Experts have warned that Beijing may see its influence over North Korea diminish as the latter forms closer ties with Russia. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un recently met with Russian President Vladimir Putin and visited various Russian facilities. Experts believe the meeting was motivated by each country’s needs, with Russia potentially seeking ammunition supplies from North Korea. The exchange of weapons, fuel, and military technology assistance could lead to trouble for the Chinese communist regime. Despite US warnings, Beijing seems supportive of North Korea’s arms deals with Russia, as the Chinese Communist Party wants to maintain its relationship with Russia and stand against the US. The cooperation between Russia and North Korea could weaken China’s influence over both countries and pose a threat to the Chinese Communist Party. Experts highlight that the relationship between the three countries is purely based on materialistic strategic interests and lacks mutual trust and shared values. A major threat to the Chinese Communist Party could be a North Korea equipped with nuclear weapons, as it would pose a significant threat and potentially reduce China’s control over North Korea. Experts also note that Kim Jong Un’s strengthening ties with Russia reduce his dependence on China and weaken Beijing’s diplomatic influence over North Korea.
