U.S. sanctions two China-based shippers over North Korea evasions

The United States on Thursday announced sanctions on two China-based shipping companies it says helped North Korea evade U.S. and international sanctions over its nuclear weapons program, Reuters reports.

The U.S. Treasury also issued an updated advisory that listed 67 vessels that have engaged in illicit transfers of refined petroleum with North Korean tankers or were believed to have exported North Korean coal.

The Treasury Department identified the sanctioned firms as Dalian Haibo International Freight Co. Ltd and Liaoning Danxing International Forwarding Co. Ltd, both based in China.
