The United States is reportedly stepping up sanctions against North Korea.
According to Radio Free Asia, the U.S. Treasury Department added last week the phrase "secondary sanctions risk," on its North Korea sanctions list statement.
If implemented, "secondary sanctions" would bar any entities trading with the North from doing transactions with U.S. financial institutions.
RFA said at least 310 individuals, companies and organizations could be affected.■
