China Tightens Sanctions on North Korea

By Abraham Shanedling

On Tuesday, China posted a list of restricted goods for export to North Korea, including military-like hardware and chemical substance as part of international sanctions against Pyongyang’s nuclear program.

As the New York Times reported, the list was released two weeks after new satellite images revealed that North Korea may be resuming plutonium production at its reconstructed nuclear reactor at Yongbyn.

Items included on the 236-page list, released Tuesday by the Chinese Ministry of Commerce, were labeled “dual-use technologies” because they can be used for both civilian and military applications.
