(VOVWORLD) - Russia and China on Monday proposed to the United Nations Security Council that it ease some economic sanctions against North Korea, on condition North Korea commits to Security Council resolutions on denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. 

The draft text also underlined the necessity of having the most favorable approach towards requests for exemptions from existing UN sanctions against North Korea for humanitarian and livelihood purposes. The draft would exempt seafood and textiles, and inter-Korean rail and road cooperation projects from UN sanctions. It also hails talks between the US and North Korea at all levels and calls the so-called six-party talks on denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. US President Donald Trump said he would be disappointed if something is in the works in North Korea and the US is watching activities there closely.
