North Korea sends letter to US Congress protesting US sanctions

by Itunuoluwa Adebo

North Korea’s parliament sent a letter of protest to the US. House of Representatives over its new package of tougher sanctions, reported Friday.

The report said the sanctions were condemned as a “heinous act against humanity” by the foreign affairs committee of the North’s Supreme People’s Assembly. It’s usual for Pyongyang to condemn moves to censure it by Washington, but a direct protest to Congress is a  rare occurrence.

It is not clear how the protest was conveyed since North Korea and the United States have no diplomatic relations and virtually no official channels of communication.The report, carried by the North’s Korean Central News Agency, said the letter of protest was sent Friday.

The House passed the sanctions package bill on May 4. The House overwhelmingly voted to impose new sanctions over its nuclear and ballistic missile programs. The vote, 419-1, targets North Korea’s shipping industry and use of slave labour.

It also requires that the Trump administration report to Congress within 90 days on whether North Korea should be reinstated on the government’s state sponsors of terror list. Such a designation would trigger more sanctions, including restriction on U.S. foreign assistance.
