O White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said on Tuesday that North Korea “will pay a price” if it supplies Russia with weapons.
At a press conference, the official said that there are no indications that Pyongyang has supplied large amounts of weapons, but negotiations with Moscow are “moving forward in that direction”.
“Providing Russia with weapons to use on the battlefield, to attack grain silos and the heating infrastructure of major cities, as we approach winter, to try to conquer territory that belongs to another sovereign nation, will not reflect do well in North Korea and they will pay a price for it in the international community.”said Sullivan at the White House.

It should be noted that, according to the US newspaper New York Times, Russia and North Korea are in negotiations on the delivery of weapons. Russia is seeking to obtain artillery shells and anti-tank missiles from Pyongyang, while North Korea is hoping to receive cutting-edge technology for satellites and nuclear submarines, as well as food aid.
According to the same newspaper, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his North Korean counterpart, Kim Jong-un, may soon meet in Vladivostok, a Russian coastal city close to North Korea.
Already this Tuesday, the spokesman of the Kremlin, Dmitry Peskov, refused to confirm the information about the meeting between Russian and North Korean leaders, but admitted the possibility of joint military exercises.
