North Korean Military Proliferation in the Middle East and Africa

Bruce E. Bechtol Jr.

University Press of Kentucky

North Korea has been proliferating chemical weapons, ballistic missiles, conventional arms, advisers, trainers, engineers, and technicians for a variety of projects to Syria for many years. While, in the 1990s, this proliferation picked up steam, it has been stepped up significantly during the Kim Jong-un era in light of a needy Syrian customer fighting a civil war. (North Korea has also supported Syria through proliferation and advisers in past conflicts.)

Keywords:   North Korea, Syria, weapons of mass destruction, proliferation, conventional weapons, terrorism, ballistic missiles, nuclear programs
