Blinken Slams ‘Growing, Dangerous’ Russia-North Korea Military Ties

SEOUL — U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken condemned what he said was the “growing and dangerous” military cooperation between North Korea and Russia, following reports that Pyongyang is supplying weapons for Moscow’s war in Ukraine.

“This is a matter of deep concern for both of us, as well as for other countries around the world,” Blinken said at a press conference in Seoul after meeting with South Korean Foreign Minister Park Jin.

South Korea’s top spy agency believes North Korea has sent more than a million artillery shells to Moscow since the beginning of August – which it says amounts to roughly two months’ worth of supply for Russia’s war.

In return, Blinken said Russia is providing “technology and support” for North Korea’s military programs – though he did not elaborate.
