China reduces energy exports to North Korea

China announced Saturday limitations on its exports of refined petroleum products to North Korea from Oct. 1 and an immediate ban on condensates and liquefied natural gas. Beijing will also ban textile imports, one of Pyongyang’s last major sources of foreign revenue. China, which accounts for 90 percent of North Korea’s trade, announced the new restrictions in compliance with unanimous UN Security Council resolutions against North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs. Friday, Pyongyang said that a hydrogen bomb test in the Pacific was under consideration.
