There was a reaction to South Korea, which constantly criticized Russia and North Korea relations with the concern of “military cooperation". The Russian Embassy in Seoul announced that it was "deeply concerned" that South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol warned about military cooperation between Russia and North Korea at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
According to Yonhap, the Russian Embassy in Seoul made a statement on the social media platform Facebook regarding South Korean leader Yoon Suk Yeol's warning of "military cooperation" between Russia and North Korea in his speech at the UNGA.
In the statement, it was claimed that South Korea participated in the "propaganda campaign initiated by Washington, which seeks to discredit the cooperation of Russia and North Korea", and it was reported that Seoul was "deeply concerned" about this attitude.
"We see such speculative and unfounded statements in line with the aggressive hybrid war waged by the US-led West against our country," the statement said.
The statement called on South Korea to be "objective and balanced" in its activities, noting that Seoul should take into account the negative impact of its "anti-Russian" approaches on bilateral relations and the situation on the Korean Peninsula.
In his speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), the South Korean leader announced that he would consider the arms deal between North Korea and Russia as a "direct provocation" against his country.
The Russian Embassy in Seoul denied reports that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and Russian President Vladimir Putindiscussed military cooperation between the two countries during their meeting on September 13.
South Korea's Foreign Ministry had summoned Russian Ambassador to Seoul Andrey Kulik to the ministry to express their discomfort with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's meeting with the Russian President on "arms supply and military cooperation".
