President Petro Poroshenko announced, that Ukraine truthfully adheres to the International Nuclear Non-Proliferation Regime and requested a thorough investigation on the previous accusations stated in the media that Ukraine delivered ICBM engines to North Korea, the president wrote on Facebook.
“Having voluntarily gotten rid of the third in power nuclear potential in the World, we made a unique contribution into international security, and would never have allowed calling into question our advocacy of international obligations,” Poroshenko wrote.
The president noted, that no matter how absurd the allegations seem, Ukraine, “as a responsible partner, we must thoroughly examine the information published by the New York Times” about the alleged delivery of ICBM engines to North Korea.
This is why Poroshenko requested an investigation on the issue, the results of which are to be submitted to the president in three days.

“Ukraine values its business reputation of a trustworthy partner in security and Nuclear Non-Proliferation spheres,” the president emphasized.
