Western press: North Korea can supply Russia with a significant amount of ammunition in exchange for food

According to Western analysts, as a result of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's visit to Russia, an agreement may be signed that involves the supply of Soviet-style ammunition, of which the DPRK has significant stocks.

In an article published in the American edition of Bloomberg, it is suggested that in exchange for the supply of ammunition, Russia can offer food to North Korea, as well as help in building a nuclear submarine and deploying spy satellites. The US State Department considers the conclusion of such a deal very likely.



The West also assumes that the task of the delegation sent by China to the DPRK on the eve of Kim Jong-un's visit to Russia is to agree on some points regarding possible military cooperation between the countries.

The US authorities threatened Pyongyang with the expansion of sanctions in case of supplies weapons Russia. Also, the State Department and the White House consider it highly likely that such a deal will be concluded.

The American edition of CNN previously reported that the Deputy Representative of the US State Department, Vedant Patel, noted that against the background of the upcoming meeting between Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin, negotiations regarding military supplies are actively ongoing.

Patel added that, in his opinion, preliminary agreements on the supply of artillery ammunition to Russia from North Korea had already been concluded during a visit to Pyongyang by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

    Most likely, the North Koreans have already shot those ammunition during the exercises, because their shelf life is not eternal.

      It seems (after Shoigu's visit to North Korea) they banned the export of rice and products made from it.
      North Korea can be "added" (officially) to those countries that will be supplied with grain for free.
      And there, let the West middet ....

        Pinocchio, for your information, is quite enterprising and smart; he saved the coins, got the key, trampled Malvina and, as a result, became the owner of his own theater. So you shouldn't have dragged it in... fool

      They have more 152 caliber shells than we do! And plus they have many different types of weapons that we desperately need now! It would be nice for us to involve their fighters as well, which would generally confuse the West. The DPRK's human potential is very high.
      It’s strange that despite our common interests, we never lifted the sanctions from them...

        The strange thing is that the military alliance of the DPRK, China, Russia, Iran and Syria has not yet been created! It seems to me that if it exists, all the bullying from the “hegemon” will stop, and Taiwan and Ukraine will return to their native harbors by default.

      It is better to supply uranium not to the USA but to the DPRK. Apparently, the process with the supply of North Korean weapons is being delayed because Putin and Shoigu supply uranium to the United States (perhaps the United States uses this uranium to produce weapons for Ukraine - armor-piercing shells for sure, but nuclear warheads are highly likely).
      1. +2
        7 September 2023
        As far as I understand, neither warheads nor armor-piercing shells can be made from fuel uranium. For warheads, this fuel uranium needs to be reprocessed - enriched to a much higher degree, and the United States buys uranium from us precisely because they have problems with enrichment even to fuel level. In addition, plutonium is now used in warheads, as a rule, which is obtained in special reactors by processing uranium.
        For shells and armor, uranium waste is used after enrichment, and so far there is enough of this good in the USA.

      The United States has been putting maximum pressure on the DPRK for a long time, and they obviously won’t be able to put even more pressure on it. Something small at most. All sanctions restrictions can be leveled out by even newer agreements with Russia. What is the point of introducing sanctions against a country around which there are two giants (China and Russia) capable of independently providing it with everything? It's just hot air)

        I probably agree that much of what is being voiced by the US administration and in particular the State Department turns out to be empty hot air and is intended for the media of their allies and nothing more. The policy of North Korea, which has a common border with China and the Russian Federation, in reality depends little on the cries of Uncle Sam.

    And who cares what the two sovereign countries agree on? In case of a visit, all agreements will already be approved on its eve, and not at the meeting of the leaders. That's how it works there.

    And why would the DPRK not participate in the NWO? At one time, we provided soldiers and equipment and ammunition and much more to help the DPRK, so there is an opportunity to repay the debt. and to teach real combat experience to the North Koreans, oh how useful it will be ..

      And why would the DPRK not participate in the NWO?

