against five North Korean officials, four companies and a state agency,
and banned imports of two weapons-making materials, in a rare unified
push by the world's powers to thwart Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions. The
sanctions, which take immediate effect and are to be carried out by all
of the U.N.'s 192 member nations, include travel bans and a freeze on
the financial assets against the officials, companies and state agency.
Nations also were instructed to refrain from supplying North Korea with
certain types of graphite and para-aramid fiber - two of the materials
used in ballistic missile parts. "It is of course significant that we
have also put individuals on the list, as this is the first time. This
shows that the sanctions are going on a higher level at this moment,"
said Fazli Corman, Turkey's deputy U.N. ambassador, who chairs the
panel.The newest sanctions were approved against:
Bureau of Atomic Energy in Pyongyang, the chief agency directing the
North's nuclear program. That includes the Yongbyon Nuclear Research
Center and its plutonium production research reactor, as well as its
fuel fabrication and reprocessing facilities.
Pyongyang-based companies - Namchongang Trading Corp., Korea Hyoksin
Trading Corp., and Korean Tangun Trading Corp. - and one Iranian-based
company, Hong Kong Electronics. Yun Ho-Jin, director of Namchongang

U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice said the United
States was pleased with the list, which required unanimous approval
among the 15 nations that make up a sanctions panel of the U.N.'s
powerhouse Security Council. China, North Korea's biggest ally and
trading partner, went along with most of the U.S. recommendations.
U.S. has launched what it calls a major effort to ensure that U.N.
Security Council Resolution 1874, which along with a previous
resolution in 2006 serves to authorize the latest sanctions, is
implemented effectively.A Pakistan court quashed convictions against former
prime minister Nawaz Sharif for plane hijacking and terrorism, clearing
the way for a full return to public office for the opposition leader.
The plane eventually landed and Musharraf, who was then
army chief of staff, seized control of the nuclear-armed
nation."Looking at the case from any angle-the charge of hijacking,
attempt to hijack or terrorism does not stand established against the
petitioner," the Supreme Court ruled on a petition filed by Sharif. The
five-judge court headed by Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani heard the
petition in June, but initially reserved judgement."The conviction and
sentence of the appellant are set aside and he is acquitted," said the
order, written in English.The "petitioner had neither used force nor
ordered its use and undisputedly no deceitful means were used."
Pakistan's attorney general Latif Khosa said there was no legal or
constitutional impediment now facing Sharif, after the court also
decided in May to overturn a ban on him holding office.
court decision in February to disqualify Sharif and his brother Shahbaz
sparked massive protests that plunged the nuclear-armed country into
turmoil, unnerved Western allies and made Sharif the most popular
"There is no log jam in his way. The
supreme court has already overturned the disqualification of Nawaz
Sharif," Khosa told reporters.
