In the coming days is scheduled to vote on a new round of sanctions against North Korea at the UN security Council. Russia and China are not going to support in the UN security Council a draft resolution, the United States, which introduces a new package of sanctions against the DPRK, Izvestia writes, citing a source in the Russian diplomatic circles. It is noted that the proposed restrictions include an embargo on energy supplies to Pyongyang and the ban on North Korean workers abroad. According to the interlocutor of the newspaper, the document will not support neither Moscow nor Beijing. He also said that Russia opposes additional sanctions measures. Recall that in response to another missile launch of the DPRK on 4 July, the U.S. permanent representative to the UN, Nikki Haley said that Washington is ready to use all means, including military force. She announced a new resolution with a “proportional response” to North Korea.
