On September 26, 2017, Steptoe published an advisory on the newest UN and US sanctions on North Korea. As tensions between the United States and North Korea continue to escalate – and President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un trade increasingly harsh barbs – the United Nations, United States, and other countries continue to impose tough sanctions against North Korea. The advisory reviews UN Security Council Resolution 2375, which was adopted on September 11, and Executive Order 13810, which President Trump signed on September 20. As a result of these and other recent activities by the UN Security Council and the US, such as a complete suspension of immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the US by North Korean nationals, North Korea is now subject to more stringent sanctions than any other country. Together, these actions have widespread impacts on global trade with North Korea.
