China Denies Knowledge of Chinese Ships Moving N. Korean Coal

China Denies Knowledge of Chinese Ships Moving N. Korean Coal

Cargo ships have been photographed docking in North Korean ports to take on coal, which has then been brought to Vietnam and Russian Federation or unloaded onto other ships mid-sea, the Wall Street Journal reports.

A UNSC sanction adopted last August bans the North from exporting coal, iron ore and other goods.

At least six Chinese ships covertly engaged in trade with North Korea in violation of sanctions imposed by the United Nations, according to satellite photographs and other intelligence gathered by USA officials, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

The paper found that the six ships are either managed or owned by Chinese companies or firms registered in Hong Kong.

All cargo ships, six in total, are all either Chinese-owned or operated, and were tracked by the US using satellite technology.

Who to blame: Earlier this week, President Donald Trump claimed Russian Federation is flaunting the United Nations sanctions and that China has been supporting the U.S.

Officials believe the ships flew under the radar by turning off their tracking systems when entering North Korean waters, and re-activating them when approaching ports in Vietnam and Russian Federation.

The Chinese-owned ship Kai Xiang was photographed appearing to load North Korean coal.

New photos suggest China may have violated United Nations sanctions by assisting North Korea with trade.

All U.N. members would have to ban the Glory Hope 1 and the other five ships from their ports in order to formally designate them as sanctions violators. What China is helping us with, Russian Federation is denting. Several of the ship-owners and managers linked to the ships have reportedly been questioned by Chinese authorities.
