North Korea’s coal exports plummet

Sunday’s Asahi and several other papers wrote that the UN Security Council’s committee on sanctions against North Korea announced on May 5 that North Korea’s coal exports declined sharply in March to 6,342 tons, valued at about $580,000. This is about 1/200th of the approximately 1.44 million tons ($126.39 million) marked in January and the 1.23 million tons ($104.59 million) recorded in February. The papers wrote that the decline is probably due to China’s suspension of coal imports from North Korea to enforce UNSC sanctions resolutions on Pyongyang.
