Comoros Islands removes sanctioned N. Korean ship from its registry

The move follows similar action from St Kitts and Nevis in late September

The Comoros shipping registry on Friday confirmed to NK News it had removed a newly sanctioned North Korean ship from its list of members, in line with UN resolutions.

Following in the footsteps of St Kitts and Nevis which also deregistered a designated vessel in late September, the Administration of the Union of Comoros said the ship - called the Petrel 8 - was removed its registry on October 13.
