His United Nations violated its own sanctions in North Korea former UN ambassador -- says yes he also calls that reprehensible.
So what -- the -- do -- what are the agency is the ship computers and servers to North Korea's government so what's wrong with that.
What doesn't signed as anything to do a nuclear weapons and satellite launches or -- it.
Investor John Bolton joins us -- -- so what's the problem here.
Well the world intellectual property organization or -- as we call it.
Pat has shipped this computer equipment to North Korea it has no way of knowing what the north Koreans are actually going to use it for.
But North Korea says it -- update their patent office now just think about that one for a minute -- north Koreans.
Patent office said that that's a real beehive of activity white -- can't verify they can't modern -- North Korea almost any additional computer power is a big plus for a country like North Korea.
Whether it's ballistic missiles or the nuclear program for just you know your basic repression of your own citizenry it is just incredible.
Steady UN specialized agency would allow this to happen.
Well what I wasn't caught my attention was this and correct -- if I'm wrong.
Buttons number one is that we -- really told about the UN.
Yeah I can still a bit quiet I thought -- in that in that didn't make that -- and secondly it seem to be laundered that through China and head to be discovered by some Bank of America they have that was there which is sort of the host of these funds.
I was so it didn't seem like it when people -- like so laundry and things to other countries they don't tell us and our sanctions that's what I get to real suspicious.
Well I think this is very typical of North Korean behavior over the past several decades of -- But takes advantage of funding through the UN system -- -- how it does -- China and other countries.
To launder money how creative North Korea.
Has become -- evading international sanctions there's a lesson to be learned there about Iran and evading sanctions as well.
But -- case of North Korea is so egregious that for even a small UN agency like white -- to miss this point it just boggles the mind.
-- did they use it when you pass the blame on -- North Korea has served -- but I mean I can't believe why people a division of the UN is gonna say I at a higher expectation.
That they're gonna make sure that UN sanctions are upheld -- that I assign that to Buick when your own team is doing that is far more I disturbing -- expects.
The country's -- sums of sanctions to try to get around them I don't expect my own team to do this.
Well that's depends on what you think -- -- which side the U -- -- some cases but you know I give credit where it's still hear the whistle blower.
Was this -- -- union of white vote not -- management but be the staff association.
That was -- about the prospect that -- would bring disrepute on itself just as you say.
Now this is now been finally brought to the attention a member governments I think it's going to be important to see how the Obama administration.
Reacts here this is a grave breach I think of common sense if nothing else I wouldn't give.
The north Koreans pencils and Paper but let alone computer equipment no matter how small amount it is.
But that the US just canceled the slowed down because of the the missile -- -- -- in fact I think you tell me you don't agree that food should be tied to no glare of discussions de -- Iran and -- no that's.
Correct I think humanitarian assistance is something different but there is a common basic principle here and that is the monitoring of whatever goes in the North Korea.
To make sure it goes to aid its impoverished people not to allow the government to continue in power and by giving the government.
Patent office for goodness sakes get real in North Korea this computer upgrade who knows what the government will do with that and white -- can't tell.
-- Sebastien thank you --
