UNITED NATIONS, March 3. /TASS/. North Korea's firing short-range missiles shows that Pyongyang has drawn no right conclusions from tougher UN sanctions against it, Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin told reporters on Thursday.
"That means that they have drawn no right conclusions yet," he said.
The UN Security Council unanimously passed Resolution 2270 on Wednesday on toughening sanctions against North Korea in response to Pyongyang’s nuclear test and missile launch. The resolution envisages a ban on imports of coal, iron ore, titanium, vanadium, gold and other precious metals from the country, and an embargo on supplies of aviation and rocket fuel. Besides, the document imposes sanctions against the banking sector, mandatory cargo inspections and targeted measures against persons and entities involved in the nuclear and missile programs.
Hours after the resolution was passed, North Korea fired short-range missiles towards the Sea of Japan. All of them fell into the sea.
The Russian Foreign Ministry earlier expressed hope that Pyongyang would "perceive adequately" the decision on toughening the sanctions, "draw the right conclusions and returning to the negotiating table to resolve the nuclear problem of the Korean Peninsula."
