    The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is expected to be on the Council’s work programme in April. The Chairman of the Sanctions Committee, Ambassador Marcello Spatafora of Italy, will provide a briefing during Council consultations on the issue. The Committee has been largely inactive since early 2007 after deciding to await the outcome of the six-party talks on the DPRK’s nuclear programme. The briefing is unlikely to contain any new information leading to Council action.

Although resolution 1718, adopted in October 2006 after North Korea’s nuclear test, mandated a report every ninety days, because of the positive developments in 2007 the Sanctions Committee seems unlikely to have much to report.
