지난해만 342톤 900 Kg 



미국 유엔 깜쪽같이 속였다  



지원단체 인물 밝히지 않아   

 

 

 

문재인 정부가 유엔의 대북제재 결의안을 어기고 석유제품 약 340톤을 북한에 보냈다고 미국의 북한 전문 매체 NK뉴스가 최근보도했다.


로이터통신도 23일  NK뉴스를 인용해 한국정부의 신고 회피 사실을 보도했다.

이것이 사실이라면 문재인 정부는 유엔 안전보장이사회의 대북 제재 결의안 제 2397호를 정면으로 위배한 것이다.


NK뉴스는 이날 '한국정부가 유엔의 룰(rule)을 어기고 북한에 대한 석유 제공을 보고하지 않았다'는 제목의 기사에서 "한국통일부에 확인한 결과 지난해 문재인 정부는 북한에 342톤 900kg 규모의 석유제품을 보냈고 통일부도 관세청 데이터를 통해 이 사실을 인정했다"고 보도했다.

통일부 관계자는 이들 석유제품 중 32.3톤은 한국으로 돌아왔고, 140톤은 이산가족상봉 행사와 철도 경협 사업을 위해 쓰였다"고 밝혔던 것으로 알려졌다.

나머지 석유제품의 용처에 대해 통일부 측은 '개성의 남북 연락 사무소 보수”를 위해 쓰였다고 답했다고 NK뉴스는 전했다.

미국은 지난해 8월 북한이 연간 받을 수 있는 석유한도를 넘어섰다고 경고했었다".


그런데도 불구하고 문재인 정부가 북한에 석유제품을 제공한 것"이라 미국과 유엔이 문제를 삼으면 문재인 정부의 입장은 매우 곤란해 진다.

문재인 정부가 석유제품 제공에 대한 구체적 내용과 수신인에 대한 정보를 유엔
제재위 룰(rule)에 따라 의도적 고의적으로 보고하지 않았다고 미국언론들은 전했다.

2017년 채택된 ‘유엔 안보리 대북제재 결의안 제2397호’에 따라 회원국들은 매 30일마다 북한으로 보내졌거나, 판매된 정제 석유의 규모와 수신인에 대한 정보를 유엔 1718제재위에 보고해야 한다.


또한 수신인은 유엔이 제재를 지목한 인물이나 단체일 수는  없다.

NK뉴스에 따르면 유엔 1718제재위 기록에 한국정부가 2018년 북한에 정제석유를 보냈다는 사실은 적혀있지 않다. NK뉴스는 이 사안에 대해 잘 아는 소식통들을 인용해, 이는 한국정부가 신고를 하지 않은 것이라고 전했다.

 한국 외교부와 통일부에 "왜 유엔의 신고 룰을 무시했는지, 그리고 유엔이 제재를 지목한 인물이나 단체에 석유제품을 보내지 않았다는 것을 확답할 수 있는지" 물었지만 외교부와 통일부는 답변을 거부했다.


한국정부가 UN제재위에 제대로 보고를 하지 않은 것은 이번 뿐만이 아니라고 밝혔다.


지난해 8월의 관세청 자료를 로이터가 분석한 결과, 유엔이 구체적으로 제재하고 있는 건설 자재들이, 100만달러 상당의 규모로 북한에 보내졌다고 전했다.

한국 외교부는 이 사안과 관련해 로이터통신에 “그것은 북한에 어떠한 ‘경제적 이득’도 주지 않기 때문에, 유엔 제재의 목적을 훼손하지 않는다고 우리는 본다”고 답했다.

NK는 북한에 ‘경제적 이득’을 주지 않는 것이 ‘유엔 안보리 대북제재 결의안 제 2397호’를 포함한 어떠한 국제제재의 면제사유에도 해당하지 않는다고 지적했다.

미 하원 외교위원회 법률 자문을 지내며 북한관련 제재안 작성을 자문한 조슈아 스탠튼 변호사는 “문재인 정부가 장기적으로 더 큰제재 위반을 하기 위해 작은 틈을 만드는 시도를 하고 있는 것으로 보인다”고 진단했다

 


북한에 얼마 만큼이 보내지고 있다는 것 보다, 이러한 선례가 만들어 지고 있다는 것이 문제

South Korea, breaching UN rules, failed to report oil shipments to North Korea

342.9 tons of petroleum products were exported to North Korea last
year, data reveals

South Korea exported over three hundred tons of petroleum products to
North Korea in 2018, data obtained by NK News shows, though failed to
report the transfers to the 1718 Sanctions Committee as required by
United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 2397.

The export of the petroleum – subject to strict UN regulations and
reporting requirements – was provided despite the U.S. warning in
September 2018 that Pyongyang had exceeded “four times the annual
quota” of allowed petroleum imports in the first eight months of 2018
alone.

“According to the Korea Customs Service data, a total of 342.9 tons of
petroleum products (HS 2710) were exported to North Korea in the year
2018,” a Ministry of Unification (MOU) spokesperson told NK News on
Monday, noting that 32.3 tons were subsequently “brought back to the
South.”

Of the exported petroleum volume, “140 tons were used for the family
reunion event and the oil used for the joint on-site survey of
railways,” the spokesperson said, leaving an unspecified amount for
“repairing and renovation work of the inter-Korean joint liaison
office in Kaesong”.

