The Council of the European Union decided on 19 April 2018 to add 4 individuals from North Korea to its list of those subject to an asset freeze and travel restrictions. The four individuals were involved in deceptive financial practices which were suspected of contributing to the DPRK's nuclear-related, ballistic-missile-related or other weapons of mass destruction-related programmes.
The decision brought the total number of persons listed autonomously by the European Union to 59. In addition, the EU froze the assets of 9 entities as part of its own sanctions regime. It also transposed all relevant UN Security Council resolutions, which impose sanctions on 80 persons and 75 entities currently listed by the United Nations.
