The United Nations Imposes Sanctions on North Korea
UN sanctions on North Korea
The UN Security Council unanimously imposed another round of sanctions on North Korea on March 3, 2016, after the country launched a rocket that put a satellite into orbit in February and conducted a nuclear test in January, which sparked a magnitude 5.1 earthquake. The new sanctions call for inspections of all cargo entering and leaving the country, a ban on the import of luxury watches, snowmobiles and Jet Skis, which are favored by Kim Jong-un and his cronies, and increasing the number of people under sanctions.
