US accuses Russia and China of protecting North Korea from UN

The US, Britain, France, Albania, Ireland and Norway requested that the Security Council meet on Friday after North Korea, formally known as the DPRK, fired multiple missiles, including a possible failed intercontinental ballistic missile.

Representatives of China and Russia accused the US of inflaming tensions by mounting large-scale joint military exercises with South Korea.

North Korea has long been banned from conducting nuclear tests and ballistic missile launches by the Security Council, which has strengthened sanctions on the country over the years to try to cut off funding for the programs.

But in recent years, the 15-member body has been split on how to deal with the hermit Asian state. In May, China and Russia vetoed a US-led push to impose more sanctions on North Korea over its renewed launches.
