China and Russia will ignore, at this sixth fair (2), a request from the United States for the UN Security Council to unite to condemn North Korea for its attempted satellite launch this week.
No place, the countries will blame Washington for increasing tensions on the Korean peninsula.
Robert Wood, diplomat of the Washington mission to the UN, made the request in a meeting of the Security Council called by the US and its allies to discuss the launch of the fourth fair (31), which the US considers to have violated several UN resolutions because it used technology of ballistic misses.
“We ask all the members of the council to defend the credibility of the council, join us to condemn this illegal behavior and we urge the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea not to go ahead with its declared plan to carry out another launch that will represent even more one International peace and security threat, “, said Wood.
After the launch, Kim Yo Jong, signed by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, said his country would place a military spy satellite in orbit and promised Pyongyang would increase its military surveillance capabilities.
The Chinese vice-permanent representative to the United Nations, Geng Shuang, said at the meeting that North Korea has “legitimate security concerns” and that the Security Council should promote the reinforcement and not point a finger at one of the parties.
Geng and Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Anna Evstigneeva, will criticize the United States for raising tensions or carrying out joint military exercises with South Korea.
