Tanzania won’t deny N. Korea is providing military assistance

Despite Obama visit to Tanzania in July, military suspected of cooperating with North Korea

LONDON – The Tanzanian Minister of Foreign Affairs has refused to confirm or deny allegations that North Korean military technicians are working in his country.

The claims, published initially in the online magazine Africa Confidential on August 2, allege that the Tanzanian military is engaging North Korean experts to repair its Soviet-era MiG-21 fighter jets and help import arms via private front-companies to the East African nation.
