The Philippines will impound a suspected North Korean cargo vessel docked at a port northwest of Manila and eventually deport its crew under terms of the tough new United Nations sanctions in response to Pyongyang’s recent nuclear and ballistic missile tests, a presidential spokesman said Saturday.
Presidential Communications Undersecretary Manolo Quezon III said the U.N. sanctions would be applied to the 4,355-ton MV Jin Teng, which arrived Thursday at Subic Bay, a commercial port that formerly served as a U.S. naval base.
