WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Russia on Friday of actively working to undermine international sanctions on North Korea.

Speaking at a news briefing at the State Department, Pompeo said enforcement of United Nations sanctions was essential to achieving the denuclearization of North Korea.

Pompeo spoke after U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley accused Moscow on Thursday of seeking to cover up breaches of U.N. sanctions on North Korea by Russians after it pushed for changes to an independent report on sanctions violations.
