    The European Union has decided to renew and extend its list of people and entities in North Korea who are subject to restrictive measures.

    One individual and six entities were added to the list due to their involvement with the North's nuclear arms program or other weapons-related activities.

    The measures include both a visa ban and an asset freeze. The list, which currently contains 18 individuals and 12 entities, was published in the EU Official Journal on Thursday.

    The EU says "the decision also limits financing activities and trade" with Pyongyang, particularly of arms and related materials that could be used in the development of weapons of mass destruction.
