Chicoms cut coal imports from Norks

Washington Post:
Coal is North Korea’s largest export. China just said it won’t buy any for the rest of 2017.

The Ministry of Commerce announced the ban without giving a reason, but China is thought to be deeply frustrated with North Korea over its recent missile test and the assassination of Kim Jong Un’s half brother in Malaysia.
It is hard to know exactly why the Chinese government finally got ticked off at the Nork kooks.  Perhaps they had plans for his half brother.  However, with that family, there is no assurance he would have been more reasonable.  Still, it is a good move to put pressure on North Korea to stop their belligerence against people who have not really threatened them.
