    From Russia with Fuel: North Korean Ships May Be Undermining Sanctions

    September 21, 2017 by Reuters

    By Polina Nikolskaya MOSCOW, Sept 20 (Reuters) – At least eight North Korean ships that left Russia with a cargo of fuel this year headed for their homeland despite declaring other destinations, a ploy that U.S. officials say is often used to undermine sanctions.

    Reuters has no evidence of wrongdoing by the vessels, whose movements were recorded in Reuters ship-tracking data. Changing a ship’s destination once underway is not forbidden and it is unclear whether any of the ships unloaded fuel in North Korea.

    But U.S. officials say that changing destination mid-voyage is a hallmark of North Korean state tactics to circumvent the international trade sanctions imposed over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program.

    Changing course and the complex chain of different firms –many offshore — involved in shipments can complicate efforts to check how much fuel is supplied to North Korea and monitor compliance with a cap on fuel imports under U.N. sanctions.

    “As part of North Korea’s efforts to acquire revenue, the regime uses shipping networks to import and export goods,” U.S. Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Marshall S. Billingslea told the congressional Foreign Affairs Committee this month.

    “North Korea employs deceptive practices to conceal the true origins of these goods. Pyongyang has been found to routinely falsify a vessel’s identity and documentation.”

    VOYAGE OF THE MA DU SAN
    The eight vessels identified in the tracking data set sail from the Far Eastern Russian port of Vladivostok or nearby Nakhodka and registered China or South Korea as their destination with the Information System for State Port Control.

    After leaving Russia, they were next recorded off the North Korean ports of Kimchaek, Chongjin, Hungnam or Najin. None went on to China and most went back to Russia.

    All had a cargo of diesel, a source at the company that services vessels in Vladivostok said. Their cargo capacity ranged from 500 tonnes to 2,000 tonnes.

    One of the vessels was the Ma Du San, owned by North Korea’s Korea Kyongun Shipping Co. It took on a cargo of 545 tonnes of marine fuel at Vladivostok’s Pervaya Rechka terminal, owned by Russia’s Independent Petroleum company (IPC).

    Reuters obtained a bill of lading — a receipt for goods issued when a ship loads up — dated May 19 showing the Ma Du San’s cargo came from Khabarovskiy NPZ, a refinery owned by IPC.

    The ship set sail on May 20. Documents filed with Russia’s Information System for State Port Control stated its next destination as the Chinese port of Zhanjiang and the bill of lading showed it as Busan in South Korea.

    The Ma Du San’s next recorded location after Vladivostok was inside the perimeter of the port of Kimchaek — all the other ships were tracked only in the vicinity of ports. North Korean ships intermittently turn off their transponders, and satellites cannot track them at such times, U.S. officials say.

    Allegations outlined in two U.S. Treasury Department sanctions orders and a legal complaint filed by the U.S. government match the information Reuters obtained on the Ma Du San though the U.S. documents do not name the vessel involved.

    SANCTIONS BLACKLIST
    On June 1, the U.S. Treasury Department included IPC on its sanctions blacklist, saying it provided oil to North Korea and may have been involved in circumventing sanctions.

    On Aug. 22, the U.S. government sanctioned two more companies, both registered in Singapore — Transatlantic Partners and Velmur Management Pte. Ltd.

    The legal complaint, also filed on Aug. 22, accused the two firms of money laundering on behalf of sanctioned North Korean banks seeking to buy petroleum products, citing a bill of lading for May 19 for a cargo of diesel sold by IPC to Velmur and loaded in Vladivostok — the same date as the bill of lading for the Ma Du San.

    Andrey Serbin, who represents Transatlantic Partners, said the firm had not received payments from a sanctions-hit bank and that ownership of the fuel changed after it was loaded.

    “We sold the fuel to a Chinese company,” Serbin, who has been blacklisted by the U.S. government for “operating in the energy industry in the North Korean economy” and working to purchase fuel for delivery to North Korea, said of several shipments where the company acted as middleman.

    “There’s no way we can control them (the goods),” he said.

    Serbin did not identify the vessels Transatlantic Partners loaded fuel on to, but a source in a company that services ships in Vladivostok said the Ma Du San was among them.

