Daimler says it has no idea how North Korea got hold of limousines

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.

We have absolutely no idea how those vehicles were delivered to North Korea, Silke Mockert, a Daimler AG spokeswoman, said on Wednesday. For Daimler, the correct export of products in conformance with the law is a fundamental principle of responsible entrepreneurial activity.

According to Daimler, the Pullman limousines offer their passengers a superbly appointed setting for discreet meetings.

The version used by Kim is believed to be equipped with key communications and entertainment systems so that, according to a company description of the car, its occupants can remain fully in touch with the rest of the world while enjoying the luxury and comfort of their own very special place in it..
