EU expands sanctions against North Korea to match U.N. move
The European Union on Thursday expanded trade and financial sanctions on North Korea, following up on harsh new measures imposed by the U.N. Security Council earlier this month. The extension follows a nuclear test carried out by North Korea in January. The EU's External Action Service, which oversees the bloc's policy in international affairs, said the new sanctions extended export and import bans on items that could help build up capacity of North Korea's armed forces.