    The bill of lading named the recipient of the Ma Du San’s cargo as a company called LLC Sky Shipping Limited. Reuters was unable to find any record of such a firm.

    Velmur said it could not have known where the cargo would end up and did not knowingly help anyone dodge sanctions.

    IPC did not respond to a request for comment. Its parent company, Bermuda-registered Alliance Oil Company Ltd., denied having any contractual relations with North Korean companies when U.S. sanctions were imposed on IPC.

    The U.S. Treasury and State departments declined to answer questions about Reuters’ findings.

    Russia’s foreign ministry did not respond to questions about fuel exports to North Korea but has said Russia complies with the sanctions. Russia’s customs service said it could not provide information about movement of goods across borders.

    Since the U.S. sanctions were imposed on IPC, all North Korean-flagged vessels that had been in Vladivostok port have left, according to the tracking data.

    They departed with no cargo, an employee with a shipping agent in Vladivostok said. This is confirmed by documents seen by Reuters.

    Russian supplies of oil and oil products to North Korea are much smaller than volumes shipped by China, Pyongyang’s only major ally. Beijing has acted to reduce the flows, but Russia’s trade in all goods with North Korea more than doubled in the first quarter of 2017 to $31.4 million.

    Moscow’s trade with Pyongyang is under closer scrutiny following a series of missile launches by North Korea and a test involving what it said was a hydrogen bomb.

    Trump Targets North Korea Shipping and Trade with Expanded Sanctions

    September 21, 2017 by Bloomberg


    By Margaret Talev (Bloomberg) — President Donald Trump Thursday ordered new sanctions on individuals, companies and banks doing business with North Korea as he sought to further isolate Pyongyang and increase economic pressure on the regime to curb its weapons programs.

    He also said China’s central bank is ordering its financial institutions to stop dealing with Kim Jong-Un’s regime, a crucial step by North Korea’s largest trading partner.

    It isn’t clear what impact the heightened sanctions will have on North Korea, which has been economically isolated for years. But it suggests that Trump, who earlier this week threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea if it provokes the U.S. or allies, is continuing to pursue economic and diplomatic means to address Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programs.

    Trump said the measures are intended to disrupt critical North Korean shipping and trade networks by targeting any entity that does business with the nation.

    “Foreign banks will face a clear choice: do business with the United States or facilitate trade with the lawless regime in North Korea,” Trump said. “The regime can no longer count on others to facilitate its trade and banking activities.”

    Executive Order
    Trump signed an executive order authorizing the U.S. Treasury Department to effectively cut off from the U.S. financial system any foreign individual or entity that does business with North Korea, including foreign banks. Vessels and aircraft that visit North Korea or that engage in a ship-to-ship transfer with another vessel that has visited North Korea would be banned from the U.S. for 180 days, according to a White House fact sheet.

    Trump praised China’s President Xi Jinping for a “very bold move” in acting to cut off financial ties with North Korea and said it was “somewhat unexpected.”

    Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a briefing that he informed People’s Bank of China, the nation’s central bank, of the new sanctions Thursday morning in advance of the announcement and said he had a “productive” discussion with officials at the bank.

    People’s Bank of China posted a notice earlier this month directing financial institutions to stop opening accounts for clients on UN sanctions lists and suspend financial trading and export-related credit services for those clients.

    Lunch With Allies
    Trump announced the U.S. sanctions order at the start of a luncheon meeting in New York with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, key U.S. allies in the region.

    Mnuchin earlier this month warned the U.S. may impose additional sanctions on China to further squeeze Kim’s regime.

    The United Nations Security Council this month approved another round of sanctions that seek to cut North Korea’s imports of refined petroleum products to 2 million barrels a year, ban textile exports and strengthen inspections of ships that are believed to be carrying cargo in breach of sanctions. But to avert a threatened veto by China and Russia, the action stopped short of a U.S. demand for a total oil embargo and a freeze on Kim’s assets.

    ‘Suicide Mission’
    In his speech to world leaders on Tuesday, Trump declared that “Rocket Man,” as he derisively called the North Korean leader, is on a “suicide mission” by continuing to test and develop weapons systems. The U.S. president said North Korea’s “reckless pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles threatens the entire world with unthinkable loss of human life.”

    “The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,” Trump said Tuesday.

