US accuses Russia of 'cheating' on North Korea sanctions

Open source

The UN Security Council initially imposed sanctions on North Korea in response to its first nuclear test in 2006.

At the Monday meeting, Russian Ambassador to the U.N. Vassily Nebenzia responded to Haley's allegations, saying, "You reject any kind of a positive statement".

Her remarks come as the United States and its allies have ramped up military efforts to monitor and document evidence of sanctions violations, information the U.S. says proves Moscow's complicity. "Sanctions can not replace diplomacy".

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.N.'s political affairs chief said although North Korea has recently taken steps in the right direction on denuclearization, there's evidence it's still developing its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.

The showdown between the United States and Russian Federation comes as South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un kicked off their three-day summit in Pyongyang Tuesday, where the leaders will attempt to solve the current impasse in the North-U.S. denuclearization talks.

"We must not soften the sanctions regime at the global level", on the contrary, said Nikki Haley.

The Council has so far been unanimous in bolstering sanctions to choke off funding for Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

"Without this pressure, North Korea will not denuclearize", Gardner and Markey said. He went on to criticize the presence of the United Nations Command in Korea, which he called a "U.S. -monitored military entity in the Korean demilitarized zone".

The U.S. has said sanctions won't be lifted until that goal is met.

"Resolving the nuclear issue of the peninsula through just some sanctions and pressure on Pyongyang is impossible".

In the record of north korea, "the United States has evidence of Russian abuses on a large scale", assured the diplomat american, speaking of photos and videos showing vessels engaged in the transhipment of illicit sea of coal or oil at the destination of North Korea.

"The problem that we are encountering is that some of our friends have decided that they want to go around the rules", Haley said. At the same time, he still urged alternate countries to "step up their efforts" aimed at stopping illegal goods transfers to North Korea.

China's ambassador Ma Zhaoxu said "confrontation is a dead end" and called for United Nations sanctions to be enforced but gradually lifted as a reward for steps toward denuclearization. "Resorting to force will bring nothing but disastrous consequences to the peninsula".

"This council should stay united, honor its responsibility entrusted by history and push for the denuclearization and lasting peace in northeast Asia", Ma said.
