China's trade with North Korea sinks in October after United Nations sanctions

Kim Jong-Un North Korea Blasts US Terrorism Blacklisting

Beijing:North Korea has denounced US President Donald Trump's decision to re-designate it as a so-called state sponsor of terror, saying the move amounts to a "serious provocation" that justifies Pyongyang's development of nuclear weapons.

Trump said strong USA sanctions "supports our maximum pressure campaign to isolate the murderous regime" - a claim that no one would deny.

"The new sanction added ships, new individuals and institutions so it is seeking to partially block North Korea's maritime trade", said Kim Yong-hyun.

Air China is the only airline besides North Korea's own Air Koryo that operates flights in and out of the isolated country. But the unilateral measures, analysts said, only prevent USA companies and banks from doing business with those sanctioned, which was already happening in practice. On Tuesday the USA unveiled its fresh sanctions which also targeted North Korean shipping, raising the pressure on the North to abandon its nuclear programme.

The report chillingly warns: "North Korea lacks a clear distinction between the use of nuclear weapons against military targets and their use against civilian targets".

The US government is also doing well to encourage other countries to join in.

The order from the U.S. Treasury Department sanctioning a 13 Chinese and North Korean companies and agencies and 20 vessels owned by North Korea added substance to the words of Trump as he denounced North Korea for spreading terror at home and overseas.

North Korea conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test in early September and has staged 15 missile tests over the course of the year.

Trump's September executive order targeted North Korea's textiles, fishing, information technology and manufacturing industries, and was created to "cut off sources of revenue that fund North Korea's efforts to develop the deadliest weapons known to humankind".

As Trump said, the decision reaffirms the United States government's commitment to imposing maximum pressure on the Pyongyang government.

Some North Korea analysts argue the state sponsor of terrorism designation and new sanctions could encourage a return to testing and belligerence from Pyongyang and discourage it from entering talks.
