As you know, these words are a quote from paragraph 48 of the latest UN security Council resolution 2321 sanctions against the DPRK”, — stated in the message.
After received a request to recover text that has important political value, United States, without explanation, turned the work over the document and stated that Russia “has blocked” a statement to the press. While earlier no doubt the American delegation wording did not cause.
