N. KOREA SHARPLY INCREASES MISSILES SALES TO MIDEAST
Middle East Newsline
17th Dec, 03
LONDON [MENL] -- North Korea was said to have delivered 400 ballistic missiles to clients in the Middle East and sharply increased sales over the last year.
The South Korean Defense Ministry told parliament in a report that Pyongyang delivered 400 Scud-class missiles to a range of Middle East countries since 1985. The report said the missile export constituted the largest source of hard currency for the Stalinist regime.
The report said the best clients of North Korea were Iran, Iraq, Syria and Yemen. The report did not say how much Pyongyang earned from the exports. But the Yonhap News Agency said the figure was $110 million.
"Since the middle of the 1980s, North Korea has exported 400-odd Scud missiles along with missile-related parts to the Middle East region," Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Ki-Beom, quoting the report, said. http://www.menewsline.com/stories/2003/december/12_17_3.html
