President's Trump latest broadside against China came after South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo reported that Chinese tankers had been secretly transferring oil at sea to North Korean vessels.
Quoting South Korean government officials, it said the illegal ship-to-ship transfers had been filmed by US spy satellites about 30 times since October.


US officials did not confirm the report but one state department official quoted by Reuters suggested that such transfers could still be taking place.
"Ship-to-ship transfers... remain a concern as part of North Korea's sanctions evasions activities," the official said."
