United States calls UN meeting on undermining North Korea sanctions made by Russian Federation

United States calls UN meeting on undermining North Korea sanctions made by Russian Federation

The sanctions are seen as being partly responsible for a thaw in relations between North and South Korea, and a meeting in June between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

China, which is North Korea's closest ally and is responsible for 90 percent of its trade, believes the Security Council should take action to reverse sanctions "at the appropriate time" in light of Pyongyang's progress to denuclearization.

There are signs that North Korea is "still maintaining and developing its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programmes", a United Nations envoy has said.

The Security Council, led by the US, ramped up sanctions on North Korea a year ago amid the rogue nation's nuclear tests, imposing sanctions on exports from oil to seafood. "We believe they are central to President Trump's efforts to convince Chairman Kim that full, final denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula is necessary".

The UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, Ms Rosemary DiCarlo, made this known at the Security Council meeting on Non-proliferation and North Korea.

"Why, after voting for sanctions 11 different times is Russian Federation backing away from them?" she said.

The announced new actions Wednesday directed at Chinese and Russian companies that the department said have facilitated illicit shipments on behalf of North Korea.

The U.S. Mission announced Friday evening that the meeting will 'discuss the implementation and enforcement of United Nations sanctions on North Korea'.

The report states on the sale of North Korean weapons to Syria, Libya, Yemen.

North Korea sells weapons to those countries, which are under worldwide sanctions.

"Russia seeks to short-circuit the regime of sanctions", said the us ambassador to the united Nations, Nikki Haley, at a meeting on the implementation of sanctions against Pyongyang.

"Russia can't be allowed to edit and obstruct independent United Nations reports on North Korea sanctions just because they don't like what they say", Haley said in a statement last week.

North and South Korea on Wednesday agreed to a series of measures they claim could end the threat of nuclear war on the peninsula. After a day of ceremonials and lunch, the two leaders held a two-hour summit meeting, with talks scheduled to continue tomorrow.


Nebenzya claimed that the United States is trying to "impose on the worldwide community their own vision of the situation", and said that the panel of experts had become "increasingly politicized", defending the revisions to the report.

The Russian envoy said the work of the Panel of Experts had become "increasingly politicised" and that the first version of the report did not meet the required standards of objectivity and impartiality.

"Global sanctions are an essential part of efforts to achieve denuclearization", Pompeo wrote.

"The problem that we are encountering is that some of our friends have decided that they want to go around the rules", Haley said. The ministry said they exchanged views on the inter-Korean summit but did not elaborate further.

The DPRK is the acronym for the North's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
