Russia pressured UN panel to alter North Korea sanctions report: Haley

Report originally blocked by Russia in August, subsequently released to the UNSC

Russia pressured an independent UN panel into altering a North Korea related sanctions report as it implicated Russian actors in sanctions breaches, the U.S. Ambassador to the UN - Nikki Haley - said in a press release on Thursday.

The interim report, prepared by the Panel of Experts (PoE), was submitted to the UNSC this week after being blocked by Russia in August. Russia disagreed with "certain elements of the report", Russia’s UN envoy Vassily Nebenzia told media on August 30.
