Russia, China block US effort to halt North Korea fuel deliveries

Russia and China have blocked an American initiative aimed to halt fuel deliveries to North Korea. Washington accuses that deliveries exceed North Korea's annual ceiling for 2019.

According to diplomatic sources, Moscow and Beijing said more time was needed to study the US request, which was backed by 25 UN members including Japan, France and Germany.

A week ago, the United States, in a report, accused North Korea of breaching the United Nations-imposed ceiling on fuel imports by carrying out dozens of ship-to-ship transfers.

The cap on fuel imports is among a series of tough sanctions adopted by the UN Security Council in response to North Korea's ballistic missile and nuclear tests.
