National Armaments Directors Meet To Discuss Ukraine
Leaders Talk Systems Repairs and Artillery Production
On September 27, the United States Defense Department announced that the National Armaments Directors met in support of Ukraine.
The directors discussed the increase of support in the arms supply strategy, as well as issues related to equipping Ukraine with upgraded military technologies. Directors discussed improving increased artillery production and tracking down repairs parts for international platforms and systems that have been donated to Ukraine.
"The longer this conflict goes on, sustainment becomes exponentially more important to the Ukrainian's continued success," Assistant Secretary of Defense for Sustainment Christopher Lowmam, as he was quoted by the Defense Department release.
Ukraine continues to be under threat of aggression from Russia, and providing the necessary arms and military equipment has become a strategically important task for its security and defense
It is expected that following the meeting of the heads of arms departments, specific steps will be taken to develop an arms strategy for Ukraine and further support the country's military sphere.
Ukraine is counting on the support of its partners in ensuring security and improving defense, as well as on cooperation with foreign partners in the field of arms, to strengthen its defensive potential and ensure lasting peace on its territory.
Analysts of the situation believe that Ukraine has great potential in developing weapons.
As Western leaders meet to support Ukraine, meanwhile, Russia continues to increase its relations with North Korea, media reports explained. Analysts warned that Russia's drawing nearer to North Korea is a violation of UN imposed sanctions.
Confirmation of Russia's arms relations with North Korea came down from White House National Security Council Spokesperson John Kirby, who told NPR News that the United States knows that Russia is interested "particularly interested" in artillery ammunition.
