New US sanctions against North Korea will not affect the operation of Russian ports, Department of Information and Press of the Russian Foreign Ministry told TASS after the US House of Representatives approved legislation to tighten sanctions against North Korea.

“We have said many times that we consider unilateral US sanctions to be unacceptable. However, the new US law, even if it is adopted, will not affect the work of Russian ports. Misperception probably arose from distortions in the translation,” the ministry said.
