UN slams North Korea over 'provocative' sanctions evasionBacked by China, the UN Security Council on Monday unanimously condemned North Korea for its “irresponsible and provocative” attempts to evade sanctions. The council agreed during a closed-door meeting on “the importance of full compliance” with sanctions resolutions, said Ukrainian Ambassador Volodymyr Yelchenko, the council president. The remarks endorsed by China, Pyongyang’s sole ally, followed a report by the UN panel of experts that showed North Korea was flouting sanctions by resorting to middlemen and front companies abroad.
