The accusations against Moscow in the hiring of workers from North Korea despite the sanctions of the wrong North Korean citizens working in Russia under the contracts concluded before the adoption of the resolution of the UN Security Council, said the representative of the Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

«I would like here to draw on expert information, because this is what we requested. Such accusations lack any basis. Without exception, all the workers from the DPRK are on the territory of the Russian Federation on employment contracts which were issued prior to September 11, 2017, as provided for in paragraph 17 of UN security Council resolution 2375, and unable to work until 22 December 2019 in accordance with paragraph 8 of UN security Council resolution 2397,» — said Zakharov.

In December 2017 the UN Security Council imposed new international sanctions against North Korea, which were the most rigid of all time. The resolution received a room 2379. In particular, the sanctions apply not only to export and import with North Korea, but also require third countries to abandon the North Korean workforce.
