The Jin Hung 9 docked at a port in Tangshan city in northern Hebei province, near Beijing, on Thursday morning. According to a daily docking plan published on Jintang port’s website, the North Korean ship was loaded with anthracite coal. The website listed a nearly six-hour unloading time for the ship. What the Jin Hung 9 unloaded is not clear. Speaking Friday, Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Lu Kang said the country’s policy of not accepting coal imports from North Korea had not changed.Read More”There have been some reports that some coal ships have tied up in port. You are aware if these ships continue to remain out at sea, away from port, we need to make some humanitarian consideration for their crews,” Lu said. He added that “nothing that violates the implementation” of sanctions had occurred. At least four other North Korean ships were listed as having docked at the port, but it is unclear what their cargo was. .m-infographic–1492764266011
