Moscow, January 31: While Russia has been blamed always by the United States for helping North Korea to evade sanctions, the country has pledged to send home all migrant workers from North Korea by the end of 2019 to comply with sanctions imposed by the U.N. Security Council.
Notably, recently Western European intelligence sources reported North Korea shipped coal to Russia last year; later which was delivered to South Korea and Japan. To cut the hermit country’s economic strength to run ballistic missile programmes, the United Nations banned North Korean exports of coal on August 5.
“Russia’s port of Nakhodka is becoming a transhipping hub for North Korean coal,” said one of the European security sources. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson earlier accused Russia of not implementing all the U.N sanctions properly.
