N. Korea renames ships to evade UN sanctions


UNITED NATIONS, United States: North Korea has managed to evade UN sanctions targeting a key shipping company by renaming and reflagging vessels which continue to operate, a UN report said on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila). A panel of experts also reported to the Security Council that North Korean diplomats, officials and trade representatives are playing key roles in the trade of arms and ballistic-related items, in violation of UN resolutions. The Security Council blacklisted the Ocean Maritime Management company in July over an attempt to ship arms to North Korea from Cuba.
