The United Nations has banned four ships to go to any world port for violations imposed on North Korea sanctions. "This is a decision rather quick and decisive of the Committee" after the resolutions adopted in recent months against North Korea, welcomed Hugh Griffiths.

Contrarily, last week diplomats accused the United States of putting in place sanctions which could "destroy modern civilization".

The UN Security Council expanded sanctions on North Korea last month in response to Pyongyang's sixth and largest nuclear test yet.

According to a source close to the dossier, the four vessels covered by the decision have the names Petrel 8, Hao Fan 6, Tong San 2 and Jie Shun.

According to a source, the listed ships were the Petrel 8, Hao Fan 6, Tong San 2 and Jie Shun.

Mr Griffiths, speaking after the meeting on the enforcement of sanctions on North Korea, said the ships were found "transporting prohibited goods".

In August, the United Nations adopted a resolution prohibiting North Korea from exporting coal, seafood and iron ore.

Last month, the 15-member council further adopted a resolution on September 11, extending bans to include North Korea's textile exports.

As agreed by EU Foreign Ministers at their informal meeting in Tallinn on September 7, 2017, "the Council is now working on possible additional EU autonomous sanctions to complement and reinforce the UN Security Council sanctions", the statement said. According to estimates, North Korea exports about $ 3 billion annually, the sanctions may trim $ 1 billion from this trade. Prohibitions on authorizing new permits to North Korean workers to work overseas are also in place. According to the MarineTraffic website, the first three fly the flags of Comoros, Saint Kitts and Nevis, and North Korea. The Cambodia-flagged bulk freighter Jie Shun was spotted on October 3 in the Bohai Sea.

North Korea's main economic partner China has signed up to the measures, along with Russian Federation.

However, repeated sanctions have so far failed to deter North Korea from continuing with its nuclear and missile development programmes.
