United Nations bans 4 ships from all ports for North Korea ties

North Korean Ban Entry

Griffiths later told several reporters that "this is the first time in United Nations history" that the Security Council committee monitoring sanctions against Pyongyang has prohibited ships from entering all ports. It also described Petrel 8 as flying under the flag of Comoros, while Jie Shun is under Cambodia and Hao Fan 6 under Saint Christopher and Nevis. In September, textile products were also banned, work permits for North Korean citizens overseas and, in part, imports of petroleum products.

The Security Council North Korea sanctions committee, which operates by consensus, agreed at the request of the United States, to blacklist the ships on October 3 for "transporting prohibited items from the DPRK" (North Korea), according to documents seen by Reuters on Tuesday. A North Korean diplomat attended the hour-long session.

He also pointed to the significance of implementing a port ban, rather than an assets freeze or travel ban - meaning that the vessels "are banned from all ports".

According to Mr. Griffiths, of the ship "was carrying prohibited goods".

According to a source close to the dossier, since the vessels in question have been referred to have carried or continue to carry even today, coal, iron, or fish north koreans, goods expressly targeted by the last trains of Un sanctions. 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.

"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.

These latest sanctions ban North Korea from importing all natural gas liquids and condensates, and cap its crude oil imports. Both have previously vetoed harsher sanctions on the secretive state.

Griffiths told United Nations diplomats that the panel of experts is getting reports that the DPRK "is continuing its attempts to export coal" in violation of United Nations sanctions.
