China on Wednesday rejected US new sanctions targeting Chinese traders doing business with North Korea as “wrong”, stressing that it has enforced UN sanctions over Pyongyang’s nuclear provocations. “We consistently oppose any country adopting unilateral sanctions based on its own domestic laws and regulations and the wrong method of exercising long-arm jurisdiction,” foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a regular news briefing.
“China has been comprehensively respecting and strictly implementing (UN) Security Council resolutions and our efforts on this regard are witnessed by all,” he said, calling on Washington to provide “any solid evidence” that Chinese companies have violated the UN sanctions.
“If any companies or individuals have violated domestic laws, we will severely deal with that in accordance with our laws and regulations,” he added.
