U.S. removes Russia's Independent Petroleum Company from N.Korea sanctions

MOSCOW, March 2 (Reuters) - The United States has removed Russia’s Independent Petroleum Company from its OFAC sanctions list over North Korea, the U.S. Treasury Department said on Monday.

Independent Petroleum Company was blacklisted in 2017 for allegedly acting as a supplier to a North Korean trading company involved in the country’s missile and weapons of mass destruction programmes. (Reporting by Maria Tsvetkova; writing by Tom Balmforth; editing by David Evans)
