China Caught Illegally Selling Oil To North Korea By US Satellites

China Caught Illegally Selling Oil To North Korea By US Satellites

China has commented on reports alleging that it exports oil to North Korean by saying that Beijing " completely and strictly" implements United Nations trade restrictions recently adopted against Pyongyang.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying denied the report that China is illegally selling oil to North Korea.

The Trump administration has repeatedly pressed China to crack down on its nuclear neighbor, and while China has severed a number of business and trade ties, Beijing has pushed back on other measures created to rein in North Korea.

"Caught RED HANDED - very disappointed that China is allowing oil to go into North Korea". It was reportedly the second consecutive month China didn't export diesel or gasoline to North Korea.

New sanctions imposed last week by the U.N. Security Council seek to block almost 90 percent of refined petroleum exports to North Korea.

China has been caught red-handed illegally selling oil to North Korea, thanks to US spy satellites, which captured images of the deals roughly 30 times since October.

"North Korea launched yet another intermediate range ballistic missile", U.S. Secretary of State said in the statement.

According to the South Korean newspaper, the ship can be seen connected to a Chinese vessel in satellite images taken on October 19. The country also has not been importing any iron ore, coal or lead from North Korea during the mentioned period, as the media specified.

However, the United States, South Korea and Japan have suspicions that China is not fully enforcing global sanctions, according to Reuters.

Asked at a regular briefing whether Chinese ships were illegally providing oil to North Korean ships, Chinese Defence Ministry spokesman Ren Guoqiang reiterated that China, including the military, strictly enforced United Nations resolutions.

"We urge China to end all economic ties with the DPRK, including tourism, and the provision of any oil or petroleum products, and expel all DPRK workers", he said, using the acronym for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
