Prof. Julian Ku Tells Business Insider Why North Korean Restaurant Chain Violates UN Sanctions
Julian Ku, the Maurice A. Deane Distinguished Professor of Constitutional Law, commented in a Business Insider report on North Korea’s “Pyongyang” restaurant chain (named after the capital of North Korea), which has more than 100 restaurants throughout Asia.
Professor Ku explained why the restaurants are a direct violation of U.N. sanctions: “The United Nations Security Council has required any country in the world that’s a member of the United Nations to enforce sanctions on North Korea to limit its access to foreign currency and to foreign products and these are very wide-ranging sanctions and they include things like allowing them to operate joint ventures or businesses in your country.”
