U.S. fears tampering on N. Korea sanctions

U.S. fears tampering on N. Korea sanctions”

US Ambassador Nikki Haley told a Security Council meeting that Russian Federation "cheated" on United Nations sanctions on North Korea, while Russia's United Nations ambassador said the US was blocking steps to foster cooperation between North and South Korea.

A summary of the experts report obtained in early August by The Associated Press also said North Korea has not stopped its nuclear and missile programs.

The Treasury said Wednesday that China-based Dalian Sun Moon Star, a logistics company, as well as its Singapore-based affiliate SINSMS, used falsified shipping documents to ship alcohol, tobacco and cigarette-related items into North Korea in violation of US and United Nations sanctions.

The U.S. has led efforts at the U.N.to apply severe sanctions on North Korea, aimed at forcing the regime to give up its nuclear arms program.

"Russia must cease its violations of North Korea sanctions".

Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia countered that the work of the panel of experts "became increasingly politicized, then became ultimately the hostages to the vision of Washington" and didn't take into account Russia's views.

Anchor: As President Moon Jae-in seeks a breakthrough in the stalled denuclearization talks between the USA and North Korea with his third summit with Kim Jong-un, the global community is divided over how they should deal with Pyongyang. "There have been many places, in which Russians have been useful", Pompeo told journalists after his meeting with the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in NY, when asked about Russia's role in North Korea's denuclearization.

Noting difficulties in U.S.

In an attempt to push the North to get serious about negotiations, Washington has been upping pressure on Russian Federation and China to comply with sanctions.

"What can we expect when Pyongyang is being called upon to unconditionally agree to comply with all of the conditions against a guarantee of empty promises", Nebenzia asked, saying the United States has broken promises to Tehran and pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

He called for "confidence-building measures", citing as a possibility the signing of a peace treaty to end the 1950-53 Korean War. China's U.N. Ambassador Ma Zhaoxu said tighter sanctions would result in a "dead end" and that "resorting to force will bring nothing but disastrous consequences". "We believe they are central to President Trump's efforts to convince Chairman Kim that full, final denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula is necessary".

Led by the United States, the council past year adopted three sets of wide-ranging sanctions aimed at cutting off revenue to North Korea's ballistic missile and nuclear programmes.

The Treasury said he interacted directly with representatives of the North Korean regime in Russian Federation.

Seoul expects a "significant breakthrough" from the inter-Korean summit in Pyongyang, Cho said, but added that sanctions must be implemented in a "mutually complementary manner".

After the meeting, Bessho told reporters, "We should seize the opportunity to move forward".

It added that China will "fully support" the two Koreas "in improving their relations and contribute to achieving the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and the lasting peace and stability of Northeast Asia at an early date".
