Security advisers of S. Korea and US decry N. Korea’s missile transfer to Russia for use in Ukraine


The national security advisers of South Korea and the United States condemned “in the strongest possible terms” North Korea’s transfer of ballistic missiles to Russia for use in Ukraine during a phone call on Tuesday, the White House said.

National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan spoke with his new South Korean counterpart, Chang Ho-jin, to discuss the North’s increasing military cooperation with Russia and its provocative actions along the Demilitarized Zone separating the two Koreas, it said.

Their conversation followed the U.S.’ revelations that the North has provided Russia with several dozen ballistic missiles, some of which were launched against Ukraine on Dec. 30, Jan. 2 and Saturday.

“The two officials condemned in the strongest possible terms the DPRK’s transfer of ballistic missiles to Russia and Russia’s use of these missiles against Ukraine,” the White House said in a readout, referring to the North by its official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