    North Korea has been the most urgent issue before the UN following the Kim regime’s Sept. 3 test of what it claimed was a hydrogen bomb and its launching of two missiles over Japan in the past three weeks.

    Trump won Russian and Chinese support for the most recent round of international sanctions on North Korea but indirectly criticized China in his UN address for continuing to trade with the isolated nation.

    Someone (Rodman) should tell him he could be the hero of the century and lauded by world leaders if he announced willingness to reconcile with South Korea and said he wanted to be aided in installing a capitalist system

    UN would have to agree to a golden parachute and amnesty for any war crimes

    If the world leaders would agree and Kim could be convinced it was offered in good faith

    Blah blah, yeah I'm dreaming but the guy needs a way out other than glowing in the dark

    I have a problem: Where is this country getting the funds? I had a friend suggest that Korea and Iran are in cahoots. Iran builds them and Korea tests them out for cash or gold. Who knows maybe Russia and China are having their stuff checked out in Korea also.

    North Korea your one stop debugging station, we do it all and piss of those that piss you off also; its like a tooferone.

    Kim's response was to announce he may set off an h bomb in the Pacific Ocean

    I'm sure Russia, China and others will love the effect on their food supply, local ecosystems, and the possible fallout

    I think it's because "then what"

    You've got a group of blood thirsty generals who will jostle for first position until we have a new strong man to deal with

    Any action has to come with a SK reconciliation plan imo

    North Korea's foreign minister has accused US President Donald Trump of declaring war on his country and said Pyongyang had the right to shoot down US bombers.
    Ri Yong-ho said this could apply even if the warplanes were not in North Korea's airspace.
    The White House dismissed the statement as "absurd". The Pentagon warned Pyongyang to stop provocations.
    A UN spokesman said fiery talk could lead to fatal misunderstandings.


    In this video, Defense Updates analyzes WHY A POTENTIAL CONFLICT BETWEEN US AND NORTH KOREA WILL BE VERY SHORT UNLIKE THE CASE IN VIETNAM, IRAQ OR AFGHANISTAN?

    Lets get started.

    CHEMICAL WEAPONS

    North Korea is known to possess chemical weapons (CW). While assessing CW stockpiles and capabilities are difficult, the DPRK is thought to be among the world's largest possessors of chemical weapons, ranking third after the United States and Russia.

    In 2012, the South Korean Ministry of National Defense estimated that the DPRK possesses between 2,500 and 5,000 metric tons of chemical weapons.

    North Korea is believed to be capable of deploying its stockpile of chemical agents through a variety of means, including field artillery, multiple rocket launchers, FROG rockets, Scud and Nodong missiles, aircraft and unconventional means.
    This situation will warrant the use of lethal force with possible use of tactical nuclear weapons.

    ARTILLERY

    While North Korea’s massive forces are largely primitively equipped, Pyongyang possesses the capacity to launch a devastating artillery strike on the city of Seoul.

    The opponents' capitals are just 120 miles apart, with Seoul within 35 miles of the border.

    Most of the North’s artillery pieces—numbering in the thousands—are already in place camouflaged and dug in.

    North Korea’s artillery pieces include the 170 mm Koksan, which has a range of about 25 miles (40 km), using conventional projectiles.

    However, the Seoul is well within range of the Korean People’s Army rocket-assisted shells—which have a range of around 40 miles (60 km), if the guns are stationed near the border region.


    An artillery barrage will result in huge civilian casualty apart from loss in property and destruction of infrastructure.

    This scenario will again force US to use military option that can subdue the North Korean forces quickly, and this is potentially possible with use of tactical nukes.

    NUKES WITH ICBM

    North Korea tested intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) named HWASONG-14 on that has the range to hit major US cities.
    North Korea has tested this ICBM twice in July and both times the test was successful, marking a major milestone for the country. This is the first time North Korea has demonstrated the capability to strike US homeland.

    A missile is as destructive as its warhead, which is why North Korea is running missiles and nuke program in parallel.
    In total North Korea has conducted 6 nuclear tests till now.
    The first nuke test was conducted by North Korea on Oct. 8, 2006. As per the United States analysts, it had a yield of less than one kiloton of TNT.
    Blasts have become more powerful since then.
    The device tested by the North recently had a yield of more than 100 kilo tons of TNT.
    In case of a conflict, US has no option but to take out the North Korean nukes and missile sites. This is only possible with the use of lethal force, which includes precision bombs as well as tactical nukes to destroy hardened underground storage facilities.


