Reuters reveals North Korea enhanced nuclear, missile programs in 2019 in breach of sanctions

Reuters reported exclusively that North Korea continued to enhance its nuclear and ballistic missile programs last year in breach of U.N. sanctions. The country also illicitly imported refined petroleum and exported some $370 million worth of coal with the help of Chinese barges, as the United States tries to revive stalled denuclearization talks with North Korea.
