Fish, missiles, tanks, and trawlers: Mozambique's strange trade with North Korea
MetadataShow full item record
North Korea may be focused on a public relations drive in Pyeongchang right now, but its efforts to hoodwink the international community extends way beyond the Korean peninsula. When it comes to circumventing economic sanctions, they extend into the most unexpected places, like Maputo, the leafy port city that is Mozambique’s capital. Fishing is big business in this southern African country. North Korea has discovered that a slice of that business can be obtained with relative ease, using fishing boats that are simple to move and conceal. The trawlers represent just one area of illicit trade between the two countries.
