North Korea has called the U.S. seizure of a North Korean cargo ship involved in banned coal exports an “unlawful robbery” and demanded the ship to be immediately returned.
The Wise Honest ship was seized by the US regime because of suspicion it was used to violate UN sanctions. It arrived Saturday at the capital of this American Samoa.
The North Korean cargo ship, Wise Honest, was towed into the Port of Pago Pago in the late morning on Saturday, May 11, 2019, in Pago Pago, American Samoa.
Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency accused the USA of betraying the spirit of a summit agreement last June between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump.
Kim and Trump then agreed to a vague statement calling for a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula and improved bilateral ties.
However, their second meeting collapsed in February over mismatched demands in sanctions relief and disarmament.
The “Wise Honest” was detained in April 2018 as it traveled toward Indonesia and arrived in American Samoa last weekend.
