Pyongyang, December 23 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA on Thursday as regards the fact that Japan's media spread a false report that the DPRK transported munitions to Russia by rail:
The Japanese media's false report that the DPRK offered munitions to Russia is the most absurd red herring, which is not worth any comment or interpretation.
The DPRK remains unchanged in its principled stand on the issue of "arms transaction" between the DPRK and Russia which has never happened.
The international community will have to focus on the U.S. criminal acts of bringing bloodshed and destruction to Ukraine by providing it with various kinds of lethal weapons and equipment on a large scale, rather than lending an ear to the groundless theory of "arms transaction" between the DPRK and Russia cooked up by some dishonest forces for different purposes.
Taking this opportunity, I would like to say that the Russian people are the bravest people with the will and ability to defend the security and territorial integrity of their country without any others' military support. -0-www.kcna.kp (Juche111.12.23.)
