US Treasury to restrict North Korean tech access after ICBM tests

Washington, Mar 11: The US Treasury Department will announce new restrictions on North Korea’s access to technology that could help develop their weapons programs following recent tests of a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) system, a senior administration official told reporters.
“Tomorrow, the Department of Treasury will announce new actions to help prevent the DPRK from accessing foreign items and technology that enable it to advance prohibited weapons programs. There will be a range of further actions in the coming days,” the senior official said on Thursday.
The actions are meant to demonstrate clearly to North Korea that such activities have consequences that will not be accepted by the international community as normal, the senior official added. (UNI)
