EU Amends Restrictive Measures on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea

On 8 January 2018, the EU aligned its North Korea sanctions list with part of UN Security Council Resolution 2397 adopted on 22 December 2017. Sixteen persons and one entity, the Ministry of the People‘s Armed Forces, have been added to the list of those subject to an asset freeze and travel restrictions (See Council Implementing Decision (CFSP) 2018/16 and Council Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/12). To complement the UN listing, on 22 January 2018, the EU added 17 supplementary individuals to the same list. These individuals have been identified for their involvement in illegal trade activities and activities aimed at facilitating the evasion of sanctions (See Council Decision (CFSP) 2018/89 and Council Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/1509).
