The United States is calling on China to fully implement UN Security Council sanctions against North Korea, but adds that it strongly supports humanitarian assistance for the North Korean people.
Responding to a written inquiry from Seoul-based Yonhap News Agency regarding resumed trade between Pyeongyang and Beijing, the U.S. State Department said it shares the same view as China when it comes to improving the humanitarian situation in North Korea.
However, it explained the North often diverts humanitarian aid away from its most vulnerable citizens.
