Canada to join global effort to deter North Korean smuggling

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan said in a statement that Canada was committed to supporting sanctions created to pressure North Korea into abandoning its nuclear weapons program.

A CP-140 aircraft and 40 military personnel are assigned to a base in Kadena, Japan for the mission.

The initiative is created to counter North Korea's attempts to evade UN Security Council sanctions by providing maritime crafts that will allow the member states to monitor North Korean vessels on the high seas, in an effort to stop smuggling.

In addition, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said his country is sending a P-8 surveillance aircraft to operate with the Canadians and British at the USA base in Japan.

The UN has accused Pyongyang of trying to get around Security Council sanctions that were imposed against the rogue state for its nuclear and weapons programs.

The latest resolution from December sharply lowered limits on North Korea's refined oil imports and authorized Member States to inspect and seize ships suspected of smuggling banned items including coal and oil to and from the country.

An Australian military plane is being sent to Japan to help monitor North Korean ships. The observed transfer was the third such incident reported by Japan that month.

The expansion of the surveillance effort, which already involves the United States and Japan, comes as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in held the first inter-Korean summit in over a decade on Friday, agreeing to pursue "complete" denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
