Japan calls for China to stop oil exports to North Korea

Monday’s Sankei front-paged a report saying that it has learned from several sources connected to Japan-China relations that the GOJ has urged the Chinese government several times to suspend its exports of petroleum products, including crude oil and gasoline, to North Korea. According to the paper, Japan made the request to such senior Chinese officials as Six-Party Talks Chief Negotiator Wu Dawei, Deputy Foreign Minister Kong Xuanyou, and State Councilor Yang Jiechi when they visited Tokyo in April and May. However, the Chinese officials did not provide specific responses to Japan’s requests.
