North Korea - formally known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) - has long accused the United States of having a hostile policy toward the Asian state and asserted that it has the right to develop weapons for self-defense. North Korea has been subjected to U.N. sanctions since 2006, which have been steadily strengthened in a bid to cut off funding for Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile programs. North Korea's mission to the United Nations in New York did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Thomas-Greenfield's remarks. European council members - France, Estonia and Ireland - also urged North Korea to "engage meaningfully" with repeated offers of dialogue by the United States and South Korea. North Korea on Tuesday test-fired a new, smaller ballistic missile from a submarine, prompting the United States and Britain to raise the issue in the 15-member U.N. Security Council on Wednesday.

REUTERS/Kim Hong-JiSEOUL, Oct 21 (Reuters) - North Korea said on Thursday the United States was overreacting to its recent missile test and questioned the sincerity of Washington's offers of talks, accusing it of operating "double standards" over weapons development. The Security Council met on Wednesday following a request from the United States. The North's foreign ministry spokesperson said the United States' "double standards" over missile development cast doubt over its overtures. Any wrong behaviour by the United States and the council could lead to "more serious consequences", the spokesperson said, warning against "tampering with a dangerous time bomb."

U.S. Treasury to Finish Sanctions Policy Review This Fall
  + stars: | 2021-09-10 | by ( Mengqi Sun | ) www.wsj.com   time to read: +5 min
The Biden administration expects to complete its ongoing sanctions policy review this fall, a U.S. Treasury Department spokeswoman said, as some human rights and humanitarian groups express concern about how long the review is taking and the level of engagement with nongovernmental organizations. The sanctions policy review, which Ms. Yellen committed to during her confirmation hearing, focuses in part on whether U.S. sanctions programs are achieving their stated goals and on potential unintended consequences, such as blocking of food, medicine or other humanitarian supplies. One official told The Wall Street Journal in July that the administration expected to publish the results of its sanctions policy review by the end of the summer. The Treasury spokeswoman said the sanctions review will identify steps for improving the government’s use of sanctions to ensure they remain an effective tactic of foreign policy and are updated to address U.S. priorities. But the review isn’t focused on individual sanctions programs or designations, or on an intelligence review related to the application of sanctions, she added.

REUTERS/Andrew KellyUNITED NATIONS, Aug 17 (Reuters) - The United States is urging world leaders to send videos instead of traveling to New York next month for an annual high-level gathering at the United Nations, saying it would help prevent it "from being a super-spreader event" amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The United States is also calling for all U.N.-hosted meetings and any side events to be fully virtual. "Parallel meetings and high-level events drawing travelers to New York needlessly increases risk to our community, New Yorkers, and other travelers," Thomas-Greenfield said. U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said on Tuesday that the United Nations was discussing this year's event with the United States and that "things will become a little clearer as the days and weeks proceed."

Some protesters set tires ablaze in the middle of gritty streets, which remained quieter than usual in the aftermath of Moise's killing early on July 7. Moise was shot dead at his home by what Haitian authorities describe as a unit of assassins, including 26 Colombians and two Haitian Americans. Eighteen of the Colombians were detained, three were killed by police and five were still on the run, Haitian police said. A third Haitian-American, Christian Emmanuel Sanon, was arrested on Sunday by Haitian authorities, who accused him of being a mastermind of the attack. "The Department of Justice will continue to support Haitian authorities in their review of the facts and the circumstances surrounding this attack," Price said at a news briefing on Wednesday.
