Summary

The US is trying to take control of Russian sea ports.

No evidence given. On May 4, the U.S. House of Representatives passed revised legislation outlining the American response to new threats posed by North Korea’s nuclear aspirations.

These include two ports in China, eleven in Iran, four in Syria and three in Russia. The bill would sanction ports and port operators that fail to comply with UN Security Council resolutions. bit.ly/2rhAdpP,
