MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 12th February, 2019) Russia never shared ballistic missile technologies with North Korea, Vladimir Yermakov, director of the Department for Non-Proliferation and Arms Control at the Russian Foreign Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said in an interview with Sputnik.

"Russia strictly observes the sanctions regime established by the UN Security Council against N.

Korea, including its missile part, as we are certainly not interested in the emergence of one more state with weapons of mass destruction and their means of delivery at our borders," Yermakov said.

The diplomat stressed that Russia has never delivered modern tactical missile systems to North Korea.

"The Scud-B missiles, which laid the foundation of North Korea's current [ballistic] missile arsenal were acquired by Pyongyang from 'third countries,' not from us," Yermakov said.
