Canada has asked South Korea to supply it with artillery rounds, Seoul said on Monday, apparently to “backfill” supplies that Ottawa has sent to Ukraine, upping pressure on South Korea to provide — at least indirectly — lethal aid in the war.

Canada has provided Ukraine with M777 towed howitzers, which fire 155-millimeter shells. Last week Defense Minister Anita Anand announced Canada would be sending an additional 20,000 rounds of 155-mm ammunition, sourced from the United States.
