US media found a way to circumvent sanctions against companies trading with the DPRK

65
American edition Financial Times Comes out with material that presents as a revelation. American reporters say that, despite the sanctions imposed on North Korea, foreign companies continue to maintain trade and economic contacts with the DPRK. It was noted that those companies in respect of which the United States had previously imposed sanctions continue to interact with Pyongyang.


The submission states that companies trade with North Korea through legal entities registered in the PRC's free economic zone - Hong Kong. It is noted that at least 16 companies operating under sanctions pressure from the US Treasury and other US structures are working in this format today.

The Financial Times writes that China allegedly wants to prevent this kind of trade, but the laws of the FTA and other liberal laws regarding Hong Kong (Hong Kong) do not allow interfering with the business carried out through these territories.

US media found a way to circumvent sanctions against companies trading with the DPRK


American journalists, citing sources in the political elites of the United States, report that Washington will push Beijing to tighten measures against companies implementing this kind of trade with the DPRK. It turns out that the United States will now themselves be pushing China to repeal the liberal legislation regarding Hong Kong? ..

    The USSR, too, was all in sanctions, but somehow managed, we have had vast experience since 1917!

      They won’t be able to bomb Hong Kong, but they’ll probably rub the pens. The Chinese themselves will put down the sanctions themselves.

        The Chinese themselves put the sanctions, it does not seem enough.

        The Chinese have their own interests in the UK. They do not need hemorrhoids at their borders. Hardly "put". Liberalism and business. They definitely do not need refugees, just like us.

          Of course you are right.
          For China, the DPRK is actually like a buffer zone, and although it only partially covers the northern part of China, however, the zone turned out to be closed to prying American eyes.

        it’s not sad, but where is the USSR right now?


        The USSR did not die, not because of sanctions, but because of dissatisfied clowns, whom, as it seemed, the CPSU stole BILLIONS directly from their pockets. Well now the clowns are not far gone. They also think that if it weren’t for the government, they would be rich like the Yankees or the Swiss.

        Well, in addition to bawling clowns, there is always intelligence from foreign countries that give clowns themes for reflection, draw cool demotivators and come up with jokes. Integrated and competent work. All kinds of graphs are drawn, for quoting to actors. Throw slogans in the style of information space - Stop feeding the Caucasus. Moscow is not Russia and so on. Clowns pick up, clowns like to think that they were robbed, and not that they need to learn, improve and look for problems in themselves.

        Under the Sanctions of the USSR was from the first day of existence.

        When revolution clowns begin to be sent for prey, then it will be easier to survive the sanctions.

        In this country, it has always been visible and will be so. The external enemy will be defeated - but with his clowns we are almond. It was necessary to do in China. And from time to time to conduct purges from alarmists and actors.

        it’s not sad, but where is the USSR right now? ... so Vitalka is wrong here !!! .... another reincarnation? .... not tired?)) ....


        and I’m sure that Meehan didn’t ride in the squares of clowns in the 90s. But here there are characters who jumped - and now Putin is to blame and they are sitting here with digital epaulets telling stories

            or are you now telling me a story here about how the USSR did not die because of the price tag for oil? There, it’s also written about rotation) Are not you standing there with a poster?

            Freedom-loving nonpolitians. Rotation is important to them ***



            these are the same. Bookkeepers of corruption, listeners of Radio Liberty and thieves seekers. Now Alyosha or another clown will bring you another folder about corruption and run to overthrow the government to the delight of foreign intelligence and states. Russians cannot be broken by force - therefore, clowns inside the country will help them.

            A matter in which a lot of mind is not necessary - just for the opposition.

                you joke chtoli loss of the country during these clown movements? In the first case, 10 million, in the second, how many did not fit into the market there? 30 million?

                But how many were not born during these troubles?

                You really don't understand what I'm talking about? That any revolution is the lot of clowns, and any one throws it back in development, that then you have to catch up with the indicators of 1913 in the first case, and 87 in the second?

                  statistics, such statistics .. these are all liberal myths about a good life with a “good” king .. in 1913 we became a leader in the export of wheat, and the peasantry guzzled turnips .. Nikolashka miscalculated the country without destroying the whole shusharya around him, what can I say if the princes wore red bows (it was not the Bolsheviks invented it), and then they hung them on the trees .. like this year, the leaders in wheat, and 30 million officially below the poverty line .. yes, we live well, not 90- e .. but you drop into the village where the salaries are 7-8 thousand .. or pensioners who plowed their whole lives with a pension of 9 tons syach who commies thrown, destroyed the country .. well yes, indicators ..

