WASHINGTON – Today, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) designated a North Korean individual operating from Vietnam, Kim Su Il, for his ties to the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK).
Kim Su Il is also an employee of the Munitions Industry Department (MID); a WPK subordinate that is United Nations (UN)- and U.S.-designated for its involvement in key aspects of North Korea’s missile program, which is subject to a range of U.S. sanctions restrictions.
This action reflects continued enforcement of UN and U.S. sanctions. 

“Treasury continues to enforce existing sanctions against those who violate U.N. Security Council resolutions (UNSCRs) and evade U.S. sanctions on North Korea’s unlawful nuclear & ballistic missile programs,”
said Sigal Mandelker, Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence.  “Kim Su Il has violated UNSCRs and supports North Korea’s weapons program.”
OFAC designated Kim Su Il, a trading company official who works on behalf of the MID in Vietnam, pursuant to E.O. 13687 for being an official of the WPK.  As of early 2019, Kim Su Il was responsible for exporting anthracite coal, titanium ore concentrate,
and other North Korean domestic products; importing and exporting various other goods, including raw materials, to and from North Korea; and ship chartering.  This trade activity earned foreign currency for the North Korean regime.
Kim Su Il is also responsible for exporting Vietnamese products to China, North Korea, and other countries.  Kim Su Il was assigned to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in 2016 to perform economic, trading, mining, and shipping activities associated with the MID’s business activities.
