Russian military aid to North Korea would be ‘direct provocation,’ Yoon tells UN

South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol condemned possible Russian assistance for North Korea’s nuclear program as a “direct provocation,” warning that Seoul and its allies would respond to military cooperation between Moscow and Pyongyang.
