« South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol warned North Korea about their support to Russia in the Ukranian conflict during a speech at the United Nations General Assembly session held in New York City on Wednesday, stating that such aid ‘will be a direct provocation, threatening the peace and security of not only Ukraine but also the Republic of Korea’.
« It is paradoxical that a permanent member of the UN Security Council, intrusted as the ultimate guardian of world peace, would wage war by invading another sovereign nation and receive arms and ammunition from a regime that blatantly violates’ UN Security Council resolutions », Yoon said in reference to its northern neighbor.
« If the DPRK acquires the information and technology necessary to enhance its capabilities in exchange for supporting Russia with conventional weapons, the deal will be a direct provocation, threatening the peace and security of not only Ukraine but also the Republic of Korea », Yoon said.
Earlier in the day, Yoon Suk Yeol met with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, to whom he expressed his desire to continue working with the UN to deter North Korean missile activities and improve the human rights situation in the country.
Yoon’s comments came after after Kim Jong Un six-day visit to Moscow, where he would have reportedly discussed with Russian President Vladimir Putin the shipment of weaponry amid the armed conflict in Ukraine. »
