North Korean shipping firm skirts U.N. sanctions, gets port access


A U.N.-blacklisted North Korean shipping company continues to evade sanctions through its use of foreign-flagged ships, name changes and other means of obfuscation, according to a new report by United Nations monitors.

The U.N. Security Council’s Panel of Experts on North Korea, which monitors implementation of sanctions on Pyongyang, also said the reclusive communist nation has continued to export ballistic-missile technology to the Middle East and ship arms and materiel to Africa in violation of U.N. restrictions.

“Given the stated intentions of (North Korea), it continued efforts to enhance the scope of its nuclear and missile programs … there are serious questions about the efficacy of the current United Nations sanctions regime,” the panel said in its latest confidential report, seen by Reuters on Tuesday.
