With all the international sanctions on North Korea, it might seem like the regime has been cut off from the rest of the world.
But according to a Washington-based think tank, dozens of countries have continued to work with the North over the last three years, violating UN resolutions.
Lee Jeong-yeon has the details.
Upon North Korea's most recent long-range missile launch, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley urged all countries to comply with UN sanctions and limit cooperation with the regime.
But just recently, according to a report by a Washington-based think tank, 49 countries were found to have violated UN Security Council resolutions on North Korea... between March 2014 and September 2017. This includes its main trading partner China, as well as Germany, Brazil, India, and France.
According to the report by the Institute for Science and International Security, 12 countries were found to have military links with the regime, including Angola, Cuba, and Syria. These countries either received military training from North Korea or traded military-related equipment with the hermit state.
Twenty countries were found to have aided North Korea with shipments by "re-flagging" or changing the national registration of ships.
The report pointed out that the regime seems to have mainly targeted countries with weak or non-existent export and finance controls.
The report adds that in addition to cutting all non-humanitarian-essential trade with North Korea, international pressure can be effective,... at least in the short run,... as seen with Uganda when they expelled all North Korean arms dealers back in October.
