China caught 'RED HANDED' allowing oil to reach North Korea

China caught 'RED HANDED' allowing oil to reach North Korea

Trump said on Twitter Thursday that China had been "Caught RED HANDED", adding he was "very disappointed that China is allowing oil to go into North Korea".

According to industry sources, China continues to be North Korea's main source to oil, sell 520,000 tons, or 3.8 million barrels, of crude a year to its isolated neighbor, using an aging pipeline.

Trump's tweet came after a South Korean newspaper published what it said were USA spy satellite images of Chinese ships selling oil to North Korean ships.

The sanctions announcement came as Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson held talks by phone in which they discussed North Korea's nuclear program. A Reuters report described him as coming from a non-elite background unlike most of Pyongyang's senior officials-like Ri, who was educated in one of North Korea's best schools and also in Russian Federation.

On Friday the United Nations Security Council imposed new sanctions on North Korea, further shutting down its ability to raise foreign currency.

The U.N. resolution seeks to ban almost 90 percent of refined petroleum exports to North Korea by capping them at 500,000 barrels a year.

The U.S. Treasury in November also sanctioned North Korea's Maritime Administration and its transport ministry, in addition to six North Korean shipping and trading companies and 20 of their vessels, in an effort to block the rogue regime's transportation networks.

China and Russian Federation subsequently asked for more time to consider the proposal.

Ship-to-ship trade with North Korea at sea is prohibited under United Nations sanctions adopted September 11.

China has repeatedly said it is fully enforcing all resolutions against North Korea, despite suspicion in Washington, Seoul and Tokyo that loopholes still exist.

Chosuilbo, a South Korean news outlet, quoted unnamed government officials of their country, who identified the ships - seen in the satellite images - as vessels from China and North Korea, engaging in illegal trade.

"The situation you have mentioned absolutely does not exist", Ren said at a regular media briefing, without elaborating.

However, on Tuesday the South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo cited unidentified South Korean government officials as saying USA reconnaissance satellites have spotted Chinese ships transferring oil to North Korean vessels some 30 times since October in seas off China.

The State Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment on that report.
