A briefing on the latest report by Project Sandstone and C4ADS which details how North Korea illegally procures oil in violation of UN sanctions.
North Korea is reported to have continually broken a UN-mandated cap on its petroleum imports for at least the past six years. The latest report from RUSI and the Center for Advanced Defense Studies (C4ADS), a US-based think-tank that provides data-driven reporting, unveils some of the players behind North Korea’s illicit oil procurement networks which have enabled the country to import oil in violation of UN Security Council Resolutions.
This briefing provides a deeper insight into how our investigation was conducted and its findings.
