EU extends sanctions against North Korea

The European Council on Monday imposed new sanctions on North Korea.

The measures include further restrictions on raw material transactions, a ban on the export of new helicopters and vessels to North Korea, a prohibition of a North Korean diplomatic mission and a North Korean diplomat having more than one bank account in the EU, and restrictions on the use of real estate by North Korea in the EU.

The same day, officials from the US, Japan, and South Korea met in Washington to discuss potential ways to cut off funding for North Korea's nuclear weapons program.
