Dear comrades and friends!

July 19 is a significant day for the two countries.

In July 2000, at the invitation of the Great Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il, Russian President Vladimir Putin paid a visit to our country. The leaders of the two countries had a touching meeting and talks, and signed a Korean-Russian joint declaration on July 19.

This declaration is a historical document stimulating the development of friendship and cooperation between the DPRK and the Russian Federation in the 21st century.

Since then, our two countries have continuously developed exchange and cooperation in the political, economic, cultural and other fields, including the exchange of top-level delegations.

To develop the friendly relations established by the leaders of the two countries, on the occasion of significant dates of the two countries, the Korean-Russian Friendship Society organized and held a film screening, a photo exhibition and other events. The Society also held an exhibition of photographs and paintings and participated in international music festivals and international exhibitions of children's paintings in Russia. Thus, we carried out cultural exchange and cooperation between the two countries.

In particular, the friendly visit of Comrade Kim Jong Un, President of the State Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, to the Russian Federation in April 2020, became a moment to demonstrate the strengthening of the long-standing and close Korean-Russian friendship, which continues from generation to generation, from century to century, to enhance and develop the traditional relationship of friendship and cooperation between the two countries in line with the demand of the new era.

To develop strategic and traditional Korean-Russian friendly relations at the request of the new era, in accordance with the aspirations of the peoples of the two countries, is the unshakable position of the government of our Republic.

We take this opportunity to express our deep gratitude to you and your organizations for your active contribution to the development of friendly relations between the two countries.
