9. Thank you. Was that so hard?

My link covered petroleum exports and a complete ban on textile imports, the combination of which will effectively cut of NK's access to hard currency. This is a very big deal.

The banking sanctions annouced a couple of days earlier are not quite the same. And yes, NK has been chronically short of fuel (one reason they have mass transit instead of cars) because they haven't had the hard currency to pay for it.

These are the first actual sanctions I can remember.
