MOSCOW, February 19 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow will object to sanctions which might affect normal trade relations with North Korea, Deputy Russian foreign minister Gennady Gatilov told a press conference on Tuesday.
"Our principle stance is that additional measures of pressure on North Korea should exclusively pertain to the sphere of nuclear non-proliferation and missile launchings, on which Russia will insist in the framework of the UN Security Council," the deputy foreign minister said.
"We will object to sanctions which might affect normal trade-economic relations with North Korea," the deputy foreign minister stressed.
