"The existence and risk of the proliferation of nuclear material suitable for armed use on the Korean Peninsula, as well as the actions and policies of the North Korean government, continue to pose an extreme threat to national security, foreign policy and the US economy," the report said.
In this regard, U.S. President Donald Trump extended the decrees that established a national emergency in connection with the threat from the DPRK, as well as other orders imposing sanctions against Pyongyang after June 26, 2019. Restrictions are extended for a year.
Trump's decree should be made public in the Federal Register and submitted to Congress.
Earlier, the U.S. imposed financial sanctions against Russia’s non-bank credit organization “Russian financial community” due to violations of the sanctions regime against North Korea, as the U.S. Treasury Department reported.
As it was reported, Russian organization opened several accounts for the company, which belonged to the Foreign Trade Bank of North Korea.
The bank and the leader of its representation in Moscow were earlier included in the sanctions list.
The website of “Russian financial community” informed that it performs cash and settlements service of the clients and foreign exchange controls.
Earlier, the U.S. and 25 other countries accused South Korea of violating the UN sanctions, as it exceeded the provided limit by 500,000 barrels of petroleum products in 2918. The situation is the same this year – North Korea has exceeded the set limit.
