The UN Security Council agreed on a list of banned items that could be used to make nuclear, chemical and biological weapons or ballistic missiles and ordered all countries to prevent North Korea from importing or exporting the items. The Security Council resolution adopted on Oct. 14 to punish North Korea for conducting a nuclear test requires all countries to keep North Korea selling or buying any material for weapons of mass destruction or ballistic missiles. It also orders nations to freeze assets of people or businesses connected to these programs, and ban the individuals from traveling. The new council committee monitoring the sanctions drew up three separate lists of nuclear-related, chemical and biological-related, and missile-related material and equipment which the 15 council members approved. Slovakia's UN Ambassador Peter Burian, the sanctions committee chairman, said he sent a note to all 192 UN member states on Wednesday informing them that the lists had been approved and reminding them to send a report to the committee on their compliance with the sanctions by Nov. 13.
