The British Foreign Office has issued a warning to North Korea for selling “ballistic missiles” to Vladimir Putin which have been used against Ukraine.
The FCO expressed their outrage that Putin is using North Korea’s missiles in the heart of Ukraine.
The US has declassified new intelligence and have accused Putin of being reliant on North Korea, the British Foreign Office branded this a “desperate” move by Moscow which violates the United Nations Security Council Resolutions (UNSCR).
A Foreign Office spokesperson said, “The UK strongly condemns Russia’s decision to use ballistic missiles sourced from North Korea in recent attacks against Ukraine.
“We urge North Korea to cease its arms supply to Russia.
Russia is turning to North Korea for its weapons in pursuit of its cynical and ill-conceived military aims in Ukraine.
“This is symptomatic of its isolation on the world stage and a sign of its desperation.
“Furthermore, this activity is in violation of multiple UN Security Council Resolutions, which Russia supported as a permanent member.”
The FCO added, “Any support for North Korea’s own illegal weapons programmes risks significantly undermining the UN’s long standing commitment to security, and further destabilising the region.
