According to Mogherini new sanctions will include “a total ban on EU investments in the DPRK in all sectors.” She specified that as of Monday, a ban will... Еще be placed on the sale of refined petroleum products and crude oil to the DPRK and said that there will also be a “lowering the amount of personal remittances transferred to the DPRK from 15,000 Euros (17,700 USD) to 5,000 Euros (5,900 USD).” Mogherini added that ministers had agreed to “launch a demarche” aimed at countries predominantly in Asia and Africa so as to make sure that a “robust implementation of all UN Security Council resolutions is done by all UN member states.” The High Representative justified the sanctions as a process “aimed at opening that political space for negotiations that currently we do not see.