    CONCLUSION

    The crux of the matter is that unlike Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan, a war with North Korean will be a race against time.
    Giving North Korean chance to retaliate will result in catastrophe.
    Traditional warfare methodology with boots on the ground will not be an apt option.

    Keeping this in view US will have to bring in the big weapons from the very beginning including possible use of tactical nukes.
    The war will be swift and will be fought at lightning pace.

    US cache of tactical nukes has the potential to shorten the war like what happened in World War 2.

    B61 nuke is one of the weapons that can play a major role.

    B61 is a variable yield, kiloton-range weapon. Tactical versions can be set to 0.3, 1.5, 5, 10, 45, 60, 80, or 170 kiloton explosive yield and the strategic version has a yield 340 kilotons.

    Trump's words, threatening to meet North Korea's threats with a "fire and fury like the world has never seen" were the starkest warning of a nuclear strike from any U.S. president in modern times.

    Also Trump in UN speech said, referring to the regime of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un :

    “No nation on Earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles. The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”

    The tone and language does indicate that Trump administration is open to using nukes.

    US still at war with North Korea, 1953 was just a truce - professor
    RT America



    Published on Sep 28, 2017
    US still at war with North Korea, 1953 was just a truce - professor Technically speaking, the US is still at war with North Korea, Paul Atwood, professor of American studies at the University of Massachusetts tells RT America. No peace treaty was signed at the end of the Korean War in 1953, just an armistice. Given what has happened to Libya, Iraq and others, North Korea believes that its security from the US depends on having nuclear weapons.

    U.S. Carrier Navigates Crowded Waters as North Korea Tensions Mount

    September 30, 2017 by Reuters

    [​IMG]
    Lt. Chris Williams signals an F/A-18E Super Hornet assigned to Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 27 to launch on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) in the Philippine Sea, September 20, 2017. U.S. Navy Photo

    By Greg Torode ABOARD THE USS RONALD REAGAN, South China Sea, Sept 30 (Reuters) – A s the commanders of the largest U.S. warship in Asia seek to maintain operational readiness amid protracted tensions over North Korea, they find themselves keeping one eye on China, too.

    On Saturday, as F-18 Super Hornet jet fighters roared from the decks of the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier during routine drills deep in the South China Sea, two Chinese frigates maintained a constant line-of-sight vigil.

    Officers on the Japanese-based Reagan described frequent close quarter surveillance from theships of the People’s Liberation Army Navy in international waters.

    Sometimes, they said, Chinese vessels steam in to check out the carrier en route to other destinations. Other times, Chinese frigates linger for days within the screen of U.S. ships and planes that protect the Reagan – Washington’s only carrier based outside America.

    At times, the carrier crew, to ensure safe passage, will alert their uninvited Chinese escorts, should the Reagan sharply alter course, officers said.

    “We’ve had no issues. They’ve been very professional,” said Rear Admiral Marc Dalton, commander of the Reagan’s strike group, as well as the larger battle forces of the U.S. Seventh Fleet. “We see them on a regular basis,” he said.

    DEPLOYMENT STRAINS
    As Dalton spoke, the midnight blue waters beyond the flight decks made for a crowded scene, with a U.S. and an allied Japanese destroyer also visible as the Reagan manouvered some 400 nautical miles (748 kilometers) from the Chinese coast. It provided a window into the strains of increased deployments and exercises by regional militaries, in part as they respond to the threat posed by Pyongyang’s pursuit of nuclear and missile programs.

    North Korea has staged an apparent hydrogen bomb test and fired two ballistic missiles over Japan in recent weeks.

    The situation has unfolded as U.S. naval chiefs review operations to draw lessons from four significant accidents within the U.S. Pacific Fleet this year.

    A report this month by the U.S. Government Accountability Office highlighted a host of training and maintenance problems as the navy strove to expand overseas deployments and improve operational readiness.

