United States to Push Additional North Korean Restrictions

Following Pyongyang’s launch of a hypersonic missile, the US announced fresh UN sanctions against seven North Koreans. The ambassador of the United States to the United Nations made the announcement.

The US Treasury and State Departments announced sanctions on five North Koreans linked to the country’s nuclear and missile programs on Wednesday.

The US ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, stated that the US is seeking UN sanctions.

North Korea has launched six high-velocity missiles as of September 2021, prompting this response. This is in addition to the fact that these operations are in violation of Security Council accords.

North Korea’s ruler, Kim Jong-un, announced in a statement earlier this week that he personally oversaw the successful test of a hypersonic missile the day before.

This was the country’s second successful missile launch in less than a week, which officials called a provocation.

In 2017, the UN Security Council voted unanimously for the first time.

In response to North Korea’s nuclear and missile tests, former President Trump pushed through three rounds of economic sanctions against the country.

The restrictions, which are still in effect, limit Pyongyang’s capacity to obtain oil and prevent the regime from shipping coal, iron, seafood, textiles, and other items.
