China Keeps Fuel Exports to North Korea Low

China kept fuel exports to North Korea to a trickle in March and exported no corn for a third straight month to its isolated neighbor, data showed on Tuesday, as sanctions over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons and missile program continued to bite.
Official data from the General Administration of Customs showed a sixth straight month of no shipments of diesel, gasoline and fuel oil. China has traditionally been the main source of North Korea’s fuel, Reuters reported. The only oil products sent to North Korea was 3 tons of jet fuel and 55 tons of liquefied petroleum gas.
It was also the sixth month that China imported no iron ore, coal or lead from North Korea, in line with United Nations sanctions aimed at persuading Pyongyang to abandon its weapons program.
It was the third month in a row that there were no corn exports from China to North Korea. Shipments of rice were just 457 tons.
The export breakdown follows data on Monday that showed the value of China’s trade with North Korea was $155.3 million in March, down from $442 million last year and up from February’s $112 million.
