Reuters reveals seafood trade slows on China-North Korea border as sanctions loom

Reuters exclusively reported that a thriving trade in seafood across the Yalu River separating China from North Korea has dramatically slowed, although there is still nearly a month to go for a United Nations deadline to tighten sanctions on Pyongyang as punishment for its missile tests. Countries have 30 days to enforce the tougher measures, which aim to choke off a third of the North’s $3 billion annual export revenue.
