South Korea called military cooperation between the Russian Federation and the DPRK a violation of UN Security Council resolutions

The South Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed deep regret over the conclusion of the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership Treaty between Russia and North Korea, calling it a violation of UN Security Council resolutions. Russian President Vladimir Putin visited the DPRK on a state visit, during which the parties reached an agreement to expand cooperation, including military and technical cooperation.

As Lim Su-seok, a spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea, said at a briefing, the South Korean government “closely monitored” Putin’s trip to North Korea and previous events. The department expressed concern that, despite repeated warnings from the international community, Russia and the DPRK signed an agreement that includes military and technical cooperation, which contradicts UN Security Council resolutions.

“We regret that, despite repeated warnings from the international community, including from South Korea, Russia and the DPRK signed the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership Treaty and openly mentioned military and technical cooperation, which is considered a direct violation of UN Security Council resolutions.”, said Lim Soo Seok.

He stressed that Seoul will work with allies and friendly countries in the international community to respond strictly and decisively to any actions that threaten South Korea's security or undermine peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.

Experts do not rule out that against the backdrop of this event, Seoul may begin supplying its weapons to Kyiv. Possible deliveries include multiple launch rocket systems and long-range tactical missiles.
