January 25, 2024: Niklas Swanström, ISDP’s Executive Director, was interviewed by SVT on North Korean-Russian relations.
North Korea has been accused of supplying weapons systems to the Russian government, which North Korea strongly denies.
“These are two states that are sanctioned by the international community. So there is a natural overlap here,” says Niklas Swanström.
According to him, the two countries also have weapons systems that are particularly compatible with each other.
“They are built on a Soviet platform that is easy to integrate into the Russian defense forces.”
