China and Russia Face Accusations of Supporting North Korea’s Military Expansion

924

Concerns about China and Russia supporting North Korea’s military buildup have been voiced by the US, and Seoul has issued a warning about possible Pyongyang “Hamas-style tactics.”

The United States accuses Moscow of giving technical assistance to Pyongyang as well as North Korea of providing military hardware to Russia for use in its conflict with Ukraine.

North Korea has received warnings not to try any aggressive actions, according to South Korea’s Minister of Defense, Shin Won-sik.

Yoon Suk-yeol, the president of South Korea, counseled Mr. Austin to exercise caution on Sunday in light of possible North Korean attacks. 

He issued a warning, saying that one must be ready for North Korea to launch surprise attacks using “Hamas-style tactics.”

Politicians in South Korea have expressed concern about the North’s ability to launch a comparable attack on the South as Hamas launched the attacks on Israel on October 7.

Last month, the head of South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff stated that there is proof to suggest that Pyongyang’s potential future war with the South “could follow a similar pattern to the Hamas invasion.”

On October 7, Hamas fired 5,000 rockets into Israel, but reports indicate that Pyongyang’s artillery can fire up to 16,000 rounds per hour.

According to the BBC, Seoul is aggressively creating its own missile defense system, modeled after Israel’s Iron Dome, in reaction to this threat.

Concerns about China and Russia supporting North Korea’s military buildup have been voiced by the US, and Seoul has issued a warning about possible Pyongyang “Hamas-style tactics.”

Joint live-fire drills between US and South Korean troops were held last month to improve their readiness for any future “Hamas-style surprise artillery attacks” by North Korea.

South Korea and the US have been stepping up their routine military exercises in anticipation of North Korea’s expanding nuclear program. 

Over one hundred missile tests, including mock nuclear strikes on South Korea and the US, have been carried out by North Korea in the last year.

North Korea has declared its intention to fortify its arms relations with Russia in defiance of warnings from the US and other nations.

After making this declaration, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that the US is closely monitoring the situation and expressed grave concern about Russia and North Korea’s military cooperation.

Later, information surfaced that North Korea had announced its intention to accelerate nuclear weapons development as payback for the US intercontinental ballistic missile test launch.
