South Korea has evidence confirming that Russia is using weapons received from North Korea in its military operations against Ukraine. This is reported by the Yonhap agency.
"It is difficult to talk about this because it is an intelligence issue, but we have long confirmed that the weapons provided by North Korea are being used by Russia on the battlefield in Ukraine," the representative of the office said.
He also noted that it is too early to assess the outcome of the summit between Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin, as the North Korean president's visit to Russia is ongoing, and the North Korean leader plans to visit two more Russian cities with important military facilities.
The source added that South Korea is closely monitoring the situation and is considering possible multilateral and individual measures in this context.
It is expected that South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol will raise the issue of military exchanges between North Korea and Russia during his speech at the UN General Assembly.
The report also said that during his five-day visit to New York next week, President Yoon is scheduled to meet with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to discuss global issues such as the war in Ukraine and North Korea's nuclear threats and ways for Seoul and the UN to cooperate.
