EU News 169/2016
Council of the EU
On 19 May 2016, the Council added 18 persons and one entity to the list of those subject to EU restrictive measures against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). These additional EU measures complement the sanctions regime imposed by several United Nations Security Council resolutions.
The persons subjected to restrictive measures by this Council decision are mostly high-ranked military officials involved in key bodies responsible for supporting or promoting the DPRK's nuclear-related, ballistic missile-related or other weapons of mass destruction-related programmes. The additional listed entity is involved in the development and operational implementation of ballistic-missile related or other weapons of mass destruction-related programmes. Sanctions include travel restrictions and an asset-freeze.
The decision brings the total number of people subject to EU restrictive measures to 66 and the number of entities to 42.