    Dalton will soon lead the carrier to a port call in Chinese-ruled Hong Kong – the first such visit in three years after a stop by another carrier was denied in 2016.

    China, which claims much of the disputed South China Sea, has long objected to U.S. military operations off its coasts, even in areas Washington insists are free to international passage.

    DOMINANT PRESENCE
    Routinely carrying between 60-70 aircraft on board, the carrier sends between 80-100 sorties daily – the core of a dominant U.S. military presence in Asia that analysts believe China could still take years to supplant.

    In recent months, the 100,000-ton Reagan has exercised with allied Australian ships as well as Japanese forces.

    The South Korean defense ministry has announced it will exercise with the Reagan strike group in October.

    Rear Admiral Dalton acknowledged the challenges and top-level reviews but insisted the task force was long used to keeping itself in full readiness.

    “As a forward deployed force. . . we are already where we need to be to execute our missions all the time,” he said.

    He did not detail any specific North Korean contingencies but described Pyongyang’s missile tests and nuclear program as a “growing and concerning danger.”

    “The U.S. has been very clear about leveraging all options in order to get North Korea to change its path,” he said.

    TAURUS KEPD 350 :MISSILE THAT CAN TAKE OUT NORTH KOREAN MISSILE & NUKES SITES IN LESS THAN 15 MINS
    Defense Updates



    Published on Oct 8, 2017
    INTRODUCTION:


    Tensions between Seoul and Pyongyang have risen in the recent years amid North Korea's nuclear tests and the launching of ballistic missiles, conducted in violation of the UN Security Council’s resolutions.

    During his recent meeting with South Korean top military officials, President Moon called for the enhancement of defense readiness, according to Yonhap news agency.
    Seoul will increase military spending to 2.9 % of GDP.

    The country's leader also stressed the importance of the economy and defense for national well being.


    But one important decision was already taken by South Korea last year; it was to acquire a potent precision strike weapon.

    In this video, Defense Updates looks at TAURUS KEPD 350 that can be used by South Korea to neutralize North Korean missile and nuke sites in less than 15 mins.

    Let us go into the details.

    OVERVIEW

    Taurus KEPD 350 is a German/Swedish air-launched cruise missile, manufactured by Taurus Systems and used by Germany, Spain and South Korea.

    Taurus Systems is a partnership between MBDA Deutschland and Saab Bofors Dynamics.


    NAVIGATION & TARGET DETECTION:


    Mission planners program the missile with the target and planned ground path. Then the missile uses a low terrain-hugging flight path guided by inertial navigation system (INS), Image Based Navigation (IBN), Terrain Referenced Navigation (TRN), and GPS to get to the proximity of the target, although it is capable of navigating over long distances without GPS support.

    Once close to the target the missile commences a climb maneuver to an altitude intended to achieve the best probability of target acquisition and penetration.

    At this point, the missile attempts to match camera image with the planned 3D target model.


    This robust navigation & target detection capability of KEPD 350 will enable the missile to hit remote targets in North Korea.

    RANGE/ SPEED /POWER:

    The missile has an official range in excess of 500 km (300 mi). It is powered by a turbofan engine, which enables it to travel at Mach 0.8–0.9 or about 1000 km/hr.
    Tornado, Eurofighter Typhoon, Gripen, F/A-18, and South Korean F-15K aircraft can carry it.

    Pyongyang is about 200km from the border; hence even if the missile is fired from within South Korean airspace, it will take less than 15 min to reach its target.


    The double 500-kilogram (1,100 lb) warhead, called Mephisto (Multi-Effect Penetrator Highly Sophisticated and Target Optimized).

    It features an initial penetrating charge to clear soil or enter a bunker, then a variable delay fuse to control detonation of the main warhead. The missile weighs about 1,400 kg (3,100 lb) and has a maximum body diameter of 1 metre (3.3 ft).

    FEATURES

    1. The missile is made of modular sections, which can be configured based on the individual missions. Its electronic systems are also modular.

    2. The Taurus missile is suitable for day and night and all weather deployment.

    3. It has stealth characteristics and terrain masking features for survivability. The missile also includes counter measures as a self-defense mechanism

    4. Highly accurate, making it capable of undertaking precision strike missions

    REJECTION OF AGM-158 JASSM:

    South Korea initially wanted to acquire Lockheed Martin's AGM-158 JASSM but Washington rejected this request.


