China orders ban on North Korean imports

China extended a ban on several imports from North Korea, in line with tougher sanctions recently adopted by the United Nations, Reuters and the South China Morning Post reported.

The import ban will take effect Aug. 15 and covers iron, iron ore, lead, seafood, and lead concentrates and ore, the reports said.

The new sanctions are open-ended and will remain as long as North Korea continues its nuclear and missile programs, according to the South China Morning Post. The ban on coal imports is extended to 2018.

The UN Security Council on Aug. 6 approved new sanctions against North Korea in response to the reclusive country's two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July.
