The South Korean foreign ministry is asking Russia to explain its recent dealings with North Korea. There is speculation that Russia may have made an arms supply deal with North Korea during a bilateral summit. The ministry official said that if Russia is not engaging in worrisome military cooperation with North Korea, it should transparently explain its dealings so that the international community can find it acceptable. The call for explanation comes after the Russian Embassy in Seoul expressed “deep regret” that South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol joined the propaganda campaign against Russian-North Korean cooperation. The embassy accused the US and South Korean media of trying to discredit the cooperation. The concerns arise from a summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and Russian President Vladimir Putin, where it is feared that North Korea may have agreed to supply ammunition for Russia’s war in Ukraine in exchange for food aid and weapon technology transfer.
