Earlier on Thursday, the press service of the Russian mission to the United Nations said that the amendments, put forward by the Russian side, have been introduced into the report by the Committee 1718 panel of experts on sanctions against Pyongyang.

Russian Federation then also blocked a USA demand that two of the nation's shipping companies and six of their vessels be sanctioned over oil shipments to North Korea.

The Treasury announcement said that North Korea sells a range of IT services and products overseas, including website and app development, security software, and biometric identification software that have military and law enforcement applications.

The report had been blocked for publication by Russian Federation last month, with Moscow claiming it disagreed with its findings.
