Egypt claims full compliance with sanctions on North Korean guest workers

Claim follows U.S. President Trump’s past pressure on Cairo to drop relations with Pyongyang

Following the total ban on UN member states hosting North Korean workers commencing on December 22, Egypt is the latest country to turn in a report claiming full compliance with the measures.

Their report to the UN Security Council (UNSC) 1718 Sanctions Committee was submitted on December 19, according to a document uploaded to its corresponding website early Friday.
