U.N. Resolution 2371 On Aug. 5, the 15 nations that make up the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2371 (2017) to place new sanctions on North Korea. The resolution comes after North Korea’s most recent ballistic missile launches, in violation of a ban on nuclear and missile tests.
The new U.N. resolution says:
• North Korea shall not supply, sell or transfer coal, iron, iron ore, seafood, lead and lead ore to other countries;
• UN Member States shall not increase the number of work permits for North Korean nationals (unless approved by the Security Council Committee), based on concerns that their earnings support North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs;
• States shall prohibit the opening of new joint ventures or cooperative entities with North Korean entities and individuals, or the expansion of existing joint ventures through additional investments.
The resolution also identified nine individuals and four entities that would become subject to a travel ban and asset freeze. The asset freeze extends to the Foreign Trade Bank, a state-owned bank that serves as North Korea’s primary foreign exchange bank. Provisions in the resolution could reduce North Korea’s revenue by about $1 billion, according to statements from delegates in the Security Council. The ban on exports from North Korea will prevent it from earning “over a $1 billion per year of hard currency that would be redirected to its illicit programs,” said a resolution fact sheet from the U.S. Mission to the United Nations. The east Asian nation earns about $3 billion per year from export revenues, the fact sheet said.
MORBNOTE ; Notice how the United Nations arrived at this decision , 15 – 0 , yet this media outlet is desperately attempting to put sole responsibility on the Trumpster’s shoulders !!!… But backs off after it’s own investigation concludes that Donald DID NOT orchestrate the whole thing … He simply voiced his approval !!! …
