DPRK asks Russia for help with nuclear weapons

Jun 24, 2024

The United States believes that North Korea may ask Russia for technologies to improve long-range missiles and nuclear weapons in exchange for military assistance.

This was stated by US Deputy Secretary of State Kurt Campbell during a discussion organized by the US Council on Foreign Relations on June 24.

Campbell recalled that Putin's recent visit to the DPRK was the first for the Russian ruler in more than 20 years and emphasized the partnership between Moscow and Pyongyang in the context of Russian aggression against Ukraine.


"This partnership has its limits, but it cannot be ignored," he said.

The US Deputy Secretary of State noted that in recent months there has been a "dramatic increase in the level" of relations between Russia and North Korea, as a result of which Moscow has received a "significant amount" of North Korean artillery shells and long-range missiles.
