Panama postpones UN review of seized weapons

Meanwhile, Panamanian newspaper refers to President's actions as "media show"

SEOUL - Panama has postponed a UN inspection of aging Cuban weapons found aboard a North Korean ship, due to a delay in unloading the cargo, authorities quoted by AP said Wednesday.

The UN Panel of Experts — tasked with monitoring and implementing a ban on weapons imports and exports to North Korea — were originally scheduled to arrive in Panama on August 5, but will now be arriving a week later, on August 12.
