50 nations stress need for North Korea sanctions monitoring after UN panel ends

US, ROK and Japan join in calling for UN to address DPRK weapons program following dissolution of Panel of Experts

The U.S., South Korea and Japan joined a group of 50 countries in calling for continued monitoring of sanctions on North Korea’s weapons programs on Wednesday, following the dissolution of the U.N. sanctions panel on the DPRK.

The U.N. Panel, which had investigated sanctions evasion and published its findings in binannual reports since 2009, disbanded on Tuesday after Russia vetoed a resolution to extend its mandate in March.
