UN approves new North Korea designations targeting sanctions violators
21 entities, 27 ships and one individual reportedly added to the UN's blacklist

The UN Security Council's (UNSC) 1718 Committee has adopted new North Korea related designations against one individual, 21 entities, and 27 ships on Friday after a proposal was submitted by the U.S. the day prior.

Of the 21 entities proposed and accepted for designation, the vast majority are based in the DPRK, but the U.S. is also proposing that three entities from Hong Kong, two from China, and one each from Panama, Samoa, the Marshall Islands, and Singapore also be designated.
