북한, 추가제재 대비 석유 100만톤 비축 추진
North Korea reportedly set a goal to store away some one million tons of oil in April… in preparation for international sanctions over Pyongyang’s continued missile launches.
According to the Japanese newspaper… Tokyo Shimbun on Saturday… the amount is equivalent to two-thirds of the crude oil and petroleum products North Korea imports on a yearly basis.
The newspaper added that leader Kim Jong-un made the decision at a congress of North Korea’s ruling Workers’ Party.
After the decision was made,… the paper reports that gasoline prices soared in Pyongyang… due to the regime’s restriction of oil supplies to the market.
