Report of the Panel of Experts on North Korea Established Pursuant to Resolution 1874 (2015)

February 23, 2015

Weapon Program: 

  • Nuclear

During the period under review, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea continued to defy Security Council resolutions by persisting with its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, as demonstrated by the launch of an unprecedented number of ballistic missiles and continued activity at the facilities associated with its nuclear weapons programme. While no reports of new interdictions were submitted to the Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1718 (2006), the Panel sees no evidence that the country intends to cease prohibited activities and found widespread evidence of resilience and adaptation in the Democratic People ’s Republic of Korea’s efforts to circumvent the measures imposed by the relevant resolutions
