Belarus has suggested a terrifying axis with Russia and North Korea, as Alexander Lukashenko touted scary a new partnership.

The President said flanked by Vladimir Putin: “I think that we can think about three-way cooperation. North Korea, Russia.

“I know that the Koreans have great interest in you. I think that a piece of work can be found there for Belarus as well. Given the problems that exist.”

His comments came as he met with Putin in Sochi, on the Black Sea, where the Russian leader briefed Lukashenko on his talks with Kim Jong-un.

After the North Korean despot came to Russia, Putin stressed that Moscow did not agree to give Kim any arms deal.

“Korea is our neighbour, and we must build good neighbourly relations with our neighbours one way or another,” Putin said during a press conference after his talks with Lukashenko.

“Yes, there are certain specifics associated with the Korean peninsula. We discuss this openly; we never violate anything; and in this case we are not going to violate anything.

“But, of course, we will look for opportunities to develop Russian-North Korean relations.”

Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s spokesperson, said that no agreements or arms deals had been signed by the two leaders during the visit.

It comes after the European Parliament accused Lukashenko of being complicit Putin’s war crimes in Ukraine.

In a resolution adopted by lawmakers in Strasbourg on Wednesday, the International Criminal Court is being urged to issue a warrant for Lukashenko’s arrest.

The Belarusian President, it claims, enabled "Russia’s unjustified war of aggression" and therefore carries direct responsibility" for the destruction and damage caused to Ukraine.

In a separate charge, it also accuses Belarus of playing a role in the forcible deportation of Ukrainian children from territories temporarily occupied by Russian troops.
