EU implements new UN sanctions on N Korea / DPRK

north-korea-2-pyongyangThe EU has implemented the sanctions on North Korea / DPRK that the UN Security Council imposed in November last year (see previous blog).  These new sanctions include a cap on imports of coal from North Korea, a ban on imports of statues and several metals from North Korea, and a ban on exporting new helicopters and vessels to North Korea.  They also tighten existing restrictions on North Korea, including by limiting North Korean diplomats to only one bank account in the EU, and requiring Member States to take further measures to prevent specialised nuclear or missile-related teaching being provided to North Koreans.

See Council Regulation 2017/330 amending Council Regulation 329/2007 and Council Decision 2017/345 amending Council Decision 2016/849.
