Russia Objects UN Statement That Condemns North Korea


Russian Federation objected to a Security Council statement proposed by the US on Wednesday that would have condemned North Korea's missile tests, despite China's support of the measure, CBS News' Pamela Falk reports.

"The members of the Security Council demanded that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea shall immediately cease further actions in violation of the relevant Security Council resolutions and comply fully with its obligations under these resolutions", the statement said.

She told reporters today "The ball is in their court".

Guterres said countries "on the frontline" of the crisis - China, the United States, Japan, South Korea, Russia - must spare no effort to prevent a military buildup from Pyongyang.

Tensions have risen after U.S. President Donald Trump took a hard rhetorical line with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who has rebuffed admonitions from China and proceeded with nuclear and missile programs seen by Washington as a direct threat. In a statement on its website, the Russian Mission to the United Nations asserted that the US cut off negotiations when Russia proposed to reinsert language on dialogue.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres separately said "everything" must be done to confront the threat from North Korea and ensure that its missile and nuclear programs do not pose an worldwide threat. "They shouldn't try and play it", she said.

The paper, obtained by The Associated Press, says the North's latest actions "make clear that further worldwide pressure is required for the DPRK to change its behavior if there is to be any hope for meaningful denuclearization talks to resume".
