North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un met with Russian President Vladimir Putin Wednesday as the two arrived at the Vostochny Cosmodrome in Russia's Far East, set for rare talks.
The two leaders met at a remote Siberian rocket launch facility, and began with the inspection of a Soyuz-2 space rocket launch facility.
Their decision to meet at this venue may suggest Kim is seeking Russian assistance for developing military satellites.
"That's why we came here. The leader of the DPRK shows great interest in rocket engineering, they are also trying to develop space," said Putin when asked by Russian reporters whether Russia would help North Korea build satellites.
Kim told Putin that North Korea would be "together" with Russia in what he termed a "fight against imperialism," seemingly a reference to Moscow's invasion of Ukraine and the West's response.

“I would like to briefly make the people aware of the upcoming danger for humanity,” said Kolakusic.
Robotics company Boston Dynamics is pledging not to support the weaponization of its products and calling for its competitors to do the same.
In a new letter, the firm said recent efforts to weaponize their robots - such as a Russian inventor who strapped a submachine gun to a Unitree robot and filmed it shooting targets - had added to the urgency of their declaration.
'We pledge that we will not weaponize our advanced-mobility general-purpose robots or the software we develop that enables advanced robotics and we will not support others to do so,' the letter, which was signed by six other companies, including Unitree, states.
The Massachusetts-based tech company has frequently seen videos of its robot dogs Spot or its humanoid robot Atlas go viral for performing various stunts or athletic tasks in public.
Webmaster addition: The problem is that once a customer has purchased the robot, they can do whatever they want with it.

Depressingly predictable research from Which? serves as another reminder, if one was needed, that furnishing your home with internet-connected "smart" devices could be a dumb idea if you'd rather try to preserve your privacy.
The consumer rights organization's analysis of a number of IoT products – from speakers and security cameras to TVs and washing machines – found that they all demand customer data above and beyond what is needed for the product to perform its function, and then distribute that information to a horde of faceless corporations.
Consumer campaign group Which? pointed out that this means consumers are not only in many cases paying thousands for the product itself, with all its "smart" connected bells and whistles, but continue to pay in the form of their personal data.
Spyware masquerading as modified versions of Telegram have been spotted in the Google Play Store that's designed to harvest sensitive information from compromised Android devices.
According to Kaspersky security researcher Igor Golovin, the apps come with nefarious features to capture and exfiltrate names, user IDs, contacts, phone numbers, and chat messages to an actor-controlled server.
The activity has been codenamed Evil Telegram by the Russian cybersecurity company.
A threat actor called Redfly has been linked to a compromise of a national grid located in an unnamed Asian country for as long as six months earlier this year using a known malware referred to as ShadowPad.
"The attackers managed to steal credentials and compromise multiple computers on the organization's network," the Symantec Threat Hunter Team, part of Broadcom, said in a report shared with The Hacker News. "The attack is the latest in a series of espionage intrusions against [critical national infrastructure] targets."
ShadowPad, also known as PoisonPlug, is a follow-up to the PlugX remote access trojan and is a modular implant capable of loading additional plugins dynamically from a remote server as required to harvest sensitive data from breached networks.
Apple released security updates for older iPhones to fix a zero-day vulnerability tracked as CVE-2023-41064 that was actively exploited to infect iOS devices with NSO's Pegasus spyware.
CVE-2023-31064 is a remote code execution flaw that is exploited by sending maliciously crafted images via iMessage.
As reported by Citizen Lab earlier this month, CVE-2023-31064 and a second flaw tracked as CVE-2023-41061 were used as a zero-click attack chain dubbed BLASTPASS, which involves sending specially crafted images in iMessage PassKit attachments to install spyware.
When the phones received and processed the attachment, it installed NSO's Pegasus spyware, even on fully patched iOS (16.6) devices.
Apple released fixes for the two flaws with macOS Ventura 13.5.2, iOS 16.6.1, iPadOS 16.6.1, and watchOS 9.6.2, and CISA published an alert requiring federal agencies to patch by October 2, 2023.
Adobe has released security updates to patch a zero-day vulnerability in Acrobat and Reader tagged as exploited in attacks.
Even though additional information on the attacks is yet to be disclosed, the zero-day is known to affect both Windows and macOS systems.
"Adobe is aware that CVE-2023-26369 has been exploited in the wild in limited attacks targeting Adobe Acrobat and Reader," the company said in a security advisory published today.
The critical security flaw is tracked as CVE-2023-26369 and can let attackers gain code execution after successfully exploiting an out-of-bounds write weakness.
While threat actors can exploit it in low-complexity attacks without requiring privileges, the flaw can only be exploited by local attackers, and it also requires user interaction, according to its CVSS v3.1 score.
CVE-2023-26369 was classified by Addobe with a maximum priority rating, with the company strongly advising administrators to install the update as soon as possible...
