Syria, Iran among N. Korea’s “resilient” customers – Berger

New book highlights areas of ongoing cooperation despite sanctions regimes

North Korea has continued trafficking arms and expertise to numerous countries after the 2006 impositions of sanctions, according to a new book by Andrea Berger at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) entitled "Target Markets: North Korea’s Military Customers in the Sanctions Era".

The 160 page document highlights how the DPRK’s potential customers can be divided into three different categories, the most of “resilient” of which are unlikely to be dissuaded by sanctions regimes alone.
