With regards to the smuggling of refined petroleum products and other goods from China to North Korea, U.S. Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Sigal Mandelker, speaking to the press in Tokyo on Jan. 26, noted that “we are looking for ways to cooperate with China, but we won’t hesitate to act unilaterally when needed” and warned that China must step up sanctions against Chinese firms and individuals involved in smuggling. 


Mandelker revealed that before her visit to Japan, she met with Chinese officials in Beijing and called on them to deal with the smuggling issue. “We are firmly committed to continuing to take measures against organizations and individuals involved in evading the sanctions,” she said.
