Shin made this statement during a press conference, a few hours after North Korea launched short-range ballistic missiles into the eastern waters of the country, according to South Korean military officials.

He said that North Korea initially relied on ships, but later increased the use of its railways for cross-border arms supplies.

Shin stated that Pyongyang likely received over 9,000 containers of aid in exchange for military support.
