PoE says North Korea “flouting sanctions”: report

UN Panel of Experts report seen by Kyodo News says DPRK continues to move weapons, minerals

North Korea continues to sell prohibited goods in contravention of United Nations sanctions, a report from the UN Panel of Experts (PoE) seen by Kyodo News reads.

The DPRK is still able to move weapons and ammunition, according to the Tokyo-based news outlet, while natural resource trade remains a source of income for the regime, despite measures put in place in March last year intended to limit the North’s revenues from coal.
