North Korea Crisis: EU Imposes New Sanctions Against Pyongyang

Mogherini, after meeting her worldwide counterparts in the sidelines of the ASEAN Regional Forum in Manila, Philippines, has chose to call the meeting, Xinhua news agency quoted the statement as saying.

In accordance with the United Nations resolution, the EU Council said in a statement released Thursday that it had added a further nine individuals, including the state-owned Foreign Trade Bank (FTB) to its sanctions list, taking the total number of blacklisted individuals to 103, plus 57 entities.

Earlier this week, the Council of the European Union broadened a sanctions list targeting North Korea in response to its latest test launches of ballistic missiles.

The EU also urged North Korea to immediately halt provocations, while calling on other related countries to seek the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula through peaceful ways.

Earlier in the day, the UP MSP issued a circular in this regard and asked all madrasas affiliated to it to comply with its orders. The order was issued by registrar of UP Madrasa Shiksha Parishad, Rahul Gupta, who said there was nothing wrong with the order.

The tit-for-tat war of words began this week after Pyongyang threatened to retaliate against Washington for new United Nations sanctions against the regime.

The DPRK military has said that its plan to strike Guam with intermediate missiles will be ready by mid-August, the official Korean Central News Agency said Thursday.

This follows the new and toughened sanctions resolution on North Korea adopted by the UN Security Council last week.

On Tuesday, Trump issued a controversial warning to the DPRK, saying that threats from the country would be met with "fire and fury like the world has never seen".
