US anger at Russia changes to UN N.Korea report

US anger at Russia changes to UN N.Korea reportSeveral paragraphs referring to Russian oil trade in a United Nations report about sanctions on North Korea have been removed at Moscow’s urging, sparking US anger on Thursday. Russia at the end of August had blocked publication of the report on the implementation of sanctions against North Korea because it disagreed with findings that Pyongyang had exceeded a 2018 import cap for oil set by the sanctions imposed last year, a diplomatic source said last month. Sources at that time also said Russia blocked a US request that two Russian shipping companies and six of their vessels be sanctioned over oil shipments to the North.
