The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s foreign ministry has denied media reports that it supplied shells and weapons to Russia. The spokesperson also reiterated that “the DPRK remains unchanged in its principled position on the issue of the ‘arms deal’ between the DPRK and Russia, which never happened.” The representative of the North Korean Foreign Ministry also said that Russia has enough military resources. He added that the Russian people are the most courageous and have the will and the ability to secure their country and defend its integrity. According to him, it is the United States that sheds blood by supplying arms to Ukraine. Washington insists that North Korea supports the private military company Wagner Group with ammunition. US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield previously claimed that Washington could “confirm that North Korea made an initial delivery of weapons to the Wagner Group, which paid for this equipment”. She offered no evidence, but promised to raise the issue at the top of the Security Council. John Kirby – strategic communications coordinator at the National Security Council – said the Wagner group had received missiles. The founder of the Wagner Group, Yevgeny Prigozhin, denied all these allegations and called them rumors and conjecture. “Unfortunately, Kirby makes a number of statements based on speculation. Everyone knows North Korea hasn’t been supplying weapons to Russia for a long time. And no such attempt has ever been made. By Therefore, North Korea’s arms supply is nothing but gossip and speculation,” Prigozhin, quoted by his other company, Concord, as saying on social media Thursday evening. Previously, US media had accused Iran of shipping military drones to Russia. Tehran categorically rejects allegations that Iran transferred drones to Russia for use in the special military operation in Ukraine, Iranian Ambassador to the UN Amir Saeid Iravani said earlier.Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani also denied the reports.Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said pointed out that Mosc or was unaware of any drone deal with Iran.

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s foreign ministry has denied media reports that it supplied shells and weapons to Russia.

“The false report by Japanese media that the DPRK has offered ammunition to Russia is the most absurd decoy, which deserves no comment or interpretation,” the Foreign Ministry spokesperson said.

The spokesperson also reiterated that “the DPRK remains unchanged in its principled position on the issue of the ‘arms deal’ between the DPRK and Russia, which never happened.”

The representative of the North Korean Foreign Ministry also said that Russia has enough military resources. He added that the Russian people are the most courageous and have the will and the ability to secure their country and defend its integrity.
