The US imposed sanctions on eight North Korean banks and 26 executives on Tuesday, ratcheting up pressure on the country amid increasingly bellicose exchanges with Pyongyang over its nuclear program.
“This further advances our strategy to fully isolate North Korea in order to achieve our broader objectives of a peaceful and denuclearized Korean peninsula,” US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.
Tuesday’s announcement compounded economic sanctions which the United Nations unanimously imposed on North Korea after it carried out its latest nuclear weapons test early this month.
The new sanctions target North Koreans working as representatives of North Korean banks in China, Russia, Libya and the United Arab Emirates.
All property and interest of the designated companies and individuals in the US are blocked by the sanctions, effectively freezing them out of much of the global financial system.

Curvy actress, Anita Joseph, was the topic of discussion during the week when a video that showed her twerking for actor, Charles Okocha, aka Igwe 2pac, went viral on the Internet.
A lot of people expressed misgivings about the video, saying that it did not tally with Joseph’s claims that she is a born-again Christian.
However, Anita told sunday scoop that she doesn’t see anything wrong with what she did. She said, “The video was recorded on a movie set; we’re working on something together. I am not concerned about people saying all sorts because if you do something, and it is not criticised, then it means that thing is not worthwhile. The people who liked the video are about 80 per cent while the haters are just about 20 per cent; so it means we ‘won.’ Some people said we made their day with that video, while some said their children have been laughing so hard at the video. A lot of people have said encouraging things about the video and that’s what matters. The people who don’t like it can shove it up their backsides.”

A national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has said restructuring will bring much needed balance to the country.
The former Lagos State governor, however, said he was against the split-up of the country.
Tinubu’s assertion followed repeated pronouncements by President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo that Nigeria’s unity is settled and not open to negotiation.
Tinubu, who was the keynote speaker at the annual dinner of the King’s College Old Boys’ Association, on Saturday, described Nigeria as a nation that had not sufficiently defined its governance.

The APC leader said, “We are like the bewildered couple who has got their marriage licence after a lavish wedding; yet neither of them really understands the meaning of marriage or their roles as husband and wife in it.
“Legally, they are married but functionally, their union is a crippled one. This couple will be at loggerheads until somehow they forge an agreement on what type of home they want and what are their respective duties in making that home come into existence.
