UN bars 4 North Korean ships from ports: Diplomats

New York, The UN Security Council yesterday denied international port access to four North Korean ships suspected of carrying or having transported goods banned by international sanctions targeting Pyongyang, diplomats told AFP.

The ban of the four vessels – the Ul Ji Bong 6, Rung Ra 2, Sam Jong 2 and Rye Song Gang 1 – brings the UN’s total number of blocked ships to eight.

The United States requested the most recent ban along with measures targeting ships registered in other countries.
