Russia has sufficient resources to monitor the performance of their international obligations. This was stated by Vice-Premier, the presidential envoy in the far Eastern Federal district (FEFD) Yuri Trutnev, commenting on the intention of Washington to take under special control a number of Russian ports, RIA Novosti reported on Friday, may 5.

“The United States should be engaged in the Affairs of the United States of America. As for our ports, we have enough authorities and control authorities that control fulfillment of all international obligations assumed by Russia,” said Trutnev.

Earlier Friday, the head of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev, commenting on the us a bill to strengthen control over the implementation of sanctions against the DPRK, said that the document “provides the power scenario with a forced inspection of the American warships all ships”. The Senator noted that such a scenario actually means a Declaration of war, and expressed hope that it will never be implemented.

The day before, on may 4, the house of representatives of the United States Congress approved a bill allowing tougher sanctions against North Korea. The document aims at maintaining Americans reporting regarding compliance with the sanctions regime the ports of China (Dandong, Dalian), Iran (Abadan, Bandar Abbas, Bushehr), Syria (Latakia, Tartus) and the Russian Primorye (Nakhodka, Vanino and Vladivostok).
