US Hits Chinese and Russian Firms Over Breach of North Korea Sanctions

US slaps sanctions on companies in China Singapore and Russia for trading with North Korea

Russia has warned that the latest US sanctions against a Russian company accused by Washington of breaching worldwide restrictions on North Korea could undermine denuclearization talks with Pyongyang. The repeated issuing of sanctions, however, did not make them legitimate by any means, the Ministry said.

Now the sanction regime against North Korea is strictest, including financial sanctions, arms embargoes, a ban on missile delivery, dual-use equipment and materials, as well as exports of coal, iron, lead, and other products.

He also noted Pyongyang's recent return of remains of presumed American soldiers killed in the Korean War.

Responding to Pompeo's upbeat report, Trump said, "The relationship [between the North and U.S.] seems very good".

According to the committee, there are also about 30 Russian-North Korean companies and several other companies established jointly with Singapore and Australia.

The DPRK insists on U.S. signing a peace Treaty will contribute to peace in the region and relieve the tension.

North Korean and USA diplomats secretly held discussions in the inter-Korean village of Panmunjom last Sunday, according to diplomatic sources, to apparently arrange Pompeo's trip to Pyongyang. He did not elaborate on those unreported meetings.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said Thursday the new US sanctions come when "joint global efforts" are needed toward a settlement in North Korea.

This is stated in the article, North Korean state newspaper Rodong Sinmun.

Vasili Kolchanov, the head of the port services agency affected, told Reuters he had worked with North Korean vessels as a transport agent, but said the sanctions against him and his firm were illegal.

But South Korean officials have said that Moon has scheduled his own visit to Pyongyang in September to discuss improving inter-Korean relations with Kim after Pompeo's fourth trip to the North. "We hope it will lead to an outcome", said a senior presidential official.

The Blue House on Friday welcomed the positive atmosphere in respect to the denuclearization talks.
