The European country of Russia and the communist country of China have asked the United Nations to free the iron curtain country of North Korea from the clutches of economic sanctions.
All talks, conducted so far between the US and North Korea to bring peace to the Korean peninsula, have gone unsuccessful.
Russia and China are close partners of North Korea. They always stand with their all-time partner.
The International sanctions make it difficult for Beijing and Moscow to support Pyongyang – which is at present under a severe economic crisis.
Though China and Russia demand a complete removal of sanctions, if the UN gives a slight relaxation to North Korean’s coal, iron, iron ore and textile exports, they may agree without pushing anything further.
North Korea recently upgraded its nuclear capacity further. It asked the US to come up with a feasible agreement within this year.
Actually, Russia and Chine present the new demand as a humanitarian concern. The demand is presented as an effort to improve the standard of living of the people of the iron curtain country of North Korea.
It is yet to see whether the issue will be viewed though humanitarian angle or through security angle by the United Nations – more accurately, the other core members of the UN.
