The United States may introduce additional sanctions to counter North Korea's arms sales to Russia.

This was announced at a briefing on Wednesday by the representative of the US State Department, Ned Price.
 
"Just as we use and will continue to use all the tools to counter Iranian arms sales to Russia, we will do the same when it comes to North Korea arms sales to Russia.. There are existing sanctions. We will consider additional tools and powers that we can turn to to counter this activity," he said.
 
As reported, the United States accuses North Korea of secretly supplying Russia with a significant amount of artillery shells for use in the war in Ukraine and trying to hide these deliveries.

According to intelligence data, the munitions are allegedly sent to countries in the Middle East or North Africa, but in fact they are destined for Russia.

U.S. officials believe the covert North Korean shipments - along with drones and other weapons Russia has acquired from Iran - are further evidence that even Moscow's conventional artillery arsenals have dwindled in eight months of fighting.
