tit-for-tat policy: China-Russia block US-backed UN’s bid to impose sanctions on north korea

A few days back America initiated a campaign within the 15-member Security Council to extend UN sanctions to five North Koreans.

Upholding their tit-for-tat policy, China and Russia jointly blocked a US-backed bid to impose United Nations sanctions on five North Koreans in response to recent hypersonic missile tests by Pyongyang.

China’s block came on Thursday before a new closed-door Security Council meeting on North Korea, and it was followed by Russia’s decision to oppose the American proposal. The meeting was convened on the request of the United States.

The United States expressed its displeasure at the decision of China and Russia of blocking the move.

“We have these sanctions for a reason,” ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield said when asked about the Beijing and Moscow opposition.

“And for any member state to oppose putting sanctions… gives, in my view, the DPRK a blank check,” she said, using an acronym for North Korea.

A few days back, after Washington imposed sanctions on five North Koreans linked to the country’s ballistic missile program, America initiated a campaign within the 15-member Security Council to extend UN sanctions to those same five people.

Also targeted were four China-based North Korean representatives of SANS-subordinate organisations, the Treasury Department said: Sim Kwang Sok, Kim Song Hun, Kang Chol Hak, and Pyon Kwang Chol.
