Pacific region.

  • Putin and Kim emphasized their mutual support amidst tensions with the US and its allies, with Kim promising to fully support Russia's 'special military operation' in Ukraine.

  • Described as entering a 'new period of high prosperity,' the Russia-North Korea relationship is highlighted, with the agreement seen as a 'fundamental document' shaping long-term ties between the two countries, raising concerns in the West that the cooperation could undermine existing sanctions.

Quick Glance: Rutte's Offer to Orban for Top NATO Job in Exchange for Opting Out of Ukraine Support, as Reported by FT
  • Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte reportedly offered Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban the chance to opt out of NATO activities supporting Ukraine if appointed secretary-general, as reported on June 18.

  • The aim of the offer was to overcome Budapest's resistance to Rutte's candidacy. While 29 NATO members have endorsed Rutte as a potential successor to Jens Stoltenberg, Hungary, Slovakia, and Romania have long been the remaining dissenters.

  • Hungary has consistently impeded military aid to Kyiv and sanctions against Russia, leading to its reputation as the most pro-Kremlin country within NATO.

  • Rutte and Orban allegedly met at the sidelines of an EU summit dinner in Brussels on June 17. The Dutch Prime Minister assured his Hungarian counterpart that Budapest would not need to engage in NATO activities supporting Ukraine or beyond the alliance's territory.
