EU de-lists 4 vessels from North Korea sanctions

The EU has de-listed 4 vessels that were previously listed on its sanctions against North Korea for being controlled or operated by sanctioned entity Ocean Maritime Management Company, after the UN determined in March that they had no connection to that company. The UN’s decision to de-list the 4 vessels from its own sanctions followed a request from China, after assurances were secured that none of the vessels would use North Korean crews, and the EU has now implemented those changes (see previous blog). The four vessels are: JH 86, Jin Tai, Jin Teng, and Grand Karo.
