North Korean Ban Entry

The European Union (EU) on Tuesday further tightened its sanctions against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), in line with a UN Security Council resolution adopted last month in response to the country's nuclear and ballistic missile program.

The United States led a drive at the Security Council to impose two recent sets of sanctions to punish Pyongyang over its nuclear and missile tests.

The ships were reportedly the Petrel 8, Hao Fan 6, Tong San 2 and Jie Shun.

The UN representative also added that the ban came into force on 5 October, but it does not provide for the freezing of assets and ban on entry.

The new sanctions severely restrict the DPRK's oil imports, and ban its textile exports worth 800 million USA dollars and the remittances from about 93,000 overseas DPRK laborers. The panel also has received reports that North Korea "is continuing its attempts to export coal" in violation of United Nations sanctions, according to Griffiths.

He was quoted by the Associated Press as stating, "this is the first time in UN history" that the UN Security Council committee monitoring sanctions against the North has prohibited ships from entering all ports.

In addition to lead, those goods are estimated to total more than $1 billion - about one-third of the country's estimated US$3 billion in exports in 2016. UNSC Resolution 2375 also banned all condensates and natural gas liquids and capped crude oil and refined petroleum products to the country, while barring authorization of new work permits for North Korean workers. "Just a means. But of course, to be effective, sanctions must be applied by everybody", he added.

"Sanctions are not a goal in itself", they aim to bring North Korea to a negotiating table to talk about its weapons programmes that are deemed threatening to the world stability, stressed the diplomat at the end of the meeting.
