U.S. sanctions 13 Chinese and North Korean organizations

Nov 22 , 2017

 The United States on Tuesday imposed sanctions against 13 Chinese and North Korean organizations Washington accused of helping evade nuclear restrictions against Pyongyang and supporting the country through trade.

The U.S. Treasury announced the action, one day after President Donald Trump put North Korea back on a list of state sponsors of terrorism, on its website.

The new sanctions demonstrate the Trump administration’s focus on hurting trade between China and North Korea, which it has said is key to pressuring Pyongyang to back away from its ambition to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the United States.
