North Koreans sought satellite technology training in Thailand: report

Pyongyang attempted to mask origin of DPRK coal for sale in Thailand in 2017, authorities say

Thailand detailed its enforcement of UN Security Council (UNSC) sanctions in an implementation report submitted in December, revealing that it had denied visas to several DPRK citizens seeking training in satellite technology as well as incidents involving maritime inspections.

The report, dated December 7, covers UNSC resolutions 2270 (2016), 2321 (2016), 2371 (2017) and 2375 (2017) and is the country's first submitted report since 2009.
