US Calls UN Meeting To Address Undermining North Korea Sanctions

Open source

Washington's ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, cited "evidence of consistent and wide-ranging Russian violations".

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley told Monday's urgent meeting of the Security Council that the violations are "systematic".

China and Russian Federation have argued that North Korea should be rewarded with the prospect of eased sanctions for opening up dialogue with the United States and halting missile tests.

The statement did not name countries, but it came a day after Haley accused Russian Federation of interfering in a report from the U.N.'s independent Panel of Experts on the implementation of sanctions.

Moscow's representative at the United Nations also said that it had not redacted a specific section on a Russian company breaking sanctions, but had instead made that part of the report confidential, meaning it will only be available to governments and not the general public.

"It's impossible to reach an agreement without offering something in exchange for your demands", Nebenzya said, adding that the United States considers the UN sanctions committee as its own "club" to beat North Korea into submission.

The 15 Council members sat to consider the latest midterm report of the Panel of Experts of the 1718 DPRK Sanctions Committee, which was established to oversee the relevant sanctions relating to North Korea.

Noting difficulties in U.S.

Tensions between the two countries have cooled in recent times, prompting hopes of peace on the Korean Peninsula, which has been divided since the 1950-53 Korean War.

"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.

The report "tells us that Pyongyang continues its nuclear programs and ballistic missile in violation of United Nations resolutions" and "we must be prepared to step up sanctions if necessary", he estimated.

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.

DiCarlo welcomed the positive announcements made by North Korea with regards to ending nuclear testing in April and May, including DPRK's leader Kim Jong-Un's stated commitment to the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

"Resorting to force will bring nothing but disastrous consequences", Ma told the council.

A White House statement issued last month and tweeted by President Donald Trump said "China is providing North Korea with considerable aid, including money, fuel, fertilizer and various other commodities".

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".

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

Russian Federation and China then blocked the United Nations from imposing sanctions on Russia-based entities and vessels sanctioned a week earlier by the U.S. Treasury Department.
