Nearly none oil products were exported from China to North Korea in Dec - customs
Petroleumworld 01 26 2018
China exported no oil products to North Korea in December except for a tiny cargo of jet fuel, data showed on Thursday, the latest sign that Beijing has kept up pressure on its isolated neighbour amid tensions over its nuclear and missile programme.
The country sold 5 tonnes of jet fuel to North Korea, but did not send any other oil products, marking the third straight month of no diesel, gasoline or fuel oil shipments, data from the General Administration of Customs showed.
China is the main source of North Korea's fuel.
Beijing also imported no iron ore, coal or lead from North Korea in December, the third full month of the latest trade sanctions imposed by the United Nations.
