Diplomats told Reuters that Beijing has not been fully enforcing existing global sanctions on its neighbour.

China has repeatedly said it is fully enforcing United Nations sanctions on nuclear-armed North Korea and there is nothing wrong with what it terms "normal" trade with Pyongyang, referring to areas not covered by sanctions. The surplus with the United States was China's largest since October 2015.
