Bangkok: The Turnbull government has criticised Myanmar over reports the south-east Asia country has been receiving ballistic missile system technology and weapons from North Korea.
A spokesperson for the Department of Foreign Affairs told Fairfax Media it is “concerned” by the reports and condemns North Korea’s illicit weapons program “in the strongest possible terms”.
But the spokesperson said there are no plans to cut the Australian Defence Force’s training and other support for Myanmar’s military.
A confidential report by independent United Nations monitors, leaked to journalists in Washington, revealed North Korea violated UN sanctions to earn US$200 million last year, including by supplying weapons to Myanmar and Syria.
