Kwangmyongsong foreign sourced items [page 27 of the report]
57. Debris from the 7 February 2016 rocket contained several foreign-sourced commercial items, including components similar to those from the 2012 Unha-3 rocket debris.64 These include a camera electromagnetic interference (EMI) filter, ball bearings and pressure transmitters.
58. The ball bearings and engraved Cyrillic characters were identical to those from the 2012 Unha-3. Based upon the serial number and manufacturer of the camera EMI filter, the Panel contacted the Chinese manufacturer, Beijing East Exhibition High-Tech Technology Co. Ltd., for the procurement route. The Panel has not received a reply.
59. The pressure transmitters that were manufactured in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland were the same model as those retrieved from the 2012 Unha-3 (see figure 16), but this time had gone through other intermediaries than the company based in Taiwan Province of China as reported on by the Panel in the 2006 and 2010 acquisition.65 In that case, they were sold by the manufacturers distributor in China to a Beijing-based company, which sold them on to Beijing Xinjianteng Century Technical Technology. This company was unable to provide the identity of the purchaser and indicated that the pressure transmitters had been sold in an electronics market.
60. That case demonstrates the continuing critical importance of high-end, foreign-sourced components in manufacturing the Unha-3, and the ability of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea to diversify its procurement channels, even for the same components. Member States should rigorously implement the now legally binding catch-all provision for items which could contribute to the countrys nuclear or ballistic missile programmes (paragraph 27 of resolution 2270 (2016)).
Now we know why China didn’t take him out years ago. And they won’t do it now, either.
Wow. Some electronics came from China
I would hope that those electronics include remote control capability for a guy sitting in his cube somewhere on Hainan Island to be able to guide the missile with a nuke or BW warhead back to where it was launched. As Elvis used to sing, “..return to sender.”
Correct. And it is naive to assume they will. They are just jerking us around again, like they did to Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama.
Nor will they EVER receive a reply. This is CHINA we are dealing with, afterall.
