REPORT TO CONGRESS ON US SANCTIONS ON NORTH KOREA
On 14th June, the US Navy Institute News reported on a Congressional Research Service (CRS) report, ”North Korea: Legislative Basis for U.S. Economic Sanctions” of 11th June. The report details the effect of the sanctions on US-DPRK relations. It notes that restrictions on North Korea have been in place from as far back as 1950 – and the outbreak of the Korean War. It details the economic sanctions currently in place – relating to trade, aid, military supplies, access to assets and access to the US financial system – as well as those imposed by the UN. Of interest is Appendix B, which compares US and UN sanctions.
REPORT TO CONGRESS ON IRAN SANCTIONS
On 2nd March, USNI News had reported on a similar report by the CRS submitted to the US Congress on 21st February and, like the North Korea report, detailing US sanctions in place – before the announcement of withdrawal from JCPOA and the “snapback” of US sanctions. It also comments on international compliance and implementation and compares US and UN sanctions in place.
Copies of each report are found on the pages of the USNI articles.
