NORTH Korea has been slapped with more sanctions as punishment for the secretive regime continually pursuing its nuclear programme in defiance of existing bans.

Headed by despotic leader King Jong-Un, North Korea has been flouting existing United Nations (UN) sanctions by carrying on work on its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes.

In response the UN has slapped further restrictions on Pyongyang which affect individuals and entities.

The UN has blacklisted 39 North Korean individuals and 42 entities, who are now subject to a travel ban and asset freeze.

The US, Japan and South Korea have also issued sanctions but they are not binding, unlike the UN’s which member states are obliged to enforce.

Tensions have escalated between the reclusive regime and the rest of the world, particularly the US, after Donald Trump ramped up the rhetoric between the two nations.

He has been highly critical of Pyongyang, but seemingly backed up his threats by claiming an “armada” was heading to the Korean peninsula earlier this week.

This enraged North Korea, who flaunted what appeared to be new missiles at a parade and staged a failed missile test.

Despite Mr Trump’s ominous threat, it emerged the armada was in fact headed to Australia to complete some training.
