United Nations bars four N.Korean ships from global ports: diplomats

United Nations bars four N.Korean ships from global ports: diplomats

The tweet, which came as Trump was on his golf course in Palm Beach County, comes after outlets in South Korea reported that satellites have spotted Chinese ships transferring oil to North Korean vessels.

In the interview, Trump said he'd be willing to launch a pre-emptive strike against North Korea if negotiating "like crazy" didn't work.

The South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo cited unidentified officials this week as saying Chinese ships transferred oil to North Korean vessels some 30 times since October. Trump asked Chinese President Xi Jinping in November to cut off North Korea's oil supply entirely, the American ambassador to the U.N., Nikki R. Haley, said at the time.

The problem is that any oil embargo imposed on the North in the event of further provocations will probably be futile as long as illegal smuggling continues. Fox News summarized the Korean paper's report on Wednesday.

China's foreign ministry has defended its enforcement of United Nations sanctions against North Korea.

Himachal Pradesh CM: Dhumal said not in race for top job
This was a clear sign that BJP was not keen on sending its central leaders or ministers to the states as CM. Dhumal, who had lost from Sujanpur, clarified that he was not in contention for the post of CM.

Members of the Trump administration have repeatedly vowed to stop North Korea's nuclear program - and have not ruled out a military option that some analysts fear could lead to a nuclear conflict.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday said he was "very disappointed that China is allowing oil to go into North Korea" and that such moves would prevent "a friendly solution" to the crisis over Pyongyang's nuclear program.

The US-drafted resolution bans the supply of almost 75 percent of refined oil products to North Korea, puts a cap on crude deliveries and orders North Korean nationals working overseas to be sent back by the end of 2019.

Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying was unaware of details relating to the oil products export situation, but said: "As a principle, China has consistently fully, correctly, conscientiously and strictly enforced relevant UN Security Council resolutions on North Korea".

Documents seen by Reuters this month showed Washington called on the Security Council to blacklist 10 ships for circumventing sanctions by conducting ship-to-ship transfers of refined petroleum products to North Korean vessels or transporting North Korean coal.
