Restrictive measures against the Democratic People's Republic of K orea - EU implementation of UNSCR 1874 (2009)

Following the test of a nuclear explosive device carried out by DPRK on 25 May 2009, the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 1874 (2009) on 12 June 2009 with a view to widening the scope of the restrictive measures imposed by UNSCR 1718 (2006).

Today the Council adopted a Common Position transposing UNSCR 1874 (2009) in robust way as requested by the European Council of 18 and 19 June 2009.

In addition to the measures needed to implement UNSCR 1874 (2009), the EU decided on autonomous measures within the scope of the UN Resolution, namely autonomous listing of items subject to export ban, autonomous listing of persons and entities subject to travel ban and asset freeze, enhanced financial vigilance and reinforced cargo inspections.

Action by the European Community is needed in order to implement certain measures.