    The speculated reasons for the US rejection of the JASSM deal with South Korea vary. Primarily, the United States was reluctant to deal with South Korea because of export restrictions on highly capable delivery systems, as outlined by the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR).


    AQUIRING Taurus KEPD & CONCLUSION

    South Korea’s Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) signed the deal in November 2013 for 170 KEPD 350 missiles. Taurus Systems opened an office in Seoul to handle various acquisition tasks and support technology-transfer and joint development of the next cruise missile.

    The office was the company's first outside of Germany, and the KEPD 350 is the first European missile to be integrated onto a Korean fighter aircraft.

    In October 2016, South Korea announced it would acquire a further 90 Taurus missiles, in addition to the 170 previously ordered, in response to North Korean nuclear and missile provocations.

    On 12 December 2016, the first 40 Taurus KEPD 350K missiles were delivered to the Republic of Korea Air Force, which began deployment for combat use on 22 December 2016.


    Most of the North’s weapons of mass destruction production units and storage facilities are located in the mountainous areas near the Russian and Chinese borders. Due to distance, such a location provides protection from US and South Korean artillery and short- to mid-range missiles.

    With Taurus KEPD 350K , South Korea also has way to take out these positions. It has about 59 F-15K, which can effectively launch this missile

    U.N. Imposes Global Ban for Ships Caught Carrying North Korean Contraband

    October 10, 2017 by Reuters

    By Michelle Nichols UNITED NATIONS, Oct 10 (Reuters) – The United Nations Security Council has banned four ships from ports globally for carrying coal from North Korea, including one vessel that also had ammunition, but the United States postponed a bid to blacklist four others pending further investigation.

    The vessels are the first to be designated under stepped-up sanctions imposed on North Korea by the 15-member council in August and September over Pyongyang’s sixth and largest nuclear test and two long-range ballistic missile launches.

    The Security Council North Korea sanctions committee, which operates by consensus, agreed at the request of the United States, to blacklist the ships on Oct. 3 for “transporting prohibited items from the DPRK” (North Korea), according to documents seen by Reuters on Tuesday.

    A U.N. diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the four blacklisted ships and the four vessels still being investigated had been linked to illicit trade in North Korean coal. In November last year, the Security Council capped North Korean coal exports and then in August imposed a complete ban.

    The 193 U.N. member states are now required to prohibit port entry to the Comoros-flagged Petrel 8, St. Kitts and Nevis-flagged Hao Fan 6, North Korean-flagged Tong San 2 and Cambodia-flagged Jie Shun. Entry is only allowed in case of emergency or if the vessel is returning to its home port.

    The Jie Shun was intercepted by Egypt on Aug. 11, 2016, carrying 30,000 rocket propelled grenades in wooden crates concealed under about 2,300 tonnes of iron ore, according to U.N. sanctions monitors.

    It was “the largest interdicted ammunition consignment in the history of sanctions against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea,” the independent sanctions monitors told the Security Council in their annual report in February.

    The ship had left the North Korean port of Haeju on July 23, 2016, and was interdicted in Egyptian territorial waters south of the Suez Canal, the experts said.

    North Korea is under a U.N. arms embargo and the Security Council has banned trade in exports such as coal, textiles, seafood, iron and other minerals to choke funding for Pyongyang’s missile and nuclear programs.

    In an Oct. 3 note to the Security Council’s North Korea sanctions committee, seen by Reuters, the United States said it was withdrawing four ships it had proposed for listing – the South Korean-flagged Xin Shen Hai, the Palau-flagged East Glory 7, the Panama-flagged Kai Xiang and Cheng Hong.

    “These four ships require further study with key parties and we will revert to the committee once that process is completed,” the U.S. mission to the United Nations wrote.

    A ninth ship, the Fiji-flagged Toyo Maru, had been proposed for listing in an annex to the initial U.S. draft of a resolution adopted by the Security Council on Sept. 11. It was not clear if the United States still planned to put the ship forward for designation.

    The U.N. Security Council has unanimously adopted nine sanctions resolutions on North Korea since 2006. (Reporting by Michelle Nichols; editing by Grant McCool and Tom Brown)
