US HAS ASKED THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL TO ORDER AN IMMEDIATE HALT TO ALL DELIVERIES OF REFINED OIL PRODUCTS TO NORTH KOREA

Malaysia Digest on 13th July reported that a confidential US report sent to UN Security Council and seen by AFP news agency, estimated that at least 759,793 barrels of oil products had been delivered to North Korea between January 1st and May 30th, well above the annual quota set at 500,000 barrels.  The illegal supplies were provided through ship-to-ship transfers at sea using North Korean tankers that have called in port at least 89 times “likely to deliver” the shipments, according to the report.  China and Russia are expected to block and, in the report, the US pointed the finger at China and Russia for continuing to sell refined petroleum products to North Korea.
