The United States on Friday accused Russia and China of shielding North Korea from further action by the United Nations Security Council. According to Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the UN ambassador to the US, countries are going to “extreme lengths” to justify Pyongyang’s ballistic missile tests.

“You have no right to violate your Security Council obligations because North Korea might sell you weapons to fund your war of aggression in Ukraine or because you think that country would be a good regional buffer zone,” Thomas Greenfield said. . The UN envoy did not name Russia and China.

The United States and countries including the United Kingdom and France called a Security Council meeting on Friday to discuss the situation surrounding North Korea. North Korea has been launching missiles continuously for the past few months. There were even 23 on Wednesday, the largest number since Kim Jong-un came to power.

The missile tests have resulted in sanctions from the international community. However, China and Russia have argued for an easing of sanctions, saying they are pressuring Pyongyang to enter negotiations.
