North Korea has denied providing weapons and ammunition to Russia. The Defence Ministry in Pyongyang said this earlier in a statement issued on Wednesday that Washington and “hostile forces’’ had spread a rumour of arms dealings’’ aimed at tarnishing North Korea’s image.
“We have never exported weapons or ammunition to Russia before and we will not plan to export them,’’ a senior official at the ministry’s equipment bureau said in a statement published on Thursday by state news agency KCNA.
Earlier this month, White House National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby spoke of millions of rockets and artillery shells that Moscow could potentially purchase from Pyongyang. He though said that the U.S. had no evidence that any sales had actually taken place.
