SEOUL: North Korea said on Thursday it hadn’t exported any weapon to Russia during its invasion of Ukraine and had no plan to do so, adding that United States intelligence reports of weapons transfers were an attempt to tarnish Pyongyang‘s image.
In a state media report, an unnamed North Korean defense official told the US to stop making “reckless remarks” and to “keep its mouth shut.”
The report comes after officials of US President Joe Biden‘s administration confirmed earlier this month a declassified intelligence assessment that Russia was in the process of purchasing arms from North Korea, including millions of artillery shells and rockets, as Moscow attempts to ease severe supply shortages in Ukraine worsened by US-led export controls and sanctions.
It also came weeks after Moscow described the intelligence finding as “fake.”
