US Special Advisor for Non-proliferation and Arms Control Robert Einhorn, is in Seoul to discuss sanctions against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Einhorn met on Monday with South Korean officials, and encouraged other countries to act aggressively to enforce sanctions against the DPRK and Iran.

He said the new sanctions against the DPRK will target illicit activities that provide the DPRK with hard currency which may be used to build nuclear weapons, or fund luxury goods purchases.

Robert Einhorn, US Special Advisor, said, "The United States will soon adopt and begin implementing new country-specific measures that will provide the United States with additional authorities to target entities engaged in the export or procurement of conventional arms by or for North Korea, the procurement of luxury goods for North Korea, and other illicit activities, which are often conducted by or for North Korean officials."
