U.S. accuses North Korea of illegally smuggling oil products

China's June trade with North Korea falls by more than half

A copy of the document obtained by NHK states that North Korean tankers have called at ports in the North at least 89 times between January and May, likely to deliver petroleum products illicitly procured via offshore ship-to-ship transfers.

"These sales and any other transfer must immediately stop since the United States believes the DPRK has breached the. refined petroleum products quota for 2018", reads the USA report to the UN that AFP has seen.

United Nations experts say that North Korea needs oil products to develop ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons, according to AFP.

The United States has insisted that tough economic sanctions will remain in place until Pyongyang scraps its military programmes and that the dismantling is independently confirmed.

Recall, is that the United States of America (USA) and North Korea (DPRK) failed to establish a joint working group on denuclearization.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who was in Brussels with Trump, held talks in North Korea last week aimed at agreeing a denuclearisation roadmap.

A senior Chinese official is striking a reassuring note about Beijing's commitment to progress in North Korea's denuclearization, after President Donald Trump accused China of interfering in talks between Pyongyang and Washington.

China's General Administration of Customs (GACC) spokesperson Huang Songping said at a press conference that exports to North Korea decreased by almost 41 percent in June, while imports from the neighbouring country fell by 92.6 percent during the same period, The Paper reports. But last month, Trump said he did not want to use the phrase "maximum pressure" any longer to describe the sanctions campaign, because the two sides were "getting along".

"Encourage countries to put decisive pressure on North Korea, including through. existing United Nations sanctions".

According to the US report to the UN, North Korea received at least 759,793 barrels of oil products between January 1 and May 30, well above the 500,000-barrel annual quota. However, it mentions one instance of a ship-to-transport exchange including a Russian-hailed ship and one case including a Belize-hailed send.

In Washington, President Donald Trump released a letter from Kim Jong Un, in which the North Korean leader voices confidence in efforts to end their standoff but called on his United States counterpart to take "practical actions" to build trust.
