UNITED NATIONS cheap air max 90 womens , Jan. 10 (Xinhua) -- The UN Security Council on Wednesday welcomed the latest interactions on the Korean Peninsula, but remained adamant in upholding sanctions against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

"Members of the council noted that such initial dialogue between the two Korean states can open possibilities for confidence and trust building on the Korean Peninsula, to reduce tensions and drive toward de-nuclearization," he said.

Despite the positive development cheap nike air max 95 shoes , the Security Council would not budge on sanctions against the DPRK for its nuclear weapon and ballistic missile programs.
"The members of the Security Council reiterated that the DPRK and all other member states should comprehensively and strictly implement all relevant resolutions of the Security Council," said Umarov.

The Security Council has adopted 10 resolutions containing sanctions against the DPRK since 2006.

Oakland Athletics slugger Yoenis Cespedes defended his home run derby title in dominating style on Monday (US time), joining Ken Griffey Jr as the only players to win back-to-back crowns.
The 28-year-old Cuban crushed Cincinnati Reds infielder Todd -Frazier 9-1 in the final round at Target Field stadium, the home of Major League Baseball's (MLB) Minnesota Twins.
"I just discovered recently Ken Griffey Jr was the only other player to win consecutive titles and it was something that I wanted to accomplish cheap nike air max shoes ," Cespedes said through an interpreter. "I was able to get past the first round which allowed me to breathe and regather myself and that -allowed me to win this title one more time."
Former Seattle Mariner Griffey Jr won the home run hitting -contest in 1998 and then repeated in 1999.
Cespedes, who hit a total of 30 home runs, led off the final round of the annual long ball showcase, which was delayed one hour at the start because of rain. The former Cuban national baseball team member finished two homers shy of his total in 2013.
His power display included a home run that sailed 452 feet (138 meters) into the outfield seats.
Cespedes stepped up to the plate in the final round after hitting 21 homers in the opening rounds.
He became the fifth consecutive American League player to win the derby. Prince Fielder was the last National League player to take the title in 2009.
Oakland third-base coach Mike -Gallego cheap air max 95 shoes , who also threw to -Cespedes last year at New York's Citi Field, pitched the home run balls.
Frazier had his brother Charlie pitch to him. Charlie Frazier was a sixth-round draft pick but never made it to the major leagues.

Some of the game's best sluggers decided to skip the event. Mike Trout, Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Abreu cheap air max 90 shoes , David Ortiz and Miguel Cabrera decided not to take part for a variety of reasons.
Of the three players who have hit the longest home runs in the league this season, Miami Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton was the only one to compete on Monday night. Stanton blasted a 484-foot homer on April 4.
Trout hit the longest homer of the season so far, a 486-foot monster shot on June 27.
