UN experts: North Korea flouts UN sanctions earning millions

UNITED NATIONS - North Korea is flouting UN sanctions on oil and gas, engaging in prohibited ballistic missile cooperation with Syria and Myanmar, and illegally exporting commodities that brought in nearly $200 million in just nine months last year, according to UN experts.


The experts said Pyongyang is still able to access the global financial system through "deceptive practices combined with critical deficiencies in the implementation of financial sanctions."


And it continues to engage in "widespread conventional arms deals and cyber operations to steal military secrets," the panel said.


The experts report to the UN Security Council, obtained Friday by The Associated Press, said North Korean diplomats "continue to play a key role in the country's prohibited programs."
