Pompeo had reportedly proposed that the USA and the communist regime in Pyongyang discuss a full declaration of North Korea's nuclear arsenal, a timeline for dismantling the nuclear program, and an unfulfilled promise made by Kim at the summit.
"These illegal ship-to-ship transfers are the most prominent means by which these transfers are happening", Pompeo said. "The United States reminds every U.N. member-state of its responsibility to stop illegal ship-to-ship transfers, and we urge them to step up their enforcement efforts as well", he said.
South Korea's Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha told the council that it must be ready to grant temporary exemptions to sanctions in specific areas such as communications to help push North Korea toward progress, according to diplomats.
But North Korea has taken no demonstrable steps towards denuclearization, and now, according to Pompeo and Haley, it is violating those sanctions with Chinese and Russian help by illegally smuggling petroleum products into the country at levels higher than allowed by United Nations sanctions.
Russian Federation and China on July 19, 2018, asked for more time to consider a request from the U.S.to the UN Security Council to halt all deliveries of refined oil products to North Korea, U.S. diplomats said.More news: Celtics GM Danny Ainge says keeping Marcus Smart was a ‘top priority’
"We need to see chairman Kim do what he promised the world he would do", Pompeo said. "There have been many places, in which Russians have been helpful", Pompeo told journalists after his meeting with the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in NY, when asked about Russia's role in North Korea's denuclearization.
He also said that "members of the Security Council and by extension all United Nations member states have unanimously agreed to fully enforce sanctions on North Korea and we expect them to continue to honor these commitments".
Real gross domestic product in North Korea fell by 3.5% a year ago, the Bank of Korea said in a statement Friday, the largest decline since 1997 when the country suffered a devastating starvation.
Speaking on Friday alongside Pompeo, Haley called the passing of three massive sanctions resolutions against North Korea previous year a "Herculean task" that brought North Korea to the table.
"We can't do one thing until we see North Korea respond to their promise to denuclearise", Haley said.More news: We Finally Know Who's Responsible For Killing Rapper XXXTentacion In Florida
In light of North Korea's apparent success at smuggling fuel, the United States argues in its report that any further scheduled deliveries of fuel by China and Russian Federation should "immediately stop".

China's UN Ambassador Ma Zhaoxu said China was committed to denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and to the promotion of dialogue and negotiations. "Russians have done many things to enforce the sanctions and we deeply appreciate that", the U.S. state secretary added.
Haley added that the USA has "photographs of proof" of those transfers and that they continue to happen. "Are they telling us that they want to continue supplying this oil?"
"If fully loaded at around 90 percent laden, [North Korean] tankers have delivered almost triple the 2018 quota at 1,367,628 barrels", a USA report on the matter to the United Nations revealed July 12. We don't need any more information. Haley asked. "They claim they need more information". Van Oosterom, who chairs the North Korea sanctions committee, told reporters: "I think for all of us it's clear that the progress is in the talks so far, that the engagement is there and the discussions are taking place".More news: Offset reportedly arrested in Atlanta
