U.S. adds new North Korea sanctions

The U.S. Treasury Department added new sanctions Wednesday over North Korea's related nuclear weapons program, per The Hill. The sanctions also target officials “complicit in North Korean sanctions evasion,” Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said in a statement.

The global factor: It’s not just North Korean entities targeted — Chinese and Russian “illicit actors” are implicated in these sanctions for their aid to North Korean oil, financial, and trading networks.
