Donald Trump 'appreciates' Russia, China support on US-drafted resolution on North Korea sanctions

Washington: United States president Donald Trump commended China and Russia on Saturday for their support on a United States-drafted resolution ramping up sanctions on North Korea, saying he "appreciates" their votes.

"The President appreciates China's and Russia's cooperation in securing passage of this resolution," read a White House statement released after the United Nations Security Council's unanimous passage of the sweeping measures.

"He will continue working with allies and partners to increase diplomatic and economic pressure on North Korea to end its threatening and destabilising behavior."
