  • Despite detente, sanctions on North Korea fan TB epidemic

The United States is asking the U.N. Security Council to order an immediate halt to all deliveries of refined oil products to North Korea after finding that Pyongyang had violated restrictions on those imports, according to documents seen by AFP on Thursday.

Only Russia and China have detailed genuine offers of about 14,000 tons of refined oil to North Korea in 2018, according to the website of Security Council North Korea sanctions committee.

"We call on all nations to maintain decisive pressure on (North Korea), including by fully implementing existing U.N. sanctions", the statement said.

News outlet Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported that the us sent a report to the United Nations sanctions committee stating that at least 759,793 barrels of oil products had been delivered to North Korea from January 1 to May 30.

Thursday's developments follow Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang last week, which was meant to make progress on a denuclearization agreement with North Korea.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un pledged at an unprecedented June 12 summit in Singapore with U.S. President Donald Trump to move toward denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, but has yet to provide details of how or when he might dismantle a weapons programme Trump has vowed will not be allowed to threaten the United States. "A very nice note from Chairman Kim of North Korea".

When Pompeo left, the North Korean foreign ministry accused the secretary of state of promoting a "unilateral and gangster-like demand for denuclearization".

The United States did not say which countries it believed were illicitly providing North Korea with refined petroleum. The illicit transfer of fuel in North Korea could have easily exceeded the annual upper limit of 500,000 barrels, they stated. But it includes only one specific instance of a Russian-flagged tanker, the Patriot, conducting a ship-to-ship transfer, on April 10, with the North Korean tanker Wan Heng 11.

In Washington, President Donald Trump released a letter from Kim Jong Un, in which the North Korean leader voices confidence in efforts to end their standoff but called on his United States counterpart to take "practical actions" to build trust.
