Sri Lanka imposes sanctions on North Korea

The Sri Lankan government on Friday adopted santions against the Democratic People's Rupublic of North Korea, as outlined in the UN Security Council resolution. 

The regulations were issued by the country's foreign minister Tilak Marapana. 

"All Security Council member countries are bound to implement the SC's resolutions and so, Sri Lanka made it effective locally to implement the UN sanctions on the DPRK as per the resolution," Mr Marapana was quoted by Ceylon Today as saying. 

The sanctions prevent Sri Lanka engaging in activities with North Korea, namely from receiving or providing financial services, technical training, assets, or orther assistance related to the nuclear programme.
