The United States is sanctioning Dandong Zhensheng Trade pursuant to the Iran, North Korea, and Syria Nonproliferation Act (INKSNA) on February 25 2020;
According to the State Department, this company was targeted in accordance with US measures to try to prevent the transfer of technologies which could contribute to the development of nuclear, chemical, or bacteriological weapons or their delivery systems to Iran, North Korea and Syria. That legislation stepped into force in January 1999 and was last modified to include North Korea in 2006;
