Trump says 'disappointed' China allowing oil into North Korea: tweet

Asked at a regular briefing whether Chinese ships were illegally providing oil to North Korean ships, Chinese Defence Ministry spokesman Ren Guoqiang reiterated that China, including the military, strictly enforced United Nations resolutions on North Korea.

USA satellites have spotted Chinese tankers transferring oil to North Korean ships 30 times in three months - despite strict United Nations trade embargoes, according to reports.

The UN Security Council last week unanimously imposed new sanctions on North Korea for a recent intercontinental ballistic missile test, seeking to further limit its access to refined petroleum products and crude oil.

American spy satellites spotted Chinese vessels trading oil with North Korean ships in violation of worldwide sanctions in the West Sea around 30 times since the end of October, the Chosun Ilbo reported Wednesday, citing South Korean government sources.

Donald Trump on Thursday said he was "very disappointed that China is allowing oil to go into North Korea" and said such moves would prevent "a friendly solution" to the crisis over Pyongyang's nuclear program.

The satellite pictures even show the names of the ships. It is unclear what role the Chinese military has in enforcing sanctions.

A government source told the South Korean newspaper that, "We need to focus on the fact that the illicit trade started after a UN Security Council resolution in September drastically capped North Korea's imports of refined petroleum products". The country also has not been importing any iron ore, coal or lead from North Korea during the mentioned period, as the media specified.

China has denied illegally providing oil, according to Reuters. This was the second month since China has not supplied oil to North Korea. A ministry spokeswoman said Wednesday she had no information about the latest report, but said China has strictly enforced trade restrictions. "We are taking a honest and serious attitude and forceful and effective actions".
