North Korea’s behaviour is usually aggressive or threatening. There is no middle ground for these people, their regime and of course for their leader Kim. For the past few weeks, Kim was threatening to destroy America, fired off few missiles, kept American citizens as prisoners… A total childish behaviour if you ask me.
Kim and his country have no idea what are doing, and their behaviour indicated break but also bound with two different countries. First, their closest ally China is no longer interested in them mutual friendship so, they basically broke the love towards Kim. This decision opened up some closed doors and brought another source of income – Russia. According to few reports.
North Korea will now be operating a ferry service between Rajinand, a North Korean port, and the Russian city of Vladivostok.
The idea behind this ferry is that it might boost the amount of money flowing into North Korea — which is something it desperately needs — and might increase ties between North Korea and Russia.
The ferry’s operation “as the Rajin-Vladivostok international tourist liner will make a positive contribution to developing marine transport and economic cooperation and tourism between the two countries,” read a statement issued by North Korea’s KCNA news agency.
CNN noted that the ferry service will run once a week. It is estimated that about 40 people were on board for the ship’s maiden voyage — though it is unclear how many of them were actually on board because they wanted to be.
According to Agence France-Presse, the ferry is operated by a company called InvestStroiTrest. It will carry predominantly Russian, Chinese and North Korean passengers, though it will also transport cargo to and from North Korea.
“It’s a trading economic zone, so they don’t require visas, only an invitation, which the tourist firms would provide,” Vladimir Baranov, director of InvestStroiTrest, told AFP when asked how Russians would enter North Korea.
Why any Russian would want to go to North Korea is beyond me. They would be traveling from one horrible regime to an even worse horrible regime, which doesn’t sound like much of a vacation.
While North Korea may think that this ferry will help the country escape the international community’s sanctions and punishments, they are wrong.
If this bound between Russia and North Korea gets unbreakable, President Trump will be facing with some difficulties without a doubt. But, he must not be afraid and he must take the necessary action against… In case the worst possible scenario becomes reality.
