Washington expanded sanctions against North Korea

30
The US administration has expanded the sanctions list against North Korea, including two North Korean officials there, reports RIA News.




The website of the US Treasury says that the list included "the deputy head of the DPRK Defense Industry Workers Party Department, Kim Chong Sik (KIM, Jong Sik), as well as the First Vice-Chairman of the Department at the Central Committee of the DPRK, Ree Pyong Cho).

Pyongyang, despite pressure from the world community, continues to develop missile and nuclear programs, arguing that this is a threat from the United States. The last test of the Hwason-15 rocket, which, as stated, could hit the target at a distance of up to 13 thousand km, the DPRK held 29 November. The authorities of the republic said that now the armed forces were able to deliver nuclear strikes throughout the United States.

Donald Trump has repeatedly declared his readiness to take action against the DPRK. Thus, during a speech at the UN, he threatened to completely destroy the republic if it threatened the United States.

          Sanctions from the point of view of the United States are an instrument of the dictatorship of their will and aggravation of the situation with armed confrontation as the final result.

        Well, one cannot fail to see the fact that the population of all of the above countries lives in what a big ass. When the sanctions were lifted from Iran, in this country the day of the signing of the "nuclear" deal turned into a national holiday. Do you want for yourself the fate of ordinary Cubans and North Koreans? If you do not feel sorry for yourself, then at least have pity on your children and grandchildren.

      With the same success, the Yankees may prohibit the supply of dogs to the DPRK for national cuisine. They think they will manage their own dog shots. Eunwoo doesn't care about the Yankees, and this is the right approach! negative

    I feel that now the DPRK will also launch astronauts to the moon. To the Iranian lunar base. And from us, you see, soon and the sanctions will be removed. Then let's go around the world

      For several years now Western leaders have introduced more and more political sanctions against Russia and were surprised that they did not work until someone told them that nothing works in Russia without a rollback ... lol

    Trump will never risk attacking the DPRK as long as she has nuclear weapons, even potentially capable of reaching the United States. not even the most successful nuclear strike against the United States will collapse their economy. That is why they have been threatening Korea for many years, but they do not take action. Ask Saddam and Iraq, what was it like without nuclear weapons?

      And why should Trump attack the DPRK - that’s how they will slowly put pressure on Kim’s personalist regime until it collapses. The example of the Soviet Union is incomparably more powerful than the DPRK right before our eyes.

    It is a shame that ours supported the sanctions against the DPRK. It looks hypocritical: Amers cannot be forced to stop hitting the DPRK, so let's bend and, as if nothing had happened, the DPRK will kick!
    It is a shame!

    inspired ... the 3015th year of food sanctions. The grandmother in the store asks: - Do you have Norwegian salmon? - Not. - And what about Italian parmesan? - No, well, you have a memory, grandmother! laughing

    In general, it seems to me that the United States needs Eun, as the United States does Eun-woo. When there are problems within the state, an external enemy is needed, or even better, small victories over this enemy. what . Actually, we see this yes

    You wrote correctly - there are no dogs in the DPRK by the word at all !! Dogs have died out there !! But the DPRK does not deal with export of dogs for one trivial reason: "There is no money !!" So the North Koreans are holding on to anyone for what. laughing
