Kim Jong Un has not halted nuclear missile programmes despite his talks with Trump, UN warns

A new report by the United Nations warns that North Korea has not stopped its nuclear and missile production despite the promise made by President Kim Jong Un after talks with US President Donald Trump.

A summary of the report by experts looking into UN sanctions against Pyongyang found that Pyongyang was violating international sanctions, including “a massive increase in illicit ship-to-ship transfers of petroleum products”. North Korea is also accused of violating sanctions by transferring coal at sea and is disregarding an arms and financial sanctions embargo.

Ship-to-ship transfers for petroleum products, oil and coal, are among some of the “increasingly sophisticated evasion techniques” used by North Korea to side-step sanctions.

Experts also claim North Korea has tried to sell weaponry and other military equipment through foreign intermediaries, including Syrian arms traffickers, Houthi Shiite rebels in Yemen, as well as Libya and Sudan. Military co-operation between North Korea and Bashar al-Assad’s regime were also continuing despite sanctions, the experts added.
