Russian cargo ships blacklisted for violating sanctions against North Korea

ООН обвинила КНДР в продолжении ядерной программы

Pompeo's remarks came a day after U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said the independent UN panel should release the original report, which cited a massive increase in illicit ship-to-ship transfers of petroleum products for North Korea in violation of UN sanctions.

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

"Russia can't be allowed to edit and obstruct independent United Nations reports on North Korea sanctions just because they don't like what they say", Haley said in a statement last week.

This is just the latest in a series of sanctions violations acknowledged by the Trump administration since President Donald Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at a summit in Singapore in June.

The Russian news agency TASS quoted Russia's U.N. Mission as saying the proposed sanctions were 'unjustified'.

Haley said the panel should release the original report, which cited "a massive increase in illicit ship-to-ship transfers of petroleum products" for North Korea in violation of United Nations sanctions. She said that includes ship-to-ship transfers of banned items, mainly oil but increasingly coal and other goods.

Since 2006, the UN Security Council has imposed tougher sanctions against North Korea in response to its repeated nuclear and missile tests.

In an IAEA statement released on Monday, Amano said that "the DPRK's nuclear activities are clear violations of relevant UN Security Council resolutions and are deeply regrettable".

It has been a troubled start to the season, but United come into this game on the back of successive Premier League wins over Burnley and Watford.

Haley said Russian Federation had been "cheating" despite supporting United Nations sanctions resolutions. "And now they've been caught", she said.

Haley said an amended version was submitted last week that removed evidence of Russian actors violating sanctions.

The department also accused Russia-based Profinet of providing port services, including the supplying of fuel, to North Korean vessels on at least six occasions.

They also called for the administration to increase its diplomatic efforts to compel all parties to comply with United Nations sanctions.

He then went on to say that the "countries of the UN Security Council are united on the need for final, fully verified denuclearization of North Korea as agreed to by Chairman Kim [Jong-un]". He said that such "conversations are incredibly paramount" as well as "valuable to the people of the US" as he spoke of a recent summit of the two leaders in Helsinki.

Monday's meeting, called for by the United States, came on the eve of a high-stakes inter-Korean summit in the Pyongyang.

In August, Trump requested Secretary of State Mike Pompeo cancel a diplomatic visit to Pyongyang over the issue.

Chinese Ambassador Mao Zhaoxu said "confrontation is a dead-end" and diplomacy must be "actively" promoted to bring an end to the standoff on the Korean peninsula.
