North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un said Wednesday that his country would “always be with Russia,” as he met with President Vladimir Putin for a rare summit likely to focus on arms deals.

“Russia is now confronting… such hegemonist forces to protect (its) security interests… we have always expressed full and unconditional support for all the measures taken by the Russian government, and I take this opportunity again to affirm that we will always be with Russia,” Kim said, according to footage broadcast on Russian TV.
