N. Korean authorities order expatriates in China to avoid any direct or indirect contact with South Koreans

North Korean authorities are implementing measures to ferret out and blacklist business projects with links to South Korea before fully restarting Sino-North Korean trade.

A source in China told Daily NK yesterday that North Korean expatriates, including traders based in Liaoning Province, received orders to avoid contact with Chinese people who had had connections to South Koreans under any circumstances. 

The order reportedly contained the threat that those caught conducting business involving South Korea would receive “more than a slap on the wrist.” 

In the past, there have been many instances where North Korean traders have used Chinese people as middlemen to import South Korean goods into North Korea or to facilitate orders of goods requested by South Korean business people.

Like most North Korean trade, however, the majority of commercial projects with unofficial links to South Korean citizens were suspended after the North Korean authorities shut down the Sino-North Korean border in January of last year to prevent the spread of COVID-19. ......
