PYONGYANG, December 10. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian - North Korean Agreement on Cooperation in Preventing Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing of Living Marine Resources has entered into full force and effect, Vladimir Karakazov, head of the Pyongyang office of Russia’s Federal Fisheries Agency (Rosrybolovstvo), told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
He said that it had made it possible to block the channel of possible illegal supplies of Russian crab and other marine products. In accordance with this document, Karakazov said, Russia and North Korea inform each other through communication channels of the results of deliveries.
This practice, he said, “allows us to assess the real crab supplies to North Korea, promotes confidence building between the sides.” Since July 2013, the official noted, Russian vessels had supplied to North Korea (Rajin port) as a transit country 50 tonnes of certified live crab.
The agreement was signed on behalf of Russia by Rosrybolovstvo head Alexander Krainy. Russia has concluded similar agreements with China, Japan, South Korea and a number of other countries. They conform with the documents worked out by the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) with the aim of preserving and rational use of living marine resources, Karakazov stressed.
