US warns to impose sanctions over fuel to North Korea

The United States has warned to impose sanctions on any shippers helping to get fuel to North Korea.

State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert said North Korea continues to employ tactics to evade U.N. sanctions. She said U.N. member states are required to prohibit ship-to-ship transfers of petroleum fuel to that country.

Nauert said the United States will not hesitate to impose sanctions on any individual, entity, or vessel supporting North Korea’s illicit activities, regardless of nationality. (Reuters)
