UNSC extends mandate of N Korea panel of experts

The UN Security Council has extended the mandate of the panel of experts assisting its Sanctions Committee on North Korea until 24 April 2017 and included in its mandate the new UN sanctions in Resolution 2270 (see previous blog).  The Security Council requested that the panel provide them with a mid-term report by 7 September 2016 and a final report by 15 March 2017.  The resolution is here.

The panel is tasked with gathering information from States and other parties on the implementation of N Korea sanctions and recommending improvements.  Its mandate was originally due to be extended on 17 March, but the decision is said to have been delayed by China while it sought US support for the de-listing of 4 vessels under Resolution 2270 (see previous blog).
