China is restraining its oil exports to North Korea to fulfil with new sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council. It includes fuel import limits. China will also prohibit textile imports from the North Korea, as per the ministry.

North Korea entirely depends on China for nearly all its oil and gas. However, estimates of its use are low. It’s uncertain that how Beijing’s latest limit will affect them.
