US warns NKorea still pressing ballistic missile development

The United States is committed to working with our worldwide partners to help limit the threat posed by North Korea's missile development efforts, disrupting North Korea's attempts to procure technologies for these programs, and promoting accountability for those entities and individuals assisting North Korea's ballistic missile program.

The US departments of state, treasury and commerce jointly issued an advisory on North Korea's ballistic missile procurement activities on Tuesday.

The electronics, chemicals and metals industries are particularly at risk of violating sanctions, even inadvertently, the advisory cautioned.

On Monday, the Justice Department announced that a British Virgin Islands-registered company pleaded guilty to money laundering in order to evade North Korea sanctions, while last week a North Korean firm contracted to exchange alcohol for South Korean sugar was found to be under USA and worldwide sanctions.

The advisory notes that individuals and entities producing or trading in these products, or providing related financial or other services must be "vigilant regarding any involvement in the transfer of sensitive technology to North Korean entities" and are "encouraged to ensure they understand fully all sanctions obligations and risks that pertain to their activities". It says companies that assist North Korea's procurement efforts risk sanctions.

The advisory highlighted that North Korean diplomats have also been found involved in such activities.

You'll notice that those are the same countries that the Pixel 4a is available in, but several are missing from the list. The Pixel 4a will be available from August 20 after months of delay caused by supply problems triggered by the pandemic.

Some goods North Korea likely imports for its ballistic missile program include heavy vehicles used in the forestry industry, which can be repurposed as transporter erector launchers, as well as steel and aluminum, according to the advisory.

"Over the past year, it has continued to test launch ballistic missiles in violation of a series of United Nations Security Council Resolutions".

The U.S. advisory contains no fresh sanctions against North Korea, but is considered unusual as it came about two months ahead of the U.S. presidential election.

On Tuesday, the State Department also announced that it was extending a travel ban for American citizens to North Korea for a third time.

"The United States is committed to working with our global partners to help limit the threat posed by North Korea's missile development efforts". He added that there were "no nuclear tests, no long-range missile tests". U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun, who doubles as the U.S. special representative for North Korea, held a phone conversation with Lee Do-hoon, Seoul's special representative for Korean Peninsula peace and security affairs, Wednesday to discuss the early resumption of dialogue with North Korea.
