Secretary of State Antony Blinken has raised concerns regarding the military cooperation between North Korea and Russia.
During his visit to South Korea, Blinken and South Korean leaders, including President Yoon Suk Yeol and Foreign Minister Park Jin, said, “With regard to DPRK-Russia cooperation, this is a matter of deep concern for both of us as well as for other countries around the world, and we’re seeing a two-way street.”
Reports from South Korea have indicated that Russia may be receiving missile systems and ammunition from North Korea, a claim echoed by the White House, which stated North Korea had supplied military equipment to Russia for use in the war in Ukraine.
In the wake of North Korea’s alleged involvement in aiding Russia’s military efforts, the US has raised the alarm over this breach of international sanctions. Blinken and his South Korean counterpart discussed strategies to reinforce pressure on Russia to halt the exchange of military technology with North Korea, which violates several UN Security Council resolutions.
