The United States and more than two dozen other countries are asking all nations to immediately halt valuable fuel shipments to North Korea.
A report submitted to the United Nations Security Council Sanctions Committee on North Korea accuses Pyongyang of violating a UN-set UN set cap on fuel imports by conducting dozens of ship-to-ship transfers at sea, which break international sanctions. The details in the report were described to CNN and others by a UN Security Council diplomat with knowledge of the findings.
The US complaint about North Korean smuggling came a day after President Donald Trump said he got another ‘beautiful letter’ from North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un. The White House is interested in a third summit between the two leaders.
