Full text: North Korea’s new ‘comprehensive strategic partnership’ with Russia

North Korea and Russia held a landmark summit in Pyongyang on Wednesday and signed a new treaty promising “military assistance” if either side is attacked.

The signing of the Treaty on a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership between the two countries was announced at a joint press conference on Wednesday, and the next day North Korea published the Korean version of the treaty through the outward-facing Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

This move is in stark contrast to the 2000 Friendship Agreement, the full text of which was never made public and only partially published months after it was signed.
