Britain lashed out at two of Russia’s closest allies as Moscow is accused of showing “no signs of wanting peace”.

During a meeting held by the United Nations Security Council in New York on May 20, British Ambassador James Kariuki openly mentioned the weapons trade being carried out with Russia by Iran and North Korea.

He told the council during a gathering focused on the ongoing conflict in war-torn Ukraine: “We urge North Korea and Iran to cease all support to Russia. We note that any transfer of ballistic missiles or related technology from Iran to Russia would be a significant escalation.”

Mr Kariuki also pointed out that the Russian procurement of weapons from North Korea violates a number of resolutions issued by the UN Security Council.

Iran is believed to have been providing Russia with drones since 2022, the year the Kremlin ordered the unlawful and unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.
