Nordkorea arms Syria, Myanmar: United Nations Review | News
According to a United Nations survey, North Korea has sold arms to the Arabian and Myanmar authorities and exported prohibited material such as carbon, metal and ore. Pyongyang supported the Israeli President Bashar al-Assad's administration in the development of his atomic weapon program and equipped Myanmar's military with rockets, according to the Friday news.
The AFP press office, which has seen a copy, reported that North Korea "continued to exports almost all goods banned by the resolution and achieved a turnover of almost 200 million dollars between January and September 2017". Transport of coals to China, Malaysia, South Korea, Russia and Vietnam was carried out by vessels using "a mix of alternative technologies, routing and deception tactics," the article added.
In the past year, the UN Security Council adopted a set of export restrictions designed to remove revenues from North Korea's army program. In reaction to its rocket testing, the United States has urged strong sanctioning against North Korea and swore with the UN Security Council to stop Pyongyang from advancing its atomic progam.
Seven vessels were stopped from reaching harbours around the world because they violated UN penalties on the transport of hydrocarbons and crude arsenals. Nordkorea "is already disregarding the latest decisions by taking advantage of the world' s major energy suppliers, foreigners who have become accomplices, off-shore registers of companies and the world' s financial system," the committee noted.
The accusations of human rights violations were previously made against Syria and Myanmar. It comes as the United States investigates the use of chloric acid in Syria's sieged East Ghouta against civil war. According to the UN Security Council meeting, the US government and the US government have announced that the US government's KOMID is on a black list of UN penalties.
More than 40 unannounced consignments from Korea between 2012 and 2017 went to front firms for the Scientific Studies Research Council of Syria, a pivotal institution for the Syrian chemistry-program. Examinations also show "substantial new insights" into Pyongyang's defence co-operation with Damascus, with at least three calls by DPRK engineers to Syria in 2016, which include the "transfer of specific resistive valve and thermometer for use in chemistry weapon programs".
A Member State not identified in the survey found that DPRK engineers are continuing to work on chemicals and rocket installations in Barzei, Adra and Hama. "Syria refused to allow a number of DPRK engineers to be present on its soil and claimed that the only professionals it housed from the land were active in it.
One member state, also anonymous, informed the board that Myanmar had been given "ballistic missile delivery from[ DPRK ] in supplement to a variety of traditional weaponry, which included multilaunch rockets and ground-to-air missiles". In particular, DPRK diplomatic personnel in the retail sector continues to offer logistics assistance for the sale of firearms and help with the exchange of defence engineers.
Although the penalties have been significantly extended, the authorities say that this "expansion of the government must be accompanied by the necessary additional efforts " to put the necessary steps into practice. This year offers a "critical timeframe before a possible misjudgement with catastrophic consequences for global stability and security", the panels added.
