North Korean reported oil imports up year on year: UN data
Though reported shipments are just a fraction of probable illicit inflows
Analysis of reported oil exports to North Korea for the first seven months of 2019 shows increased shipments when compared to last year, though total exported volumes remain well short of UN-mandated restrictions.
UN Resolution 2397 requires countries to report their refined petroleum exports to the DPRK, with China and Russia the only member states currently providing data on the volumes they export to North Korea each month.
Numbers collected throughout the first seven months of the year from both countries indicate that Russia and China have upped their reported exports to North Korea this year when
