TEHRAN, Sep. 12 (Press Shia Agency) – The United Nations Security Council passed a new round of sanctions in retaliation for North Korea’s most powerful nuclear test every conducted on September 3.
The resolution bans Pyongyang from exporting textiles while capping how much crude oil and refined petroleum products can be imported.
Natural gas condensates and liquids are also included among the items North Korea is restricted from importing in excess of UN guidelines, the resolution says.
If nearby states have reasonable suspicion that ships transiting to North Korea are carrying prohibited items, those ships should undergo inspection by the proper authorities, according to the UN-drafted resolution.
