North Korea Are in Violation of Anti-Nuclear Sanctions, According to the United Nationsby

Donald Trump’s momentous meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un was nothing short of historical, if it hadn’t been led up to with so much online bluster and will-they-won’t-they – the end result saw US and Pyongyang figureheads appear to amicably meet and discuss world matters, with North Korea gaining considerable ground through Trump agreeing to tie up military movements in South Korea – and with Kim reportedly agreeing to start denuclearization of his reclusive state. Many press outlets and opinion pieces have opted to take Kim’s words with a pinch of salt – however, it appears that a supposed rocket-building site is undergoing dismantling – with some insiders alleging that Pyongyang may simply be opting to secretly develop its weaponry elsewhere instead.

Certainly, the United Nations remains worried. This week, the UN advised via a confidential report (obtained by Reuters) that North Korea has failed to cease its nuclear program – and its missile development – despite sanctions having been made against them. The UN has insisted that Pyongyang ceases missile and nuclear development and – it appears – a six-month report shows that the state has directly violated such encouragement.

“(North Korea) has not stopped its nuclear and missile programs and continued to defy Security Council resolutions through a massive increase in illicit ship-to-ship transfers of petroleum products, as well as through transfers of coal at sea during 2018,” the report reads. The report goes on to suggest that the state is working in a military fashion alongside Syria and has continued to trade over $100 million in goods across various territories in Asia and South America. Requests for comment have, at the time of writing, gone unheeded – but it seems that the UN is resolute on Kim’s forces continuing to act against their enforcements.

Despite Kim’s apparent pledge to denuclearize North Korea, concerns are still rife with regard to what Pyongyang may be planning for the future. The US remains firm on keeping certain sanctions on North Korea in place until clear actions emanate from the state – despite suggestions from China and Russia to allow such enforcements to ease off. The UN is now concerned that their financial sanction system is being undermined by what they have referred to as North Korea’s ‘deceptive practices’. Will such practices end with Kim’s recent meeting with Trump? Will further sanctions be necessary? We will – as always – keep you informed.
