A UN survey revealed that North Korea has made cyber attacks on financial institutions and cryptocurrency exchanges around the world, and that it has been illegally obtained more than 200 billion yen in Japanese yen. How to cut off nuclear and missile development funds remains a challenge for the international community.

This was revealed in a report compiled by a panel of experts from the United Nations Security Council, which examines the implementation of sanctions against North Korea.

The report is wary of North Korea as saying, “We have n’t done any nuclear tests or ICBM = intercontinental ballistic missile launch tests, but we ’re still planning to improve nuclear and missile development capabilities.”

In addition, it was smuggled by the “Satori” technique that transships refined petroleum products from ship to ship at sea, and the sanctions were accused of exceeding the upper limit of 500,000 barrels per year stipulated in the sanctions resolution. It is determined that it is a violation.

In addition, under the direction of the “Reconcilation Directorate,” who is in charge of the secret work, they have launched cyber attacks on financial institutions and cryptocurrency exchanges around the world. It is pointed out that there is a suspicion that it was acquired in the past and used for nuclear and missile development.

Security Council officials say that the importance of cyber attacks in North Korea's activities is increasing, making it increasingly important for countries to promote information sharing and cooperation in the field of international finance.
