North Korea’s Kim Jong Un (L) is punishing officials for smuggling supplies to the regime’s top medical school, according to a South Korean press report.

A North Korean university could be in trouble after trying to secretly procure South Korean supplies and the nation’s leader, Kim Jong Un, expressed anger over the state-banned activity.

South Korean newspaper Donga Ilbo reported Tuesday that Pyongyang Medical University could face “serious consequences” after North Korean authorities said the institution was attempting to procure supplies via a state-sanctioned trading company.

Pyongyang Medical University came under heavy criticism from the North Korean leader during Sunday’s expanded meeting of the politburo of the Korean Workers’ Party.

KCNA reported Kim had said the university “committed serious criminal acts,” and that the “irresponsibility and extreme negligence” of security agencies contributed to “anti-socialist activity.” The specific crimes were not mentioned in state media.

According to the Donga Ilbo, the university’s smuggling in of South Korean supplies was brought to light during border inspections in August. Customs officials of the North Korean city of Sinuiju conducted an investigation, and trading firms have been dissolved as the state metes out “heavy punishment,” the newspaper’s sources said.

South Korean representatives of aid groups who spoke on the condition of anonymity told the Donga North Korean trading firms face serious pressure to meet demands. Some firms under pressure smuggle in South Korean supplies while passing them off as Chinese goods, they said.

North Korea is heavily reliant on China for trade, and Beijing and Moscow are coming under international scrutiny after a statement from the United Nations.

German U.N. Ambassador Christoph Heusgen, chairman of the U.N. North Korea sanctions committee, said Tuesday that China and Russia are interfering with monitors of North Korean imports.

China and Russia have reported their refined petroleum exports to North Korea in tons rather than barrels, making it difficult for the committee to determine whether a sanctions limit had been reached, the Yomiuri Shimbun reported.

North Korea may have imported up to 1.6 million barrels of refined petroleum from January to May, according to an interim report from the U.N. The U.N. prohibits most refined petroleum exports to North Korea, capping them at 500,000 barrels a year.

  1. Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was
    wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives
    for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could

Powered by Shopify Makeup Revolution, Loose Baking Powder, Powder, Banana Deep, 32g Overall I think this powder is a wonderful dupe for the Ben Nye banana powder as ben nye cost a lot of penny. This one is amazing value for money for how much you get in the bottle. Translucent powder is a colorless setting powder that can be used on many skin tones. It helps to set makeup and control shine, but it doesn’t have the yellow tint that banana powder has. TIP: To make this powder more friendly on my skin tone, I’ve been mixing my setting powder; the Black Opal Deluxe finishing powder in to tone it down a bit. Choosing the right setting powder shade can be tricky. If the shade you choose is too light as compared to your foundation, you will have a ghostly look to your makeup. If it’s too dark, it may create streaks in your foundation. When you’re trying to find the right shade, it’s often advisable to choose the same brand as your foundation. This way, you can match the colors exactly. If you have the opportunity, ask a makeup consultant to help select the shade for both your foundation and your setting powder, so you can ensure you get the right one.

  4. The Jaguar XF Sportbrake has a lot going for it, especially for buyers who don’t want their car to be over-burdened with tech. The infotainment has recently been updated, (just be wary that the switchgear can be a bit fiddly) and the engine line-up has also been refreshed. Dynamically it’s a hoot, though those engines aren’t on quite on par with rivals. And no, they still don’t do a V8. Shame… Audi never sold the third-generation S6 Avant in the U.S., which led some people to build their own. One of those S6 Avant clones is now up for sale on Cars & Bids. Inside, there is Magma Red leather with diamond-stitched details on the seats. The rest of the cabin is black, including suede material on the headliner and pillars. The gearshift and door handles come the European RS4. The 2022 Audi RS6 Avant for sale at Audi Morton Grove in Illinois – close to Lincoln Park, Glenview, Highland Park, Deerfield, and Glencoe – is the luxury wagon that puts on a show.
    Rear:Â 20X10 ETÂ 45 Despite its manifest awesomeness, early critical reaction usually didn’t go the AMG’s way. Reviewers agreed that the W204 was a huge improvement over its predecessor, but against the sublime M3 it was often found slightly lacking when it came to the sort of apex-fondling ten-tenths performance that turns roadtesters truly frothy. Yet as an all-round proposition the brawnier and rortier Mercedes was close to unbeatable, especially given its low-tenths civility thanks to its smooth shifting autobox, pliant ride and instant go.
