UK Government report says that North Korean diplomats engaging in illicit financing activities

On 25 September, Yonhap News reported that the recent UK National Risk Assessment of proliferation financing says that North Korean Embassies and diplomatic personnel are engaging in illicit financing activities to fund the country’s nuclear and other destructive weapons activities.  It is also said that the North Korean Embassy in London “may pose an inherent” risk, as not all banks in the country may be attuned to UN sanctions that restrict such activities.