      There is nothing easier! It is only necessary to sign a military treaty with the DPRK and the North Korean troops will go to Ukraine. In 2000, during the visit of V.V. Putin to the DPRK, an agreement was signed between the DPRK and the Russian Federation, which canceled the agreement between the USSR and the DPRK of 1961.

      No. 6045. AGREEMENT OF FRIENDSHIP, COOPERATION AND MUTUAL ASSISTANCE BETWEEN THE UNION OF SOVIET SOCIALIST REPUBLICS AND THE DEMOCRATIC PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF KOREA
      Article 1
      ...
      If one of the Contracting Parties is subjected to an armed attack by any state or coalition of states and thus finds itself in a state of war, the other Contracting Party will immediately provide military and other assistance with all means at its disposal.

        The problem is that if you expand the number of countries openly participating in the war, then voluntarily/unwittingly others can also openly get involved in it. As long as there are secret games with the “retired”, everyone is happy with everything. I cannot rule out the possibility that detachments of “retired” personnel may be sent from the DPRK for in-service training.
        Obviously, no one new from our side will be allowed in, otherwise the third world war is not far away. After the DPRK, Poland may also want it, and then South Korea, the Baltic states with their wishes, and off we go... The war is strange, but let it be something other than open and uncontrolled.

          This is called both eating a fish and ... sitting down. There is nothing special to study for Koreans there. according to their new military doctrine, the war will be fought with nuclear weapons. They maintain a million army not because they like to hold parades, but because they are opposed by the Armed Forces of the Republic of Korea numbering 600000 people and the United States, according to a military agreement with the ROK, in the event of war, must transfer 2 soldiers and 300000 combat aircraft to Korea within 1000 weeks, not counting the US Navy with their marines and carrier-based aircraft. Those. Koreans cannot send soldiers to Ukraine for slaughter. the enemy will gain an advantage in trained manpower. And so North Korea on mob. the potential is twice as low as the South, not counting the mob. US resources.
          "Retirees", if they mean those who actually retired, work in the national economy, and do not sit on pensions. In the DPRK, it must be assumed that there is a disproportionate amount of manual labor due to sanctions and Tajiks do not go there.

      As they were accepted, en masse, they will have to be canceled in the same en masse ... not realistic, in today's times !!! It was not worth getting into that muddle, they were marked not in the best way ... now all that remains is to put a bolt on them and get it for being stupid.

        The problem is that we politically declare full compliance with UN decisions, and therefore politically we cannot contradict this in any way. If we stop, the UN will be completely buried. And this is fraught. And, as you rightly pointed out, lifting sanctions on North Korea in the current conditions is unrealistic. And politically, we are still for the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, which means we must identify at least some obstacles. In other respects, you will have to somehow spin, what can you do)

          And the fact that ours are trying to observe something there... the question/theme is multi-layered and for everyone/many, it’s worth rummaging around in the closet, and there are more than one skeletons there.

    Russia can offer food to North Korea, as well as help build a nuclear submarine and deploy spy satellites.
    Well, with food, everything seems to be clear. YOU NEED TO FEED YOUR FRIENDS, not the former colonies, who don’t know where they will be screwed later ...
    I'm more interested in the message of helping to build a submarine. And why should the State Department and the Pentagon be surprised here? Like kangaroos - so it is possible ... But as for China's allies and ours - so taboo! Well, where did you see double standards here?
    And at the expense of satellite intelligence, so we may well help in exchange for the use of information from these satellites. And everyone will be fine. And, for sure, we can get something useful in terms of KNOW-HOW ...

    And why not. So far, 112 million tons of wheat have been harvested this year alone. This is according to the report of the Minister of Agriculture D. Patrushev. And the grain harvesting season is not over yet. It would be very nice to apply this exchange in practice.

    If he receives 100 thousand tons of ammunition or about 4 million shells with an average weight of 25 kg (122 mm), then only this will be 100 billion rubles.
    One hundred thousand skilled Korean workers who will replace the Russians - more than 100 billion rubles a year.
    I think that it will be enough for a reactor for a submarine and for the import of some components for the space program and for the import of 200-300 thousand tons of grain (the maximum annual deficit of the DPRK).
