The United States has been trying to get China and Russian Federation to back a new UN Security Council resolution imposing stiffer sanctions on North Korea following its latest missile test.

For China, the increasing numbers on its trade relations with North Korea does not necessarily mean that the country is failing to follow the resolutions imposed by the United Nations.

North Korea has warned the United Nations Security Council against adopting any further sanctions resolutions against Pyongyang over its launch of a ballistic missile last week.

The so-called secondary sanctions now being considered are a way for the United States to apply targeted economic pressure on companies in countries with ties to North Korea by denying them access to the USA market and financial system.

China imported only 2.67 million metric tons of coal from North Korea in the first half of this year, a year-on-year drop of 74.5 percent, Huang noted.

"Trade between China and North Korea grew nearly 40 percent in the first quarter", Trump tweeted on July 5.

A bipartisan group of five top Senators have introduced a legislation which if passed, would ban any entity that does business with North Korea or its enablers, from using the USA financial system.

That the White House would consider a second round of sanctions so soon after the first indicates that the Trump administration is willing to back up its tough rhetoric on North Korea.

The report linked Iran and North Korea, claiming that both states were moving toward producing the Fadj-5 Aero CRBM and KN-SS-X-9, respectively.

The radar capable of tracking unmanned aerial vehicles from North Korea would be used for local air defense, and will enter mass production for deployment in 2018, South Korean news service Newsis reported.

The North says it will not abandon its missile and military nuclear programs until the United States ends its hostility toward Pyongyang. However in February China said it would halt purchases until the end of the year, in compliance with Security Council resolutions over the North's nuclear program.

The text calls for kicking out from the USA banking system the businesses and financial institutions involved in a significant amount of trade in goods and services with the communist state, barring all North Korean-made products from entering the U.S. market, and sanctioning all firms engaged in labor exports.

The UN sanctions allow trade in items considered "exclusively for livelihood purposes". But even before the test - which Washington and Seoul labeled "destabilizing and unlawful" - Americans and many people in the Asia-Pacific region held negative views of North Korea and its nuclear weapons program.

North Korea's biggest need is to pay for fuel, since the country doesn't come close to producing enough oil.
