North Korea denies reports of “hostile forces” on the supply of weapons to Russia
The Ministry of Defense of the republic called the data on military assistance to Russia from North Korea rumors. The fact that Pyongyang is transferring ammunition to Moscow was announced at the Pentagon and the US State Department. Moscow denied these reports
The DPRK has never supplied weapons and ammunition to Russia and does not plan to do so, according to the TsTAK, citing a statement by the deputy head of the main technical support department of the Republic's Ministry of Defense.
“Recently, the US and other hostile forces have been talking about “violating the resolution” The UN Security Council, spreading “rumors about the supply of weapons” between North Korea and Russia. <…> We have never exported weapons or ammunition to Russia before and we do not plan to export them,— assured the department (quote from Reuters).
In early September, the Pentagon announced that they had recorded the fact that Moscow had asked Pyongyang for ammunition. The US State Department said Russia “is in the process of acquiring millions of missiles and artillery shells from North Korea for use in Ukraine.”
White House national security spokesman John Kirby said that the Pentagon could not provide evidence for their claims. “There is no indication that this purchase has been completed, and, of course, there is no indication that these weapons are being used on the territory of Ukraine,” — Kirby stressed.
Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya denied information about such supplies.
