The United States welcomes the reduction of China’s trade with North Korea, said Friday the White house.

«The administration (of US President) Donald trump is pleased that China sharply reduce trade with North Korea. This measure supports the US-led efforts to provide maximum pressure on the regime in the DPRK as long as it will not abandon its illicit programs will not change behavior and will not start to move toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,» — said in a statement received by RIA Novosti.

Earlier, China in the framework of the implementation of the UN resolution 2397 announced a complete cessation of exports of iron, steel, industrial equipment, and also restricted the supply of crude oil and petroleum products and banned the import of some types of grain and agricultural products from North Korea.

The UN Security Council on 23 December last year adopted a new resolution to put pressure on North Korea in response to its test of an Intercontinental ballistic missile «And 15». The document introduces new restrictions on the supply of crude oil and refined petroleum products, and requires all countries to expel North Korean migrants in a period of 24 months. The resolution provides for other restrictions on the import into the DPRK of industrial equipment, heavy equipment and vehicles and procurement of major North Korean export goods.
