FORT ROSS (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th October, 2018) It is time to consider the possibility of relaxing sanctions on North Korea, Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vassily Nebenzia told Sputnik, stressing the need to wait for the right moment for actually doing this.
Nebenzia attended the opening of a memorial cross at Fort Ross Orthodox Cemetery in California.
"We said that it is time to think about [relaxing of North Korea sanctions]. Let's wait and see when it is the right time [to do so]," Nebenzia said.
The United Nations Security Council has introduced multiple sanctions against North Korea in response to Pyongyang's missile launches and nuclear tests. The organization, in particular, has restricted oil exports to North Korea and banned foreign companies from hiring North Korean workers.
