Check individuals visiting N.Korea for sanctions violations, U.S. says

No signs of China inspecting any cargoes going in to North Korean borders as of yet

Small items and packages carried by individuals to North Korea should be considered cargo and subject to searches as outlined in Resolution 2270, the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations said last week.

This includes cargo contained in luggage carried by individuals or otherwise, both entering and leaving North Korea, something which could therefore directly impact tourists or other businesspeople visiting the country.
