Borrell spoke with the head of South Korean diplomacy about Ukraine's need for ammunition
The European Union's top diplomat, Josep Borrell, said he met with South Korea's defense minister on Saturday to discuss Ukraine's ammunition needs.
The meeting on the sidelines of the Shangri-La Dialogue, Asia's top security summit, came amid pressure from the United States for South Korea to provide arms and ammunition to Ukraine.
"Good meeting with Korean Defense Minister Lee Jong-sup. "We shared a common alarm about North Korea's continued provocations and discussed Ukraine's ammunition needs."
A US ally and major producer of artillery munitions, South Korea has so far ruled out sending lethal aid to Ukraine, citing business ties with Russia and Moscow's influence over North Korea, despite growing pressure from Washington and Europe to supply arms. .
Hundreds of thousands of South Korean artillery rounds are on their way to Ukraine via the United States, after Seoul's initial resistance to arming Ukraine.
