How North Korea Sells Illegal Arms, Despite Sanctions

Egypt destroys anti-tank missiles from North Korea

Following cancellation of United States ' aid to Egypt, Washington administration was expressed as a disturbance of Egypt's rapprochement with North Korea and Russian Federation.

It is not clear whether North Korea was ever paid the $23 million for the weapons.

In a statement sent to AFP, spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid "categorically denied what the (Washington Post) report mentioned regarding Egypt being the destination for the shipment".

When it reached the Suez Canal, customs agents boarded the ship and found more than 24,000 North Korean rocket-propelled grenades, the newspaper reported. It was discovered that around 30,000 cold war rocket-propelled grenades had been hidden under bins of iron ore.


Referring to claim that " route of ship with anti-tank shells is corn" in Washington Post, Abu Zaid said that sanctions Committee's report does not include such information remotely or closely.

The report said a United Nations investigation found that Egypt was the original buyer of the shipment, which Egypt denies.

The United States said that "re is no progress in field of human rights and democracy" in last month, to cancel some of aid to Egypt, and a portion of ice cream plan.

Abu Zeid added that "the head of the UNSC North Korea sanctions committee has lauded Egypt's efforts". What began with United States intelligence spotting a rusty cargo vessel heading into the Suez Canal and alerted Egypt that its origin was North Korea, ended with the ship being seized, searched and its cargo - called the "largest seizure of ammunition headed for Pyongyang" by the UN - confiscated. They also said this is one event in a series that led President Donald Trump to freeze or delay nearly $300 million in military aid to Egyptover the summer. A statement from the Egyptian Embassy in Washington, D.C., said Egypt will "continue to abide by all Security Council resolutions and will always be in conformity with these resolutions as they restrain military purchases from North Korea according to The Post".
