U.S. investigating Chinese firms in connection with trade with North Korea

Asahi took up congressional remarks on Wednesday by State Department’s Coordinator for Sanctions Policy Daniel Fried, who suggested that the U.S. is investigating several Chinese companies on suspicion of violating the sanctions that the USG has imposed unilaterally on North Korea by saying: “We are actively looking at a number of targets.” On the recent financial sanctions imposed on a Chinese firm for breaching UN punitive measures, the USG official said: “Clearly our actions indicate that we are willing to sanction Chinese companies who are evading U.S. and U.N. sanctions.”
