China will be implementing UN sanctions on North Korea by ordering North Korean companies to close in China by January. This also includes any joint ventures with Chinese firms. However, non-profit and non-commercial entities are exempted from such order unless the government approves otherwise.

Tensions have been rising between the US and China over recent months because of the latter’s trade relationships with North. Yet China had also previously demanded that the US immediately withdraw sanctions on North Korea in August.
