Russia softens sanctions against N.Korea to secure interests

Russia donates $4 million in food aid for N.Korean children as ambassador visits orphanage

Russia is trying to secure its political and financial interests by revising a U.S. drafted UN Security Council sanctions resolution on North Korea, experts said Wednesday about changes Moscow reportedly requested to it.

According to the requests, North Korean civilian flights would still be allowed to obtain jet fuel overseas – an exemption to a U.S. proposed blanket ban of aviation fuel sales to the DPRK – a final version of the updated resolution obtained by Japanese media outlet NHK said.
