President Obama signed a new executive order Tuesday implementing sanctions against North Korea.
The order allows the U.S. government to act on economic sanctions previously agreed upon by Congress and follows some of the strongest sanctions ever imposed by the United Nations.
It’s all in response to the country’s internationally condemned nuclear and ballistic missile tests. North Korea said it conducted a nuclear test on Jan. 6 and a ballistic missile test on Feb. 7.
