US proposes to extend sanctions against DPRK due to Russia's support

Sep 21, 2023

United States lawmakers have proposed a bill calling for expanding sanctions against North Korea over its support for Russia's war.

This was reported by Yonhap.


The bill was proposed in the US House of Representatives by representatives of the Democratic and Republican parties, Gerry Connolly and Joe Wilson.

"North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a member of an alliance of tyrants working to destroy freedom and democracy around the world," Wilson said.

Wilson added that the proposed bill will ensure that dictator Kim Jong-un will not be able to benefit from, assist, or facilitate the mass murder of Ukrainians.

Connolly, for his part, said that the DPRK's support for the illegal war of the terrorist Russian Federation would mean a partnership between "two malign actors that threaten global peace”.

"We cannot allow this unholy partnership to go unchecked. It's time for the United States to take decisive action and thwart North Korean arms from being used in Putin's bloody war against the Ukrainian people," Connolly added.

As a reminder, on September 13, dictators Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin met to discuss strengthening military cooperation. In particular, the former also met with the terrorist country's Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

According to Western media, the parties could have discussed the transfer of artillery ammunition to the Russian Federation.
