New adventures for Asterix: upholding sanctions against DPRK

‘In June 2019 the Canadian Armed Forces are deploying ships and a maritime patrol aircraft, under Operation NEON, to ensure sanctions are imposed against North Korea.’

So said the Government of Canada, adding that over the next three years it will periodically deploy military ships, aircraft and personnel ‘to conduct surveillance operations to identify suspected maritime sanctions evasion activities, in particular ship-to-ship transfers of fuel and other commodities banned by the United Nations Security Council resolutions (UNSCR) [thus bolstering] the integrity of the global sanctions regime against North Korea.’

It said that the craft contributing to the operation include ‘Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship (HMCS) Regina, Naval Replenishment Unit Asterix and a CP-140 Aurora aircraft.’
