Customs Today on 24th February reported that official data from the General Administration of Customs showed China exported barely any fuel to North Korea in January, with a fourth straight month of no diesel, gasoline or fuel oil shipments. China has traditionally been the main source of North Korea’s fuel. The only oil product sent to North Korea was 201 tonnes of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).  The export breakdown by product comes after data showed trade with North Korea fell to the lowest level in dollar terms on records going back to June 2014.
