UN Security Council led by the United States recently impose multiple sanctions on Pyongyang for missile testing

Griffiths said the four ships were officially listed on October 5 "for transporting prohibited goods", stressing that this was "swift action" by the sanctions committee following the August 6 Security Council resolution that authorized port bans.

In August, the United Nations resolution banned the export of coal, seafood and iron ore from North Korea.

11 unanimously adopted a resolution to impose fresh sanctions on the DPRK over its nuclear test on September 3 in violation of previous Security Council resolutions.

The ships were reportedly the Petrel 8, Hao Fan 6, Tong San 2 and Jie Shun.

European Union members also want to blacklist more North Korean individuals and entities, a move that would freeze their assets in the bloc and ban them from entering its territory. Last month the sanctions expanded, are now forbidden the export of textiles and restrictions on the import of oil and work for the people of North Korea.

The UN Security Council, led by the United States, recently impose multiple sanctions on Pyongyang for missile testing carried out in direct defiance of cease and desist directives from the body.

Exports of coal, ores and other raw materials to China is one of the few sources of foreign currency in North Korea. The MarineTraffic website says the first three fly the flags of Comoros, Saint Kitts and Nevis, and North Korea. UNSC Resolution 2375 also banned all condensates and natural gas liquids and capped crude oil and refined petroleum products to the country, while barring authorization of new work permits for North Korean workers. The registered country of Jie Shun is not listed. "It is crucial that resolutions are fully enforced", Inigo Lambertini, Italy's deputy representative to the United Nations said.

The main economic partner of North Korea, China signed the sanctions along with Russian Federation. "Just a means. But of course, to be effective, sanctions must be applied by everybody".

However, repeated sanctions have so far failed to deter North Korea from continuing with its nuclear and missile development programmes. The latest set of sanctions were in response to Pyongyang's sixth nuclear test - the largest yet - and the firing of two missiles over Japan.
