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. 

“We will have to obey the Security Council decision and send all workers from Russia by the end of 2019,” Russian ambassador to North Korea Alexander Matsegora was quoted by Interfax news agency. As per sanctions, all countries are required to send North Korean workers to their native by end of 2019.

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.
