    US sanctions against North Korea, a holdover from the previous administration, continue to negatively affect bilateral relations with Russia, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Friday.

    ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) — Three Russian companies were targeted over alleged links to North Korea’s ballistic missile and nuclear programs in a new round of sanctions the United States announced on Thursday. These include Moscow-based companies Ardis-Bearings LLC and Independent Petroleum Company (IPC), and IPC’S subsidiary in Vladivostok, AO NNK-Primornefteproduct.

    "This is a continuation, unfortunately, of the previous line. This causes nothing but regret," Peskov said at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF). Sputnik is an official media partner of SPIEF.

    "This is a factor that continues to have a negative impact on our bilateral relations. Rather, these inertial actions," Peskov stressed.