While the amounts fell well short of North Korea’s allowed import cap
of 500,000 barrels of refined petroleum products each year –
representing just 0.51% of that total allowance – South Korea failed
to report details about the transfers or recipients in the manner
required by UN rules.

“Where the Moon administration gets into trouble… is with the
requirement that it notify the 1718 Committee every 30 days of how
much oil it has sent “along with information about all the parties to
the transaction,” which can’t be (to) designated persons or entities,”
said Joshua Stanton, a lawyer and blogger who has helped Congress
draft North Korea sanctions legislation.

A chart maintained by the 1718 Committee listed no South Korean
refined petroleum exports to North Korea during 2018, Stanton pointed
out, while informed sources with knowledge of UN sanctions discussions
confirmed to NK News that Seoul declined to report the transfers to
the UN according to the 30-day reporting requirement in UNSC 2397.

Asked on multiple occasions specifically why South Korea ignored the
reporting rules and how it had been able to confirm that recipients of
petroleum were not UNSC-designated persons or entities, both the ROK
foreign ministry and MOU declined to provide a direct answer.

Instead, the two ministries insisted that the ROK had consulted with
the international community and UN sanctions committee on a
“transparent” basis, “so that inter-Korean exchanges and cooperation
projects can be carried out in accordance with the framework of
sanctions against North Korea.”

The U.S. Department of State could not comment on the issue due to an
ongoing furlough, while the 1718 Committee previously told NK News
that negotiations surrounding exemptions are confidential.

SANCTIONS PATTERN

The ROK government’s view of sanctions transparency falls short of
what is expected by UNSC resolutions in two other issue areas in 2018,
analysis by NK News suggests, suggesting that Seoul has chosen to
implement UNSC sanctions on North Korea on a selective and often
inconsistent basis.

Customs data cited by Reuters last August, for example, showed that
the ROK sent nearly one million dollars of construction equipment and
material specifically sanctioned by the UN to North Korea, in order to
renovate the Kaesong liaison office.

“It does not give any economic gain to North Korea, so we are
concluding that it does not damage the objective of the sanctions,” a
MOFA spokesperson told Reuters of its decision not to seek a UN
sanctions exemption to facilitate the transfer of sanctioned
construction equipment and material to the project site.

No exemptions exist in UNSC 2397, or any international sanctions, for
sector-prohibited goods to be transferred into North Korea in cases
when “economic gain” is not created.

Similarly, exemptions did not exist to allow a South Korean cargo
plane to transport Kim Jong Un’s gift of two tons of Songni mushrooms
to Seoul last September, which fall under the purview of HS Code 07
(vegetables), which North Korea is currently banned from exporting
under UNSC 2397.

NK News understands from the informed sources that Seoul chose neither
to seek a sanctions exemption nor was provided one by the 1718
Committee to receive the mushrooms from Kim Jong Un, with the
implication that the UNSC rules were violated as a result.

Despite the available evidence, a MOFA spokesperson said Seoul’s
actions were “in accordance with the framework of sanctions against
DPRK.”

“The ROK government believes that the exchanges… have been
contributing to achieving the purposes of the relevant UNSCRs.”

Yet the lack of effort to follow UNSC regulations surrounding the
provision of petroleum to the North, the transfer of sanctioned
construction equipment and materials to the Kaesong liaison office,
and receipt of Songni mushrooms stands in contrast to at least four
requests by Seoul since November to gain exemptions for far less
significant forms of inter-Korean cooperation.

On November 24, for example, the UNSC permitted Seoul to proceed with
a joint survey of inter-Korean railroads, while on November 30 the
UNSC approved the Ministry of National Defense (MND) to provide
supplies to the North in order to modernize an inter-Korean military
communication line.

On December 12, Seoul then begun talks with the U.S. surrounding
exemptions to allow video reunions of separated families, while on
December 25 the UNSC approved Seoul to conduct a limited inter-Korean
railroad groundbreaking ceremony the very next day.

One specialist said the inconsistencies in approach meant that “South
Korea is treading a tricky path”.

“Partly it is to do with the manifest difficulty of trying to work
with North Korea, and no doubt also because of factors internal to
South Korean government institutions,” said Christopher Green, a DPRK
specialist at the International Crisis Group.

“But it is also because international sanctions are as much about
politics as about the law.”

As a result, issues like Seoul’s decision not to seek exemptions for
projects like the Kaesong liaison office may have boiled down to a
perception that “nobody would move to block a project whose stated
purpose was facilitating inter-Korean dialogue and de-escalation, and
which would not, ultimately, lead to mass transfers of hard currency
to North Korea,” he said.

South Korea is also under increased pressure from North Korean
counterparts to disregard sanctions and speed up cooperation.

A state media editorial as recently as Monday slammed Seoul’s
“indecisive attitude” towards broadening inter-Korean engagement and
condemned its plans to seek the exemptions that would allow the
reopening of the Kaesong Industrial Complex (KIC).

“The entire nation cannot repress its disappointment over the South
Korean authorities’ indecisive attitude of walking on eggshells around
the U.S.,” that commentary, published by the outer-track Uriminzokkiri
outlet, read.

Others, however, warn of the broader ramifications of Seoul’s approach.

“Yet again, the Moon administration seems to be sliding the thin end
of the wedge into Kaesong to establish a precedent for a more
substantial, long-term practice of violating the sanctions,” said
Stanton about Seoul’s export of petroleum to North Korea in 2018.

“The amount isn’t the problem; the precedent is.”
