SEOUL, South Korea— A senior U.S. envoy in charge of implementing sanctions met Monday with South Korean officials to discuss new financial penalties on North Korea.

The trip by Robert Einhorn, the State Department's special adviser for nonproliferation and arms control, comes two weeks after Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton announced that the U.S. would impose new financial sanctions on North Korea.

Clinton said the new penalties would target the sale and purchase of arms and related goods used to fund the communist regime's nuclear activities, and the acquisition of luxury items to reward its elite. The details of how and when the sanctions would be carried out have not been released.

Officials also said the sanctions are part of measures designed to encourage North Korea to stop its pattern of provocations.
