The Egyptians, in turn, helped to build the only 3G mobile phone network in North Korea. "North Korea policy is a world of least-bad options". He insisted his investments in North Korea had nothing to do with his criticism.

"Egyptian authorities confiscated and destroyed the shipment in the presence of a team of experts from the 1718 committee overseeing the UNSC sanctions on North Korea", Abu-Zeid told AFP. "The South Korean puppets are deepening the disruption of the North-South relations and further escalating the danger of a nuclear war".

What began with United States intelligence spotting a rusty cargo vessel heading into the Suez Canal and alerted Egypt that its origin was North Korea, ended with the ship being seized, searched and its cargo - called the "largest seizure of ammunition headed for Pyongyang" by the UN - confiscated.
