These statements come as the United States previously said that Russia was supplying arms from North Korea.
The North Korea said Thursday that she had never supplied arms or ammunition to Russia and that she did not plan to do so, while warning the United States of “to shut up“and stop spreading rumors aimed at”tarnish“the image of the country.
“Recently, the United States and other hostile forces raised the UNSC ‘violation of a resolution’, spreading an ‘arms smuggling rumor’ between the DPRK and Russia… We never had exported weapons or ammunition to Russia before and we do not plan to export them“said said an official from the General Office of Equipment of the Ministry of Defense in a statement published by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
