U.S. Bid To Ban Fuel Shipments To North Korea Fails

Trump privately frustrated over lack of progress with North Korea report

"I am guessing North Korea responded that they should first take a confidence-building step together, for example by declaring an end to the (1950-53 Korean) war", Roh reportedly said.

Follow-up talks this month between Pompeo and North Korean senior officials in Pyongyang had a rocky start, with North Korea accusing the United States of making "unilateral and gangster-like" demands.

Pompeo traveled to New York Friday to join Haley for a meeting with the U.N. Security Council representatives, including Chinese and Russian representatives, for what Haley called "frank talk".

The top USA diplomat warned that North Korea is trying to get around the sanctions, smuggling petroleum products into the country by sea at levels that exceed what is allowed under worldwide sanctions.

Russian Federation and China on July 19, 2018, asked for more time to consider a request from the U.S.to the UN Security Council to halt all deliveries of refined oil products to North Korea, U.S. diplomats said. Pompeo asked. "We need to see Chairman Kim do what he promised the world he would do".

In February, the USA government released an advisory that listed 27 businesses it said were involved in illegally supplying oil to North Korea, mostly through ship-to-ship transfers.

Asked at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado about White House national security adviser John Bolton's statement that North Korea could denuclearize in a year, Coats said: "It's technically possible but probably not going to happen". North Korea doesn't independently publish figures on economic growth. He then went on to say that the "countries of the UN Security Council are united on the need for final, fully verified denuclearization of North Korea as agreed to by Chairman Kim [Jong-un]".

He then warned that "when sanctions are not enforced, the prospects of successful denuclearization of North Korea are diminished".

He added that China will "fully implement" United Nations sanctions resolutions, adding that "everyone" else should as well.

USA documents sent to the committee and obtained by The Associated Press cite 89 instances between January 1 and May 30 in which North Korean tankers likely delivered refined products "illicitly procured" via such transfers.

"We must also crack down on other forms of sanctions evasion, including the smuggling of coal by sea, smuggling by overland borders, and the presence of North Korean guest workers in certain countries", he said. "North Korean cyber thefts and other criminal activities are also generating significant revenues for the regime, and they must be stopped".

Under a United Nations sanctions resolution adopted last year, crude oil supplies to North Korea were limited to 4 million barrels per year, with a ceiling of 500,000 barrels put on refined oil products.

Moscow and Beijing said they need additional time to investigate the U.S. allegations and put a six-month "hold" on the U.S. request.

"We don't need any more information", Haley said Friday. The sanctions committee has what it needs.

Security Council members said that during his briefing, Pompeo urged enforcement of sanctions and said that a discussion about easing them could begin only once concrete actions had been taken on the ground.

The secretary of state said he and President Donald Trump were "upbeat" about the prospects of North Korea fulfilling its promise.
