UNITED NATIONS, December 22. /TASS/. Russia and China voted on Monday against discussing the human rights situation in North Korea at the United Nations Security Council.
Eleven out of the 15 members of the United Nations Security Council, including Australia, Great Britain, Jordan, Lithuania, the United States, France and South Korea, insisted on putting this issue on the Security Council’s agenda.
Decisions on procedural issues at the United Nations Security Council are taken by majority of votes. The right of veto vested with the five permanent members /Russia, Great Britain, China, the United States and France/ is not effective.
