The United Nations has said in a statement that North Korea is using Chinese ships to circumvent sanctions. Despite UN sanctions, North Korea was able to boost its trade in coal and petroleum products last year with the help of China’s shipping fleet and circumvent sanctions, the UN Security Council’s Sanctions Committee said in a statement. The annual report was published online on Friday, but was deleted hours later without explanation.
According to the report, from January to August 2019, North Korea exported 7.3 million tons of coal and was able to earn $ 370 million despite international sanctions. The image, which was published with this news, showed how the oil refined by the Chinese ship is transferred to the North Korean ship.
In fact, the Chinese communist government is helping North Korea circumvent sanctions and provide the resources needed to build nuclear weapons.
