Trump slams China over reported North Korea oil sales: 'Caught RED HANDED'

Bennie Garza | 29 December, 2017, 06:15

US President Donald Trump has reacted to reports on China's alleged oil exports to North Korea, violating the December 22 United Nations trade restrictions introduced against the country, limiting their oil deals to four billion barrels per year.

China has been caught red-handed illegally selling oil to North Korea, thanks to USA spy satellites, which captured images of the deals roughly 30 times since October. "There will never be a friendly solution to the North Korea problem if this continues to happen", he said.

The United Nations Security Council, which includes China, has voted repeatedly to restrict fuel shipments to North Korea. Just two weeks ago, Trump credited China for its help in the US-led pressure campaign against Pyongyang, including support for three UN Security Council resolutions this year, the latest last week, over the North's nuclear and missile tests.

The report has claimed that Chinese ships had transferred oil to North Korean vessels about 30 times in October.

It is unclear if Trump's admonishment of China was based on news reports or classified information he received from USA intelligence officials.

A State Department official later said that the U.S. was aware that "certain vessels have engaged in UN-prohibited activities, including ship-to-ship transfers of refined petroleum and the transport of coal from North Korea".

"China has applied certain import bans and sanctions, but it could and should do more", he wrote in The New York Times.

The U.S. Treasury in November also sanctioned North Korea's Maritime Administration and its transport ministry, in addition to six North Korean shipping and trading companies and 20 of their vessels, in an effort to block the rogue regime's transportation networks.

The statement did not specify whether Chinese vessels were involved in the transfer.

"We urge China to end all economic ties with the DPRK, including tourism, and the provision of any oil or petroleum products, and expel all DPRK workers", he said, using the acronym for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Washington says the full co-operation of China, North Korea's neighbour and main trading partner, is vital to the success of this effort, while warning that all options are on the table, including military ones, in dealing with North Korea.

US Democratic Senator Ed Markey, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said on Twitter the North Korean threat had only increased since Trump took office and he had to find a way to get China to cut off crude oil supplies.

Mr Trump has recently praised China for helping in efforts to keep Kim Jong-un under control.

Also, on Friday, Trump sought to remind the world that he's long warned about the dangers posed by North Korea's nukes. "We'd like to have Russia's help, very important", Trump told reporters after a phone conversation with President Vladimir Putin. He tweeted a compilation video that included edited footage of an interview he did with NBC's "Meet the Press" almost two decades ago. And he describes the country as "sort of wacko".
