Green Pine is also responsible for approximately half of the arms and related materiel exported by the DPRK.

Green Pine specializes in the production of maritime military craft and armaments, such as submarines, military boats and missile systems, and has exported torpedoes and technical assistance to Iranian defence-related firms.

Justification: Namchongang is a DPRK trading company subordinate to the GBAE. Namchongang has been involved in the procurement of Japanese-origin vacuum pumps that were identified at a DPRK nuclear facility, as well as nuclear-related procurement associated with a German individual. It has further been involved in the purchase of aluminum tubes and other equipment specifically suitable for an uranium enrichment program from the late 1990s. Its representative is a former diplomat who served as DPRK’s representative for the IAEA inspection of the Yongbyon nuclear facilities in 2007. Namchongang’s proliferation activities are of grave concern given the DPRK’s past proliferation activities. Other information: Telephone numbers: +850-2-18111, 18222 (ext. 8573).
