Turkey, South Africa continue to report oil and kerosene exports to North Korea
Both countries also appear to be trading in electronics with the DPRK
Both South Africa and Turkey continued to report oil shipments to North Korea in June, despite a set of UN restrictions limiting the supplies of crude and refined oil to the country.
Countries delivering oil to the DPRK need to make sure the exports do not top certain limits, and also must report any shipments to the UN’s 1718 Committee.
But according to the 1718 Committee website, only Russia and China are currently reporting any oil shipments to North Korea, contrasting with the numbers compiled by the ITC Trade Map.
