What to make of this week’s North Korean-Russian parliamentary talks in Moscow

At follow-up to April's Kim-Putin summit, Pyongyang and Moscow express growing solidarity as targets of U.S. sanctions

In his first visit to the Russian Federation, the chair of the DPRK’s Supreme People’s Assembly Pak Thae Song met with the chair of the Russian parliament’s lower house Vyacheslav Volodin in Moscow this week.

The meeting occurred on the heels of a rough patch in Moscow-Pyongyang relations, following sweeping arrests of North Korean poachers by Russian law enforcement authorities.
