U.N. Expert Panel “North Korea Continues Nuclear and Missile Development with Illegal Funds” August 2 at 6:24 AM
A panel of U.N. experts investigating the implementation of sanctions against North Korea has compiled the latest research report and analyzed that North Korea is still illegally obtaining money and continuing its nuclear and missile development by loading goods at sea.
A panel of U.N. experts examining the implementation of sanctions against North Korea has recently compiled a six-month research report to this month.
According to the gist of the report obtained by NHK, “North Korea continues to manufacture nuclear-related materials”, and analyzed that it “continues to improve the capability and equipment of ballistic missiles to carry nuclear warheads” after conducting four test-test tests of short-range ballistic missiles in March.
In addition, he pointed out that North Korea has been exporting coal, which is completely prohibited by sanctions resolutions, and since March, it has resumed the cost of loading goods at sea to obtain funds illegally or smuggle in refined petroleum products far exceeding the upper limit.
The resolution also requires member states to repatriate North Korean workers working overseas by December last year, but the report states that workers sent from North Korea in various countries have continued to work as hotel employees, athletes, and medical professionals since then.
The U.N. Security Council’s North Korea Sanctions Committee has expressed strong concern about this situation and wants countries to fully implement the sanctions.
