Russian military cooperation with North Korea doesn’t pose threat, Shoigu says

Speech by Kremlin’s defense chief comes after he watched Pyongyang military parade and inspected DPRK nuclear missiles

Military cooperation between Russia and North Korea “does not pose a threat to anyone,” ​​Russian defense minister Sergei Shoigu said Tuesday, weeks after his high-profile visit to Pyongyang raised speculation that he sought to purchase DPRK arms for the war in Ukraine.

Shoigu’s speech at a security conference in Moscow comes after he held defense talks with his North Korean counterparts, toured a weapons exhibition with DPRK leader Kim Jong Un and watched nuclear missiles roll through Pyongyang during a large-scale military parade in late July.
