China Says Imports From North Korea Fall as Sanctions Enforced

China Says Imports From North Korea Fall as Sanctions Enforced”

United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley hinted shortly after North Korea's missile launch that she would propose new sanctions on the communist regime.

U.S. and United Nations sanctions have failed to deter North Korea from pursuing its nuclear and missile programs, and on Friday, it justified its ICBM test as an exercise of its legitimate right to self-defense.

North Korea's multiple missile tests in recent months, culminating with its first-ever successful launch last week of an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching Alaska, has alarmed the global community and presented Trump's first major foreign policy test.

The so-called secondary sanctions now being considered are a way for the United States to apply targeted economic pressure on companies in countries with ties to North Korea by denying them access to the U.S. market and financial system.

But in recent weeks, Trump has fired off tweets denouncing China's trade with North Korea and cast doubt on whether Beijing was doing enough to counter Pyongyang.

US President Donald Trump claimed in a tweet this month that China-North Korea trade in the first quarter "grew nearly 40 percent".

The report linked Iran and North Korea, claiming that both states were moving toward producing the Fadj-5 Aero CRBM and KN-SS-X-9, respectively.

The North says it will not abandon its missile and military nuclear programs until the U.S. ends its hostility toward Pyongyang.

Women in the White House are paid less than their male coworkers
Perry also notes in his analysis that of the top 101 highest-paid White House employees, almost 75% of them are men. Among the 22 employees earning the top salary for a permanent White House employee-$179,000-only six are women.

It has been reported that the USA has proposed a new draft UNSC resolution for further sanctions on North Korea to China. Imports from North Korea are declining every month beginning March.

For the Chinese government, purchases of iron ore provide a way to support the regime of Kim Jong Un now that sanctions more strictly cover North Korean coal.

Mr Huang said yesterday that total trade rose 10.5 per cent to US$2.55 billion in the first six months of this year compared with the same period a year ago. However in February China said it would halt purchases until the end of the year, in compliance with Security Council resolutions over the North's nuclear program. The Security Council approved a resolution in November that exempted transactions in iron and iron ore intended "exclusively for livelihood purposes".

Since North Korea relies on Chinese imports for many of its basic requirements, maintaining exports of iron ore and other commodities helps to keep the flow of essentials from drying up, said Leonid Petrov, Korean Studies researcher at Australian National University's College of Asia and the Pacific. In view of past experience, it has taken successively more and more time to garner the support of China and Russian Federation in strengthening sanctions against the North.
