In addition, Pyongyang called the new UN security Council resolution a “terrorist act”. Previously, North Korea has rejected “concocted by the US and hostile forces” document as violating the sovereignty of the DPRK.

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.
