UN Imposes Additional North Korea Sanctions

UN Imposes Additional North Korea Sanctions

share this

The UN Security Council has voted unanimously to impose sanctions against North Korea in response to last month’s nuclear test. The sanctions, intended to hinder North Korea’s weapons programs, impose financial and travel restrictions on diplomats and individuals associated with the DPRK military.

The North Korean response to international criticism of its nuclear and missile activities has been particularly heated of late. Before today’s UN vote, North Korea threatened to “[exercise] our right to preemptive nuclear attack” against the U.S.

Whether the new sanctions will influence North Korea’s calculus remains unclear. As ASP recently noted, developing an effective North Korea policy requires an understanding of their nuclear history.
