The tumultuous relationship between the United States and North Korea continues. This time, aggressions are taking the form of a series of new (and incredibly harsh) sanctions announced by the Trump Administration earlier in February, 2018.
More specifically, the sanctions aim to target the country’s shipping and trading operations, along with the vessels they employ to ship goods around the world in another in a long series of efforts to further isolate the Kim Jong Un regime from the rest of the world.
The sanctions are being described as the “heaviest sanctions ever imposed by the United States” up to this point. Kim Jong Un was incredibly quick to come out and denounce the action, but at the same time insisted that his country was open to discussions with US government officials about a wide range of topics including their nuclear program – a sign that in this case, the aggression may actually be working.
The sanctions themselves target no less than 27 different entities and 28 different vessels, operating in not only North Korea but other areas like China and Singapore. Among the shipping companies that were specifically mentioned in the sanctions include but are not limited to ones like Chonmyong Shipping Company LTD. and Korea Achim Shipping Co.
