The United States warns Kim Jong Un: North Korea does not supply Vladimir Putin’s Russia with weapons for the war in Ukraine. The message was delivered from Washington by Jake Sullivan, the national security adviser, after the latest news – which has not been confirmed by the Kremlin – about a hypothetical meeting between the North Korean leader and the Russian president.
“We will continue to denounce and demand that North Korea honor its public pledge not to supply Russia with weapons that would kill Ukrainians. We have not seen the ‘North Koreans’ provide Russia with large amounts of munitions or other military assets for war.” In Ukraine, Sullivan said.
“I cannot predict what will happen in the end, I can only say that the talks are continuing and that the Russians are conducting them with increasing intensity, as evidenced by the fact that their Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, “their first man in the army, got on a plane and flew to Pyongyang to carry out the project.”“.
The administration, led by President Joe Biden, has been studying “for a long time” the possibility of providing North Korean aid to Moscow. The hypothesis of direct contact between Putin and Kim is not that far off.
He added, “We’ve also imposed specific, targeted sanctions, to try to stop any attempt to use North Korea as a conduit or as an arms supplier to Russia. We did that in mid-August – in reference to recent actions – we did that in mid-August.” We have repeated the same concept publicly and privately to the North Koreans and asked allies and partners to do the same. And Pyongyang must “fulfill its commitment not to supply these weapons.”.
