The long-running efforts of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK, or North Korea) to develop nuclear weapons and their ballistic missile delivery systems continue to draw strong international condemnation and demands that the country immediately halt all activities related to these programmes. In 2017 North Korea conducted a sixth nuclear test explosion and 23 test launches of ballistic missiles, including new long-range missile systems.1 The tests prompted the United Nations Security Council, as well as individual states, to impose additional financial sanctions and sanctions on key sectors of the North Korean economy, and to tighten enforcement of the existing arms embargo.2 At the same time, significant difficulties remained in implementing and enforcing the sanctions, which continued to be vulnerable to circumvention by an increasingly sophisticated range of smuggling activities and deceptive practices.
