Slovakia heads UN committee for sanctions against North Korea

THE SLOVAK Republic is ready to take on the delicate political task of heading the UN Security Council's sanctions committee against North Korea.

Slovakia's permanent representative to the UN, Peter Burian, will lead the committee, while the deputy chairmen will be representatives from Argentina and Qatar, the Slovak Foreign Ministry announced on October 23.

The Security Council decided on the composition of the committee based on a resolution which applies tough sanctions against North Korea for carrying out a nuclear test on October 9.

The committee will have to draw up lists of sanctioned import and export goods and technologies related to missile, nuclear, and other programs to develop weapons of mass destruction in North Korea.

It will also create a list of companies and people involved in such programs. The international community will then freeze their finances and assets and impose travel restrictions on them.
