EU Imposes Restrictions on North Korean Employees, Sale of Gas and Petroleum

BRUSSELS – The Council of the European Union said on Tuesday it was restricting work permits granted to North Korean nationals as well as the sale of natural gas and petroleum to the Asian country in response to Pyongyang’s controversial nuclear and ballistic missiles program.

The Council has agreed to go along with the latest sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council on Pyongyang on Sept. 11, 2017, through UNSC Resolution 2375, which bans the sale of natural gas to North Korea and the import of North Korean textiles.

“Member states will not provide new work authorizations to DPRK nationals to enter and work in their territory as they are suspected of generating revenue which is used to support the country’s illegal nuclear and ballistic missile programs,” the Council said in a statement.

As agreed by EU foreign ministers at their informal meeting in Tallinn on Sept. 7, 2017, “the Council is currently working on possible additional EU autonomous sanctions to complement and reinforce the UN Security Council sanctions,” the statement said.

The legal acts of the decision taken by the Council will be published in the Official Journal on Wednesday, when they will come into effect, the Council said.
