UN adopts new restraints to tighten North Korea sanctions

The UN Security Council imposed new sanctions against North Korea, the restrictions relating to ships and shipping companies associated with the smuggling of oil and coal, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Ukrainian truth.

The oil tankers and cargo ships on the list, announced on Friday, were banned from ports worldwide or would have their assets frozen, and the shipping companies will face an asset freeze.

On Friday, the U.N. Security Council published a statement on its website, saying that Tsang had "coordinated North Korean coal exports with a North Korean broker operating in a third country".

The United States offered to make him a vessel 33, 27 shipping companies and citizen of Taiwan.

The ship was included in the new United Nations sanctions.

"The approval of this historic sanctions package is a clear sign that the global community is united in our efforts to keep up maximum pressure on the North Korean regime", U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said in response to this move, the largest blacklisting of companies and individuals caught illegally aiding North Korea.

Last year, the Security Council adopted a series of resolutions to ban North Korean exports of commodities in a bid to cut off revenue to the nuclear-armed state's military programs.

Thirteen of the 25 are North Korean while the other 12 are foreign-flagged. He is subjected to an asset freeze and travel ban.

Earlier this month, the White House said Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping agreed in a phone conversation to keep up the sanctions pressure on North Korea until Pyongyang takes concrete steps toward denuclearization.

She says it is the largest-ever set of United Nations designations against the North.

In tweets Wednesday, President Donald Trump said he looked forward to meeting Kim and felt there was "a good chance" the North Korean leader would "do what is right for his people and for humanity".

The identities of the new designees and where they were based was not immediately clear, but Haley said the U.S. had proposed them to coincide with a U.S. Treasury Department sanctions package in late February that barred U.S. persons from dealings with 50 vessels, shipping companies and trade businesses.

The measures severely restrict deliveries of oil and refined petroleum products to North Korea, but sanctions monitors have reported that Pyongyang has used vessels to dodge those restrictions.
