EU arms embargo on North Korea

In November 2006, in order to implement the UN arms embargo on North Korea in Resolution 718, the European Union member states adopted Common Position 2006/795/CFSP. Whereas the UN embargo is limited to major conventional weapons as defined by the UN Register of Conventional Weapons, the EU embargo prohibits the supply of arms and related materiel and technology of any type, including military vehicles and paramilitary equipment.
