Hanoi, July 22 (ANI): North Korea has said that the United States has violated a July 9 UN statement by imposing fresh sanctions on it
The China Daily quoted Ri Tong Il, a spokesman for the North Korean delegation at the ASEAN Regional Forum, as saying the measures announced by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in South Korea were in violation of the July 9 UN statement.
Clinton told reporters Wednesday in Seoul that the United States will introduce new "country-specific" sanctions against North Korea's procurement of nuclear materials.
The UN Security Council issued a statement on July 9 over "Cheonan" warship case, unanimously deploring the attack on the South Korean warship that killed 46 sailors in March. The Council, however, stopped short of blaming Pyongyang, which has denied any involvement in the incident. (ANI)
