US Ambassador Joseph Yun will visit Myanmar this week. He tries to convince long-standing military partner of Pyongyang to join the US efforts to suppress the nuclear efforts of Kim Jong-UN.
The trip symbolizes the key tactics from the trump, to cut off income for North Korea, no matter how small or obscure source. Yuna's first stop was in Singapore for negotiation, dialogue on cooperation in northeast Asia, the multilateral forum for discussing security issues. But maybe that was the ulterior motive in the choice of destination. In recent years, the Singapore charged that North Korea evades sanctions. According to the Department of the Treasury of the United States, before the election in 2015, the military junta that previously ruled Myanmar, was considered one of the leading buyers of arms to North Korea. The funds in turn help Finance their own programmes of weapons of Pyongyang and lavish lifestyle of the elite of North Korea.
Despite the fact that the Myanmar armed forces no longer have full power, they still wield considerable influence, and in recent years he is under close observation of the relationship of Myanmar with North Korea.
The reduction of flows of illegal income of North Korea is becoming a more important point after North Korea called its first successful Intercontinental ballistic missile test. U.S. Secretary of state Rex Tillerson has redoubled US efforts to prosecute countries that violate international law in their relations with Pyongyang.
