United Nations slaps global port ban on ships for N. Korea sanctions violations
Oct 12, 2017, 00:33
The coordinator of the panel of the United Nations regarding North Korean sanctions Hugh Griffiths called the move unprecedented. "These four vessels are prohibited all the ports (...) to have transported goods that are prohibited", he added, refusing to specify.
The ban has been taken, "October 5", said the manager following a public meeting at the united nations.
North Korea is under a United Nations arms embargo and the Security Council has banned trade in exports such as coal, textiles, seafood, iron and other minerals to choke funding for Pyongyang's missile and nuclear programs. A North Korean diplomat attended the hour-long session.
He identified the four cargo ships as the Petrel 8, Hao Fan 6, Tong San 2 and Jie Shun.
The website listed the destination of the vessels as follows: the Petrel 8 was sailing from Yantai, in China's northeastern Shandong Province to Donghae, South Korea; Hao Fan 6 from Vladivostok Russia to Abashiri, Japan; Tong San 2 sailing from Bayuquan port in China's Liaoning province to Daesan, South Korea; while the Jie Shun's destination was unknown. Those goods are estimated to be worth over USD1 billion - about one-third of the country's estimated $3 billion in exports in 2016.
North Korea has for years has been accused of evading worldwide sanctions to fund everything from its nuclear program to the lavish lifestyles of Pyongyang's biggest players. "This is a decision rather quick and decisive of the Committee" after the resolutions adopted in recent months against North Korea, welcomed Hugh Griffiths.
Griffiths also cited the Mansudae Overseas Project Group of Companies, which exports North Korean workers to generate revenue for the North Korean regime. Both have previously vetoed harsher sanctions on the secretive state.
Its plan is to further isolate the regime of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un diplomatically and cut off its access to the worldwide financial system in the hopes that it will eventually put its nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles on the negotiating table in exchange for sanctions relief.
