U.S., Japan, others discuss ship-to-ship transfers by DPRK

Yomiuri wrote that it learned from a GOJ source on Thursday that the United States, Japan, South Korea, Australia, and other nations held a working-level meeting in Washington at the end of February to discuss strengthened measures to monitor North Korea’s ship-to-ship transfers of petroleum and other products with other nations on the high seas. The paper speculated that the United States and Japan called for cooperation from the other participants in monitoring illicit trade involving the DPRK.


In a related development, Sankei wrote that Prime Minister Abe expressed Japan’s intention to cooperate with the international community in preventing North Korea from engaging in ship-to-ship transfers in violation of UN sanctions resolutions.
