But in August, in response to the launch of North Korea’s first intercontinental ballistic missiles, the U. Security Council banned seafood exports from the rogue state.

Others say the increasing number of fishermen washing up in Japan might be evidence of food shortages in North Korea, with fishermen pushing themselves to extremes in search of a good catch.“The food situation is getting worse, so fishing is encouraged in order to fulfill people’s needs,” said Sotetsu Ri, a North Korea expert at Ryukoku University.
“Fishing is one way to deal with the economic situation.”The Mainichi Shimbun, a left-leaning Japanese newspaper, said that the sudden spurt in “ghost ships” showed the tyranny of the North Korean regime.“The Kim administration says that its policy focus is on nuclear development and improving the lives of its citizens,” it wrote in an editorial this week.
TOKYO — Three more empty boats were found along Japan’s west coast on Thursday, a day when the snow and the rain made sure the temperature never really rose above freezing.
Two bodies reduced to skeletons were found near one, which was upturned on the shore near the city of Oga. And the third, bearing Korean writing, was caught in fishing nets near Sado Island, just off the west coast.

United Nations Command said that North Korea breached the inter-Korean armistice agreement when its border guards fired across the military demarcation line at the previous defector. North Korea and South Korea are technically still at war, with Kim’s regime saying a 1953 armistice agreement is invalid. Separately, two North Korean civilians defected south on a fishing boat Wednesday, Yonhap said, citing a Unification Ministry official.
President Donald Trump has threatened military action to prevent Kim from obtaining the ability to strike the continental U. According to the ministry, 881 North Koreans defected to South Korea in the first nine months of this year, compared with 1,418 in the whole of 2016.
The statement pledged retaliation against all countries that voted for the resolution.
