Chinese trucks at North Korean trade fair, despite sanctions
The trucks are manufactured by a Chinese-government owned company based in Beijing

A photograph taken by the Russian embassy in North Korea shows Chinese-made trucks for sale at the Pyongyang Spring International Trade Fair, despite UN sanctions prohibiting the sale or transfer of vehicles to the DPRK.

UN Resolution 2397, passed in December last year, prevents member states from sending vehicles to North Korea, banning all trade codes which include cars, trucks, motorbikes, and trains.
