The evidence presented by the United States in support of their proposal is completely inconclusive, the statement said.
Last week, the United States imposed sanctions on an individual and several entities, including Russian commercial bank Agrosoyuz, for allegedly practicing illegal activities bypassing international restrictions on the DPRK.
According to the statement, Russia also rejects the methods used by the U.S. delegation to the UN Security Council and its subsidiary bodies, which attempted to impose hasty decisions advantageous to it without due consideration of other members' opinions. ■
