The State Department talked about the "desperate attempts" of the DPRK to get funds for a nuclear program

17
The State Department considers the publication of the newspaper The New York Times about the possible supply of a number of goods from North Korea to Syria as yet another evidence of Pyongyang’s attempts to raise funds to finance its “illegal program,” reports RIA News.




The report (in The New York Times publication) is not officially published. This is a United Nations report
explained to the Fox News Channel State Department spokesman Heather Nauert.

Without going into the content of the report, (we can say that) this demonstrates how desperately North Korea is trying to find any possible way to get money for the implementation of its illegal nuclear missile program. We see that for the sake of this, North Korea has dropped to the use of slave labor, arms trade and other things that cannot be sold. That is why we (the Americans) continue our campaign aimed at exerting maximum pressure (on Pyongyang) in order to narrow and block (channels) the flow of funds to North Korea,
she said.

Nauert acknowledged that she could not yet confirm the data in the article.

No, not officially yet. But we will definitely look closely at this. We are closely watching all of North Korea’s illegal programs around the world,
she assured.

On Tuesday, The New York Times, citing a confidential report by experts of the UN Security Council on sanctions against Pyongyang, reported on the supply of acid-resistant tiles and certain “valves with thermometers” from North Korea to Syria that were allegedly used by Damascus in the production of chemical weapons. According to the newspaper, these products were delivered to the SAR in the period from 2012 to 2017 year.

    They and the Russian economy in the trash "escaped"! I heard it myself ...
    Nonsense ... Just to PR. And what really is - one can only guess. Well, or ask the Koreans. But they also will not tell the truth ...

        Don't you think that you have chosen the wrong site?
        It’s not particularly easy to drive here on a bare propaganda campaign, it’s not “Kasparov Ru” with a hard cutting out of any dissent

            Why? I don’t care where to dunk in a puddle of stupid quilted jackets.

            At Kasparov there are no quilted jackets - your audience does not allow dissent. And on this site your attempts are reminiscent of what is called "sit in a puddle" and not "dunk" someone there. 8)))))))))))
            For only in the complete absence of argumentation "arguments" are limited to insults and an attempt to place the burden of proof on the opponent.

            No "naked agitation industry". I asked a specific question

            No. At first you offended a person. Then they put forward a demand before him to prove your thesis.

            Are you saying that "the Russian economy is torn to shreds"? Take the trouble to prove it yourself. Otherwise, this is the same goitled propaganda. Without the slightest argument.

    Nauert admitted that so far she cannot confirm the data presented in the article
    It can’t confirm, but as expressed from the heart and with pathos. Especially liked
    descended to the use of slave labor, arms trade and other things that you can’t sell
    Who is she talking about? About the DPRK or the United States? Apparently speaking heads themselves do not hear what they are talking about.

      I especially liked the thesis of the "illegality" of the DPRK missile and nuclear program.

      And this is not important, the main thing is to tryndet on the text. In general, such reports are reminiscent of wishful thinking with attracted invented facts. In other words, everything is in the spirit of the United States.

    "Russian economy in shreds", version 2.0
    The greasy west breaches more often than breathes. If only to somehow declare the effectiveness of the sanctions, from which in reality there is a meager effect.

    I suggest that the UN mattresses be given an official right to invade the country and impose sanctions on a post on Facebook!
    Korea has the only defense against America, nuclear weapons! need to invest!

    to raise funds to finance his "illegal program"

    I am embarrassed to clarify whose laws are violated by the DPRK? American?
    But the Yankees have already wiped their teeth into powder, but they can’t do anything with Puffy.