            "I do not understand ... because of what the USSR did not become." Because of the planned economy - 70% of GDP was spent on defense and more than 50% of what was produced in the country was spent on freebie for half the world - on credit, whose repayment was not required.

              Well, where does the planned economy have to do with it? The USSR always knew how much the country needed lawyers, accountants, engineers. And now? Lawyers are like uncut dogs, but there is no one to work at the machine. They all said that the market itself will settle and fix everything. Schyas! We cannot swim for 26 years! And remind me, what was built by us in 1943?

              The USSR did not become due to the petty-bourgeois degeneration of wide sections of society. First of all, in power, but not only. When the focus was not to develop as much as possible for everyone, but to earn as much as possible for oneself. Which fundamentally changed the very foundation of the movement of society from progressive forward to communism (pathos as it may seem), to the reverse movement to the bourgeois system. And this movement began under Khrushchev.
              The second reason was the avalanche-like complication of the general economic diversity: from the list of all small bolts to the required number of cars or fur coats. The State Planning Commission, in principle, became unable to thoroughly calculate the need for the national economy in one form or another of products, services, etc. for every five-year period, using only accounts, arithmometers and primitive computers. Even at the modern level of development of computing power, this is not a trivial task. Although feasible. That's just the Soviet Union is gone. Hence the failures in making decisions on the release of products. But these are millions of items. Yes, with all the interconnections between themselves.
              Well, there are even fewer reasons.
              The bias towards the defense was not due to the planned economy, but because of the extremely friendly capitalist environment. Striving to vitrify the surface of Russia with carpet plantings of vigorous loaves.
              It seems that the USSR has long been gone. And the friendliness of sworn friends has not changed a gram.

      So yes, only good and this is not enough. In many respects, the USSR was noticeably lagging behind in development, especially not in the military sector of the economy. I remember that they didn’t even produce normal shoes; they bought Tomis, Cebo- and this was produced in the countries of the socialist camp. And so much for what.

        Yes, but in a very broad autonomy ...

        .Hong Kong is built into the economy of China on the principle of "One country two systems"!

        Not yet. Entry is only being carried out ... Hong Kong is a "window into the world of capital" for the PRC.

          You yourself say: Hong Kong is a window into the world of capital for the PRC. Does it mean that it is somehow integrated into the PRC economy, or is it still on its own? The Chinese, in general, are not hasty people, they have been waiting for 100 years, they will wait another 50!
          You have a peculiar manner of conducting a discussion: bring a part of my quote, argue as if from yourself, but the second part of my quote, but as if there were no objections. Well, thanks for that!

        And the United States will not be able to impose sanctions against Hong Kong, it simply means pushing it into the arms of greater China ... In short, oh yes, China, well done. The Chinese beat the Americans on their own field, but with their own tools ...


        Yes, China has taken into account all past mistakes and is now putting it into practice.

      In general, Hong Kong is the capital of world smuggling.

          I don’t know about the excellent quality, but there is a lot of counterfeit, its share of Hong Kong's GDP is 80 percent, but the city was beaten down

            This architecture does not inspire me, it looks like a city from the 5th element.

            I prefer the development of 1-3-story buildings that allow you to see the sky above your head.

    I wonder what leverage the fenders have on China?

    How to push? This is a special zone, by the way, under the Naglosaks, and it was, what about the foundations of democracy and other shnyaga? And not so long ago there were riots there, too, for good reason? And more often mattresses fall into their own trap, hence the double standards ...

    Yeah, here’s capitalism in all its glory-profit in the first place, and some notorious "national security" to the business only to the detriment!

    It is noted that those companies continue to interact with Pyongyang, in respect of which the United States has previously imposed sanctions.

    If the US has already imposed sanctions on some company, they will certainly be trading with the DPRK. What are they losing? Are they already sanctioned? I still did not understand the logic of targeting of our American friends.

    And if it imposes sanctions on more and more countries and companies, then the time will come when they will put themselves under sanctions.

      Introduce additional sanctions ...

      Such an option is very unlikely, given that sanctions are imposed selectively and often against those who agree with other countries in the United States.

      Many sanctions are carried out through the UN and, in general, Americans are disguised as nuclear security.

      The idea, of course, is not bad if they would give guarantees not to attack countries that refused nuclear weapons.
