US calls UN meeting on undermining North Korea sanctions

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The United States is calling an urgent meeting of the U.N. Security Council in response to what it says are efforts by some countries “to undermine and obstruct” the implementation of sanctions against North Korea.

The U.S. Mission announced Friday evening that the meeting will take place Monday.

It didn’t identify the countries, but U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley 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.”

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 U.N. sanctions. It said some products allegedly were off-loaded from Russian ships.
