article imageNorth Korean vessel said to be exporting weapons to Myanmar

A South Korean intelligence revealed Monday that a North Korean-cargo ship that is headed towards Myanmar is said to be carrying illicit arms and weapons.
The new U.N. resolution that is sanctioned as sort of punishment to North Korea for engaging in condemned nuclear test last month, clearly prohibits the trade and/or distribution of chemical and other highly-dangerous "weapons of mass destruction".
The intelligence official further said that the North Korean vessel, Kang Nam is moving towards the city of Yangon in Myanmar.
In the past Myanmar has said to be involve in buying weapons from North Korea, as a result Myanmar now faces an arms embargo sanctioned by the United States and the European Union.
Meanwhile Kim Jin-moo of the Korea Institute for Defense Analysis said that the Myanmar had bought guns, ammunition, artillery and other small weapons from North Korea. However, he believes that Myanmar is yet to buy missiles and other banned weapons.
In the US, President Barack Obama assured the American public that the government is prepared if ever skirmishes against North Korea will arise.
Last week it has been reported that North Korea is planning to launch a long-range missile towards the shores of Hawaii.
North Korea had also been accused, in the past of exporting missiles in Syria and Iraq.
