US, Russia clash at UN over North Korea sanctions

The United States accused Russia on Thursday of pressuring an independent panel of U.N. experts to alter a report on sanctions against North Korea that included alleged sanctions violations "implicating Russian actors".

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.

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.

In addition to illegal oil transfers, the report called out Chinese firms for buying iron, steel, and other banned products from North Korea and maintaining illegal business partnerships with North Korean operations.

"Step by step, sanction by sanction, and time and time again, Russian Federation is working across the board to undermine the sanctions regime", Haley said on Monday, stressing the importance of keeping all sanctions in place until significant progress is made on denuclearization. "Sanctions can not replace diplomacy".

The United States is accusing Russian Federation of "cheating" and undermining U.N. sanctions against North Korea. The report had been submitted to the Security Council in August, but it has been amended and not yet published.

But Vassily Nebenzia, Russia's United Nations ambassador, said Moscow insisted on having the report amended as it had become "hostage to the vision of Washington" and did not take into account Russia's views. "Who disseminates lies?", protested his Russian colleague, Vassily Nebenzia.

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

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". -North Korea negotiations, Nebenzia stressed that negotiations are "a two-way street".
