South Korea Seizes Hong Kong Flagged Vessel For Transferring Oil To North Korea

North Korea’s nuclear missile assessments have led the UN to difficulty sanctions in opposition to the nation

Seoul:  South Korea has seized a Hong Kong-flagged vessel suspected of transferring oil to North Korea in defiance of worldwide sanctions, a overseas ministry official stated on Friday.

The vessel, Lighthouse Winmore, transferred refined petroleum merchandise to a North Korean ship in worldwide waters in late October, the official instructed Reuters.

America proposed blacklisting the Hong Kong-flagged ship to the U.N. Safety Council for circumventing sanctions slapped on North Korea for its nuclear and missile programmes, paperwork seen by Reuters this month confirmed.
