The official representative of the foreign Minister of China Lou Kahn on Wednesday denied media reports that China has asked the US 100 days of grace for the economic impact on North Korea.

Earlier, Japanese newspaper «Asahi» said that it was during a meeting of the President of the USA of Donald trump and Chinese President XI Jinping in April.

«This information is not true,» said Lou Kahn, responding to a question.

According to «Asahi», the United States insisted on the introduction of tougher measures against North Korea, 90% of foreign trade turnover of which is China. Otherwise, Washington has threatened proliferation sanctions against the DPRK, the Chinese enterprises and financial institutions that operate with this country, the newspaper said. In this case, these companies will not be able to do business with their American partners. In response, China asked for a delay of 100 days — similar to that which the parties failed to reach agreement on foreign trade.
