Massive rally in North Korea against UN sanctions
The European Union has said that it will convene an extraordinary session next week to discuss the escalating tension with North Korea.
The list now includes 62 individual and 50 entities subject to an asset freeze and travel restrictions in the EU.
The most recent escalation was prompted by sanctions against North Korea approved by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) last week in response to July's launches of ballistic missiles by Pyongyang.
The DPRK's actions, which the statement says "gave threat to global peace and security", will block transactions in coal, iron and iron ore, ban imports of copper, nickel, silver and zinc from North Korea, as well as suspend scientific and technical cooperation and even slow the flow of earnings made by the country's citizens while overseas being sent home.
