North Korea - Adoption of European sanctions (Brussels, 6 April 2017)


France welcomes the EU Council’s adoption of new restrictions on North Korea which strengthen and supplement UN sanctions on that country.

They include independent sectorial measures (restrictions on investments and the export of services in several areas) and independent individual measures. 41 individuals and 7 entities are now subject to sanctions.

Given the growing threat posed by North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic programs, France will continue to work resolutely with the EU to strengthen international pressure and combat the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
