U.S. declares new shipping sanctions on North Korea

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday announced a fresh round of sanctions against North Korea in an attempt to block oil and other prohibited products from getting to the Asian nation.

“We have imposed the heaviest sanctions ever imposed,” Trump said at the conclusion of his speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference. “Hopefully, something positive can happen. We will see.” More than 50 ships and shipping companies were cited by the Treasury Department for evading existing U.S. and international sanctions.
