The Wall Street Journal: International sanctions against North Korea are being subverted, U.N. panel finds

WASHINGTON—United Nations member countries are helping North Korea evade international sanctions meant to halt its nuclear-weapons program, a new U.N. report alleges, including through prohibited trade in arms and commodities and financing.

The draft report, prepared by the U.N.’s panel of experts on North Korea for the Security Council and reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, comes as the U.S. is urging the sanctions be strengthened in response to North Korea’s latest nuclear and missile tests. It reinforces longstanding U.S. complaints about shortfalls in compliance, which lead Washington to act on its own.

“Despite an increased rate of member states’ submission of national implementation reports to the Security Council, the actual implementation of the sanctions lags far behind what is necessary to achieve the core goal of denuclearization,” the panel of experts said.
