China exported over 2000 tons of oil products to N. Korea in March: UN
Figure is lower than that provided by Chinese trade statistics
China shipped over 2000 tons of oil products to North Korea in March, according to figures from Beijing reported to the UN’s 1718 Committee, though the total is lower than that included in its monthly trade figures.
UN resolutions do not prohibit refined or crude oil shipments to North Korea, though do set quotas and reporting requirements.
Countries which export oil to the DPRK are required to report their shipments to 1718 Committee every 30 days, in line with UN Resolution 2379, and the exports are published on the group’s website.
