U.S. sanctions North Korea’s rocket command for ties to weapons program

Treasury also listed officials of previously sanctioned North Korean banks for activities tied to the North’s weapons proliferation activities, it stated.

The extra sanctions are developed to quit the North from evading existing U.S. and U.N. sanctions and avoid Pyongyang from accessing the U.S. economic technique, the Treasury Department said in a statement.

“As a outcome of today’s action, any property or interest in home of the designated persons in the possession of U.S. persons or within U.S. jurisdiction have to be frozen,” the statement said.

The extent of the entities’ monetary holdings held in the United States being targeted was not quickly clear.

Treasury said the Strategic Rocket Force was accountable for a series of ballistic missile launches in 2014 including two medium-range Rodong-class missiles in March final year.

The North is beneath a variety of U.N. Safety Council sanctions for its missile and nuclear tests, which ban trade and financing that help the country’s weapons programs and any tests that involve the use of ballistic missile technologies.

Six folks who are officials of the previously sanctioned Tanchon Commercial Bank and the Foreign Trade Bank were added to the sanctions list.

3 shipping firms with ties to a previously sanctioned firm involved in arms shipments were also added, Treasury said.

Turkey summons Russian envoy more than alleged rocket launcher on ship: official

World | Mon Dec 7, 2015 9:08am EST


ANKARA Turkey summoned the Russian ambassador on Monday soon after accusing Russia of a “provocation” after a serviceman on the deck of a Russian naval ship allegedly brandished a rocket launcher although the vessel passed by way of Istanbul at the weekend.

Relations have deteriorated sharply given that Turkey final month became the very first NATO member in much more than half a century to down a Russian plane, which it mentioned had violated its airspace whilst flying sorties more than Syria. The pilot was killed.
