Having regard to Council Decision (CFSP) 2016/849 of 27 May 2016 concerning restrictive measures against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and repealing Decision 2013/183/CFSP (1), and in particular Article 33 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal of the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy,

Whereas:

(1)

On 5 June 2017, the UNSC Committee established pursuant to United Nations Security Council Resolution 1718 (2006) amended the entries for two entities subject to restrictive measures.
