BRUSSELS (AP) - The European Union has added several measures to its North Korea sanctions list because of the regime’s continued nuclear and missile testing programs.

The EU started imposing restrictive measures on Pyongyang in 2006 in line with U.N sanctions over North Korea’s testing and has steadily expanded the list.

On Friday, the EU announced it has banned any aircraft coming from North Korea or operated by a carrier there from entering or using EU territory. The same applies to North Korean ships. The 28-nation EU also slapped further financial sanctions on Pyongyang, including bans on most money transfers and more investment restrictions.

Last week, the EU brought the number of North Koreans hit by EU sanctions to 66 individuals and 42 entities, which are often companies or organizations.
