Putin threatened to arm North Korea

Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin, directly warned the U.S. and its allies that he was willing to arm North Korea, in violation of U.N. sanctions.

Speaking to reporters in Vietnam before returning to Russia, Putin cast his threat as a response to Western nations that have provided weapons that Ukraine has used to strike Russian territory.

“Those who supply these weapons believe that they are not at war with us. Well, as I said, including in Pyongyang, then we reserve the right to supply weapons to other regions of the world,” Putin said, referring to the North Korean capital.

Though Putin didn’t say what weapons he would give to North Korea, Kim Jong-un, the country’s leader, is seeking to advance his nuclear warheads, missiles, submarines and satellites, all areas in which Russia possesses some of the world’s most sophisticated and dangerous technology.

Background: For years, Russia supported U.N. efforts to constrain North Korea’s nuclear weapon and missile programs. But now Putin is calling for an end to sanctions he once approved of to raise the cost of U.S. support for Ukraine and to secure conventional ammunition and weaponry from North Korea.

Context: This week Putin reaffirmed a mutual defense pact with North Korea, rattling officials in South Korea and Japan and creating a new headache for China.

Israel’s military at odds with Netanyahu

For months, divisions have quietly grown between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel’s military over the direction of the war in Gaza. This week, that rift spilled into the open.

The sharpest and most public break came with unusually blunt comments from Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari, the armed forces’ chief spokesman. In an interview aired on Israeli television on Wednesday, Hagari appeared to counter Netanyahu’s promises of “absolute victory” over Hamas. “The idea that it is possible to destroy Hamas, to make Hamas vanish — that is throwing sand in the eyes of the public,” he said.

Netanyahu’s office was quick to issue a statement saying that the military and his government were both committed to “the destruction of Hamas’s military and governing capabilities.”

Analysis: Hagari’s remarks reflected growing concern among Israeli military leaders that they might be handed responsibility for administering Gaza, a retired Israeli general said.

U.S.: After Netanyahu lashed out at the U.S. on Tuesday for withholding some heavy munitions, a White House spokesman yesterday described his comments as “deeply disappointing.” It was the latest back-and-forth between the allies, who have increasingly diverged on how Israel is conducting the war.

Gaza: The only way for almost all people in Gaza to escape the horrors of the war is by leaving through neighboring Egypt. But that’s a complicated and expensive ordeal that involves paying thousands of dollars to middlemen or an Egyptian company.

Dutch prime minister is poised to lead NATO

Mark Rutte, the departing prime minister of the Netherlands, is expected to be elected as the next secretary general of NATO after Romania’s president dropped his bid.

Rutte, 57, has guided more than $3 billion in Dutch military support to Ukraine since 2022. He has increasingly echoed a main NATO message that supporting Ukraine in its war against Russia is vital for preserving democracy and national sovereignty across the alliance.

A shift for nomads of the sea

The Bajo people once lived mainly on boats or in offshore huts on wooden poles anchored to the sea bottom. Their communities are found off the coasts of Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. Long renowned for their skill at fishing and free diving, they traditionally came to shore only to trade or to shelter from storms.

Starting in the late 1980s, the Indonesian government developed settlements for the Bajo on land so they could gain access to services like schools. More of the Bajo began spending time on land. Some gave up their seaborne lives entirely.

To those who study the Bajo, there’s little question that the culture is losing touch with its nomadic, seafaring past. Supporters of the Bajo hope that the younger generation will not forsake their connection to the sea.
