RF ambassador: Loosening of veto right unlikely to help enhance UN Security Council efficiency.

UNITED NATIONS, October 29 (Itar-Tass) - Russia does not share the idea that the United Nations Security Council would work better if the right of its permanent members to block its resolutions is loosened, Russian Premanent Representative at the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said on Tuesday.

“It is a profound mistake to believe that the loosening of the veto powers might help enhance the efficiency of the Security Council,” he said. “On the contrary, it will have a reverse effect leading to “rubber-stamping” approaches that reflect the opinion of one group of states. The United Nations was conceived not for that.”

Sanctions mean declaration of war: Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)


PYONGYANG, Jan. 25 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) vowed Friday to take "strong physical countermeasures" if South Korea is directly involved in the UN sanctions, which would be seen as "a declaration of war" against Pyongyang.
"We declare complete nullification of the Joint Declaration on Denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula adopted in 1992 and its total invalidity," the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea said in a statement.
As long as the South Korea persistently pursues a hostile policy, the DPRK will never negotiate with anyone, it said.
