"Thaw". The United States pushed for the introduction of new sanctions against the DPRK

Literally a few hours after the energy summit in South Korea announced its readiness to begin implementing the project of a gas pipeline from Russia through the territory of the DPRK, the United States in the United Nations began to promote the next package of sanctions against Pyongyang. As a result, the UN decided to introduce additional economic restrictions on the DPRK.

It is known that the sanctions will be further extended to 21 North Korean company. Attention is drawn to the fact that almost all of these enterprises fall within the scope of North Korean energy. Some of them are engaged, for example, in the extraction and sale of coal. Sanctions are also extended to several North Korean tankers used by Pyongyang to transport hydrocarbons. Restrictive measures are also being introduced to other DPRK vessels.

In the United States they stated that they "noted" several visits of North Korean ships to the Russian ports of the Far East. The statements say that North Korean ships were loading coal there. Then this coal was transported to the ports of South Korea and Japan.

Thus, in the United States made it clear that Seoul and Tokyo are under the American cap, and all their trade transactions pass through American monitoring. In this regard, it can be assumed that in South Korea, someone from the top political leadership will soon announce “erroneous information about Seoul’s readiness to support the project to build a gas pipeline through North Korea.” The United States is clearly annoyed by the fact that the very thoughts about building such a gas pipeline are visited by representatives of the official Seoul.

"Thaw". The United States pushed for the introduction of new sanctions against the DPRK

Recall that the other day the head of the DPRK, Kim Jong-un, made his first foreign visit to China.

    We need to veto these decisions, exit the sanctions regime, and fully restore relations with North Korea.

      “We need to veto these decisions ..” And the more significant the “veto” will be, the faster both Koreas will be able to begin the path towards rapprochement.

      Do you live on the moon? Here, even the title of the article is incorrect. The word SOLD it was promised to someone, threatened by someone. And in this case, not that the veto or abstained. Sanctions after DPRK are readily supported by countries, including the PRC and Russia.
      How are they going to lay a gas pipe in the sanctions regime? Is our Gazprom in the DPRK exactly on the list? Up there arms and heads are not connected in any way, they say they spat in their own pocket. negative hi

      What is it? Again, we supported the amers for sanctions against the DPRK? How else can you understand? What does it mean Americans pushed sanctions at the UN? So we agreed?
      What is it?

        It is necessary for all enterprises that already under sanctions to allow all types of activities with the DPRK (until the sanctions are lifted)

    Do not sell sanctions. Russia and China will veto. And Seoul will fall under the infernal press. Sanctions from the USA and Europe will be. Impression, the world rolls off the coils, as before the war.

    The Americans started a tricky game. Under the guise of another loop of "strangulation" of the DPRK, another unwinding of the North Korean "crisis", they started "reforming" the UN - on the one hand, they want to discredit Russia as a country that does not comply with UN orders and introduce sanctions against it, already under the auspices of the UN, and besides Moreover, try to deprive Russia of the right of "veto" or limit its use by it.

        That would be a fabulous gift to the Americans !!
        No matter how big the UN looks like, permanent membership in the Security Council is one of the few remaining signs of great power and, in general, Russia's legitimacy in the international arena.

    Seoul and Tokyo are under an American cap, and all their trade deals go through American monitoring
    And not only trade deals, but also foreign policy issues. While Americans are present in these territories with their bases nothing can be changed. She is bondage and bondage in Africa. Most of the UN countries are in the same bondage from the United States.

    And this is absolutely not clear to me. It is already clear that the United States is honing its weapons against Russia on the same DPRK, and why we help them with this is completely incomprehensible to me ...

      Nothing can be forced through VETO. These are the rules. So Russia, and most importantly China, at least abstained.

      From a geopolitical point of view, the unification of the two Koreas is most likely not beneficial for us. But the warming of relations between them is very profitable! At the very least, the railway branch from the Trans-Siberian Railway to South Korea would come in handy.

        Why? In the historical perspective, a strong independent state close to China is not bad. Even independent strong Turkey near Syria is better for us than an obedient American vassal. At least the US Department of State has been busy keeping Korea even disconnected for about 15 years.

    And the concentration camps in South Africa, the Angles created at the beginning of the last century, in the United States in the Depression as well, the Indians were exterminated for money.

    It proves 1001 times that the United States, hiding behind a corrupt United Nations pocket, destabilizes the world, artificially unleashing heated conflicts, resolving entirely its economic and political interests, due to the destruction of states, blood and suffering of people from other countries, pitted among themselves to please Anglo-Saxon happiness and prosperity. ....
