North Korean Fleet Just Moved To SHocking Location, It's A Game Changer

North Korea ships reportedly headed to China full of coal are now headed back to North Korea, still full. China cracked down on the country and banned its imports, refusing to let companies trade with them.

A fleet of cargo ships carrying coal meant to be sold and traded arrived on the shores of China on Friday. Coal is North Korea's most valuable trade resource needed by other countries. Customs in China followed orders to carry out a sanction that went into effect. All coal was ordered to be returned to the North Korean ships, and the ships were turned around and sent home.

Last year, the U.S. warned China that if it continues to do business with North Korea, that the country would face sanctions itself. Just this past weekend, United States President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping met at Trump's resort at Mar-a-Lago, Florida for a summit. The U.S. president encouraged Xi to crack down on North Korea for the series of unauthorized missile tests the country carried out.

U.S. Secretary of State and Rex Tillerson appeared on "Face the Nation" on Sunday, and reported that China was beginning to understand that tensions with North Korea have been growing and have 'reached a certain level of threat that action has to be taken'.

While China has banned imports from North Korea, the country has also announced that they'll be ramping up trad with the U.S.

Reuters reports that Eikon, their trading analysis software, predicts this will be a blessing to U.S. coal country. “To make up for the shortfall from North Korea, China has ramped up imports from the United States in an unexpected boon for U.S. President Donald Trump, who has declared he wants to revive his country’s struggling coal sector,” Reuters reported. “Eikon data shows no U.S. coking coal was exported to China between late 2014 and 2016, but shipments soared to over 400,000 tonnes by late February.”

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has not yet responded to China's actions.
