China slams new US sanctions ‘harming cooperation' on N. Korea

China slams new US sanctions ‘harming cooperation' on N. Korea
China has called on the US to “immediately stop” unilateral sanctions targeting North Korea. Beijing has been angered after a number of Chinese businesses were included on a new sanctions list.

"The Chinese side firmly opposes the US imposing unilateral sanctions and 'long-arm jurisdiction' on Chinese entities or individuals in accordance with its domestic laws," the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement. "We have lodged stern representations with the US side over this, urging it to immediately stop such wrongdoings so as not to undermine bilateral cooperation on the relevant area."

It went on to state that Beijing has been "comprehensively and strictly implementing" UN Security Council resolutions on North Korea and "fulfilling its international obligations." It said that it "never allows any Chinese citizen or company to engage in activities in violation" of those resolutions.

Beijing has long spoken out against any sanctions imposed against North Korea that are not within the framework of the United Nations.
