DPRK: Cardi, Pyongyang regime still able to evade sanctions

NEW YORK, AUGUST 25 – North Korea is still able to avoid some of the provision contained in the relevant resolutions adopted to stop its nuclear program, the Italian Permanent Representative Sebastiano Cardi told the press at the United Nations after chairing a meeting of the Sanctions Committee a few hours before South Korean military accused Pyongyang of a new set of launches of several short-range projectiles into the sea.

“The regime has still the capacity to evade the sanctions”, Cardi warned without mentioning recent incidents such as the interception reported on August 22 of two North Korean shipments of unspecified goods on their way to Syria.

Citing a confidential UN sanctions committee report, Reuters claimed that the importing Syrian agency was a front company for the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Centre (SSRC), the agency responsible for manufacturing chemical weapons. Cardi said that the report will be provided to the membership by the deadline of September 6.

“We have to continue to be strong implementing the sanctions. As chair committee I plan to organize an open meeting with the membership before the start of next General Assembly to explain in deeper details the measures imposed so that they can be implemented”, Cardi said.

The Italian ambassador stressed that the gradual increase in pressure established by the last resolution will put pressure to the DPRK to come to the negotiating table: “As we have said many times before: sanction are not an end in itself”.
Today’s launches dashed hopes in Washington and Seoul that the country would restrain from provocations to help pave the way for dialogue. The missiles blasted off from a coastal launching site and flew about 155 miles to the northeast before falling into the sea, the South Korean military said in a statement. Defense officials were analyzing data to determine what type of missiles were used.(@OnuItalia)
