South Korea is reviewing a decision to provide marine fuel to North Korea’s Mangyongbong ferry at Mukho Port in Donghae, South Korea.
The ferry transported more than 100 North Korean artists to South Korea for performances at the Pyeongchang Olympics.
“We will closely discuss with the United States and other related nations the matter of providing convenience to the Mangyongbong ferry so that no problem regarding sanctions would occur," Seoul's Unification Ministry spokesman Baik Tae-hyun told Reuters.
According to him, North Korea requested the South to provide fuel to the 9,700 dwt vessel.
The development has triggered debate in the South as conservatives see the North Korean move as a manoeuvre to use the Olympics to ease pressure against the country.
Offering permission for the Mangyongbong ferry to dock is already an exception to the sanctions imposed on North Korea.
