The UN bans 4 ships from global ports for breaching anti-NKorea sanctions

The four ships were found transporting prohibited goods banned under the sanctions tightened against North Korea last month, after its sixth nuclear test and firing of two missiles over Japan. In addition to banning North Korean exports of coal, seafood and iron ore, the sanctions were expanded to include textiles and a cap on oil imports. All global ports must therefore deny access to four vessels: Petrel 8 registered in Comoros, Hao Fan 6 in Saint Kitts and Nevis, and Tong San 2 in North Korea. The registered country of Jie Shun is not listed.

    I wonder if N. Korea will sit and wait til its supplies are diminished and its army starving and a sitting duck or whether it will do something while it can. Would appreciate some insight on that.

    The owners will repaint them, rename them, re-flag them, etc. This is not effective action. They should have been seized, which is fully in accord with international law.
