Accounts of the Bank for foreign trade of the DPRK frozen North Korean vessels that violated UN resolutions, denied entry to the ports of all States.
The proposal to impose new sanctions against North Korea came from the US. In Washington explained this response to launches by Pyongyang’s Intercontinental ballistic missiles.
On July 29, the DPRK confirmed the launch of a ballistic missile “And 14”. The North Korean Agency KCNA reported that the test did not pose a threat to neighboring countries, however, is “a stern warning for the United States.” July 4, Russia and China issued a joint initiative of proposing to the DPRK to declare a moratorium on nuclear tests and missile launches, and South Korea and the United States to refrain from conducting large-scale military exercises in the region.
