The United States is pushing the UN Security Council to impose more sanctions on North Korea after Pyongyang carried out a series of missile tests in defiance of United Nations resolutions, US ambassador to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, said on Wednesday.

Axar.az reports that“the US is proposing UN sanctions following North Korea’s six ballistic missile launches since September 2021, each of which was in violation of UN Security Council resolutions,” Thomas-Greenfield said on Twitter after Washington blacklisted six North Koreans, a Russian, and a Russian firm — accusing them of procuring goods for the missile programmes from Russia and China.

“Today’s designations convey our serious concern about North Korea’s continued ballistic missile launches and proliferation activities,” she wrote in a separate tweet. “We urge all @UN Member States to fully implement their obligations under UNSC resolutions.”

A US diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Reuters news agency that Washington had proposed five of those individuals also be subjected to a UN travel ban and asset freeze. The move has to be agreed by consensus by the Security Council’s 15-member North Korea sanctions committee, which includes Russia and China.
