The United States will explore what additional steps it can take against North Korea in response to Russia’s alleged arms shipments. This was stated by the head of the press service of the State Department Ned Price on Wednesday, November 2.
According to him, all tools will be used to counteract the supply of weapons to Moscow from Pyongyang, informs TASS. “We intend to hold the DPRK accountable for its missile program, but also for arms sales to Russia,” Price said.
The day before, White House strategic communications coordinator John Kirby said that the DPRK authorities were secretly sending artillery shells to Russia.
Earlier, the North Korean Foreign Ministry said that “all the facts clearly show that the scenario of a US nuclear war against the DPRK has entered its final stage.” South Korea and the US started major military exercises October 31. These maneuvers were conceived in order to give a “powerful signal” to North Korea – the republic is going to conduct another test of nuclear weapons.
