UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is attempting to supply arms to the Yemeni rebels, as well as to Libya and Syria. This is stated in the report of the UN Security Council Committee monitoring the implementation of sanctions against the DPRK, published on Tuesday for the final year.

“The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea continues to violate the arms embargo and is trying to supply small arms and light weapons, as well as other military assets to the Houthi rebels in Yemen, as well as to Libya and Sudan through foreign intermediaries, including in the case of the Houthi rebels – through the Syrian arms dealer Hussein al-Ali, “the document says.

The previous mid-term report of the group of experts was never published due to disagreement with him by Washington.

The new final report caused much less controversy. At the UN, this is attributed to the departure of US ambassador Nikki Haley, who actively supported the strengthening of sanctions against Pyongyang.

Russian representatives, by contrast, are in favor of a gradual easing of restrictive measures, as well as speeding up the process of humanitarian exemptions.
