Russia sees justified only UN-APPROVED sanctions against N. Korea

Russian presidential aide said that Moscow considers justified only punitive measures against North Korea that had been approved by the UN Security Council.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said Thursday that Moscow considers justified and legitimate only punitive measures against N. Korea that had been approved by the UN Security Council.

“We believe that sanctions are justified only if they receive the approval of the UN Security Council,”

Ushakov told reporters.

Tensions around Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programs flared up this summer, following the adoption of the UN Security Council sanctions, which led to North Korea trading threats and warnings with the United States.
