Kim Jong-un is using stretch limousines despite UN ban on sale of luxury goods
The parent company of Mercedes-Benz has said it has no idea how the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, got hold of armoured limousines manufactured by the German company and said it had no business dealings with the UN-sanctioned country.
Kim has raised eyebrows by using stretch limousines manufactured by Stuttgart-based Daimler AG at high-profile summits, including his meeting this week with Vladimir Putin and both of his earlier summits with Donald Trump.
The sale of luxury goods, including limousines, is banned under UN sanctions intended to put pressure on North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons.
Kim nevertheless had two limos waiting for him at Vladivostok station a Mercedes Maybach S600 Pullman Guard and a Mercedes Maybach S62. He is believed to have also used the S600 Pullman Guard for his summits with the US president in Singapore in June last year and in Hanoi in February.
