Lukashenka asked the government members and ordered them to outline corresponding measures as a response to Moscows sanctions by next week. The resolution proposed a new complex mechanism for imposing sanctions which would have canceled the existing procedure. At the same time Russia was criticized for cowardice because of sending its delegation and blackmail for refusal to pay its contribution to the Council of Europe. The council unanimously approved a US drafted resolution renewing for a year the mandate of the panel of experts which reports to the UN sanctions committee on North Korea. Russia wants the sanctions committee to grant more exemptions on humanitarian grounds Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia told AFP. The indiscriminate application of the resolution prevents many things from happening in North Korea. the united states maintains that pyongyangs policies are responsible for the dire shortages of food and medicine in north korea. UN sanctions resolutions specify that humanitarian aid should not be affected by the tough measures but aid organizations have said they have been hit hard
