North Korea Again Denies US Charges of Selling Arms to Russia

  • Satellite imagery shows sole rail link has been restored
  • Pyongyang has been a firm backer of Russia’s war in Ukraine

North Korea denied US allegations it was selling arms to Russia for use in Ukraine, amid worries Pyongyang could be moving closer to Moscow as it faces criticism from Washington over its weapons tests.

“We once again make clear that we have never had ‘arms dealings’ with Russia and that we have no plan to do so in the future,” a North Korea Defense Ministry official said, according to a report from the state-run Korean Central News Agency on Tuesday.
