BEIJING – China has failed to send North Korean workers back home by December in violation of UN sanctions, a senior US official said Wednesday. "This is why Washington has put two entities involved in exporting North Korean labor into the blacklist."

The United States reportedly estimates that Pyongyang is receiving more than $ 500 a year from its nearly 100,000 overseas workers, about 50,000 in China and 30,000. In Russia.

The 2017 UN Security Council resolution, which China also supports, requires all countries to send North Korean workers home by December 22 to stop them. Foreign currency is not allowed for North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs. Edit: Pang Kong
