NATO is concerned about RF's support for the DPRK's nuclear programs

Jun 19, 2024

NATO is concerned about the support Russia may provide to North Korea's missile and nuclear programs.


This was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, RBC-Ukraine reports citing Reuters.

According to him, Russia's war against Ukraine is supported by China, North Korea, and Iran, who all wanted to see the Alliance fail.

"We are, of course, also concerned about the potential support that Russia provides to North Korea when it comes to supporting its missile and nuclear programs," Stoltenberg said.

He said that this, as well as China's support for Russia's military economy, showed how security concerns in Europe are linked to Asia and added that next month's NATO summit in Washington would see the alliance further strengthen its partnerships with Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, and Japan. Stoltenberg said that at some point there must be consequences for China.

"They cannot continue to maintain normal trade relations with the countries of Europe and at the same time foment the biggest war we have seen in Europe since World War II," he said.

Stoltenberg said it was too early to say what those consequences might be, but it should be a problem we need to address.
