China issues order to implement UN sanctions on N. Korea

Coal is among the imports from N. Korea that China has now banned

China’s Commerce Ministry issued a ban effective from Tuesday on several imports from North Korea, including coal, iron ore, lead concentrates and ore, lead and seafood, a move that is in line with UN sanctions announced this month.

Beijing issued the banning order on Monday.

UN sanctions must be implemented 30 days after the resolution was approved in a vote on August 6.

The Chinese government said any cargoes already on their way to China would be cleared by customs as usual before the UN sanctions deadline.
