North Korean weapons aid Russia?
Reports suggest that North Korea is preparing to sell millions of missiles and artillery rounds to its Cold War ally Russia, most likely drawn from its existing stockpile.
A U.S. intelligence dossier on the proposed purchase has been deemed "false" by Russia.
However, American officials claim that this proves Russia is desperate in the Ukraine conflict and that Moscow may purchase further military gear from North Korea.
Russia-compatible replicas of Soviet-era weaponry are believed to be the kind of ammo North Korea plans to sell to Moscow.
U.S. authorities claimed technical issues with the Iranian-made drones that Russia purchased in August, prompting international penalties and export limits.
The North maintains a sizable stockpile of shells, many of them replicas of Soviet-era ones, making it a potentially viable source of ammunition for Russia.
