Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has labeled the North Korean regime “Dangerous” and “Reckless” following the arrest of a man accused of working on the black market to sell missile components and coal on behalf of North Korea.

The man had been charged with two counts under an act preventing the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, police said, and with another four under legislation enforcing United Nations and Australian sanctions against North Korea.

He was arrested in the Sydney suburb of Eastwood on Saturday and was due to face court later on Sunday, police said.

Cash-strapped North Korea has come under a new round of stricter United Nations sanctions this year after pressing ahead with its missile and nuclear Programmes in defiance of international pressure.
