US accuses Russia and China of obstructing UN Security Council’s response to North Korea’s missile tests
UN, 21 November – RIA Novosti. US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield accused Russia and China of blocking the response to North Korea’s missile tests through the organization’s Security Council.
North Korea launched a new intercontinental ballistic missile last week with a range of 1,000 kilometers and an altitude of 6,100 kilometers. Anna Yevstigneeva, Russia’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN, said North Korea “naturally” reacted to large-scale exercises by the United States and its allies in the region by conducting missile tests.
“It’s the tenth time we’ve left without significant backlash. The reason is simple – two members of the UN Security Council with veto powers authorize and encourage North Korea’s actions,” Thomas-Greenfield said. said. Security Council.
“The obvious obstructions by these two members are putting the Northeast Asian region and the entire planet at risk… How many more missiles must we launch before we can respond with one voice in the Council,” he added.
Thomas-Greenfield said the United States would present a draft statement on behalf of the UN Security Council President.
UN Assistant Secretary-General Rosemary DiCarlo said in her report that the missile tested by the DPRK is the largest and most powerful missile in North Korea’s arsenal. She explained that such an ICBM could reach “all of North America,” she said.
