President Bush signed sanctions targeting North Korea, Sudan

On October 13, 2006, President George W. Bush signed two bills into law separately imposing sanctions on North Korea and Sudan in light of the former's nuclear test and reports of continued atrocities in Sudan's Darfur region. The North Korea Nonproliferation Act of 2006PDF was designed to restrict the transfer of weapons of mass destruction materials into North Korea and amended existing legislation similarly restricting Syria and Iran. It threatens sanctions such as the loss of government contracts and US export licenses to any foreign national who transports materials related to nuclear weapons or other weapons technology to the restricted countries.
