North Korea smuggled weapons worth millions to Egypt, says UN

The US newspaper reported that the Egyptian military was the actual undisclosed buyer of $23 million worth of rocket-propelled grenades seized by the Egyptian customs authority in August 2016 in Egyptian national waters after a receiving a tip from US intelligence. The U.N. said it was the "largest seizure of ammunition in the history of sanctions against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea", according to The Post. A statement from the Egyptian Embassy in Washington, D.C., said Egypt will "continue to abide by all Security Council resolutions and will always be in conformity with these resolutions as they restrain military purchases from North Korea according to The Post". The agents raided the ship and discovered 30,000 rocket-propelled grenades hidden onboard. According to the Post, the illicit arms trading is a "vital financial lifeline" that sustains North Korean dictator Kim Jong Um.

According to the report, the Egyptian Embassy in Washington pointed to Egypt's "transparency" and cooperation with United Nations officials in finding and destroying the contraband.

The United States said that "re is no progress in field of human rights and democracy" in last month, to cancel some of aid to Egypt, and a portion of ice cream plan. "Cairo got the message and it cut ties with North Korea". DPRK pilots trained the Egyptian Air Force after Cairo's defeat in the 1973 Yom Kippur War against Israel, and the two nations have been known to buy and sell ballistic missiles from one another as recently as the 1990s.

Cairo's military ties with Pyongyang go back to the 1970s with around 180,000 North Korean RPG-7 tubes in service with the Egyptian military.
