​We are working with our international partners to ensure that all existing UN Security Council measures in respect of DPRK are fully implemented. In addition, the UN Panel of Experts is mandated to gather, examine and analyse information provided by States on their implementation of the measures, as well as information on incidents of non-compliance. A number of individuals, entities and vessels have been designated at the UN for activities which are prohibited by relevant Security Council resolutions or the evasion of sanctions.
