The Cuban Sugar Missile Crisis: UN investigators to visit Cuba over arms shipment to North Korea
Not that they will find anything of interest. The mission for these UN investigators will be to give the appearance that they are looking for something. It is all a show from a corrupt organization that elects some of the world's most vile and proficient human rights violators to its Human Rights Council. Far be it for the UN to condemn the Castro-communist dictatorship it so much admires.
What is significant about this development, however, is that the UN feels the need to put on this show. It is obvious that Cuba's arms shipment to the rogue North Korean regime -- a blatantly direct violation of UN sanctions -- is so egregious, so damning, that the UN has assembled a group of actors to put on a farcical show for the rest of world.
U.N. to send investigators to Cuba over seized N.K. ship
SEOUL, Oct. 12 (Yonhap) -- A U.N. Security Council sanctions committee will send a team of investigators to Cuba later this month to examine the case of a North Korean ship that was caught carrying weapons from the Caribbean nation, a news report said Saturday.
The 14,000-ton Chong Chon Gang ship was intercepted by Panamanian authorities in July while trying to pass through the Panama Canal with a shipment of weapons suspected to be in violation of U.N. sanctions.
North Korea and Cuba have both said that the ship was transporting obsolete weaponry, including missile parts, MiG-21 aircraft parts and 15 plane motors, to be repaired and returned to Cuba.
North Korea is under a U.N. arms embargo and a wide array of other sanctions for its repeated nuclear and ballistic missile tests.
The U.N. Security Council's North Korea Sanctions Committee plans to send the investigators to Cuba around Oct. 21 to probe details surrounding the seized cargo and the reason for its transportation to the North, according to the Washington-based Radio Free Asia.
The investigation will take place at the request of the Cuban government, it added.
