The U.S. Statement Department on Tuesday called on all UN member states to faithfully implement the sanctions on North Korea, reponding to a recent UN report that said some countries continue to allow the sanctions to be evaded.
Yonhap News Agency says it asked a department spokesperson about the UN report.
The spokesperson, who is not named, reportedly said China and Russia figure prominently as two member states who continue to condone the North's actions.
And as the UN report also did, the official highlighted the regime's continued efforts to develop its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
The official noted the potential for the regime's violations to create greater instability and insecurity in the region, and urged all UN members to work together for a peaceful resolution.
