U.N. imposes sanctions against Pyongyang

The Security Council of the United Nations has imposed sanctions against North Korea, which involved a Taiwanese national who has been accused of helping Pyongyang evade international trading bans.

In a statement released by the Security Council on its website on Friday, the council said the Taiwanese Tsang Yung-yuan (張永源) "has coordinated North Korean coal exports with a North Korean broker operating in a third country."

In addition, Tsang "has a history of other sanctions evasion activities," the Security Council added.

Tsang was the only individual on the U.N. blacklist, which also included 21 shipping companies and 27 vessels.
