China: New US sanctions threaten cooperation over North Korea

China has demanded the US reverse its decision to impose fresh sanctions on North Korea, saying the "unilateral actions" could undermine cooperation between Beijing and Washington.

China's foreign ministry said it had lodged "stern representations" with the US over the measures - which prohibit US citizens from dealing with more than 50 vessels and companies, and one person, located in countries including North Korea, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong - in a statement on Saturday.

"The Chinese side firmly opposes the US imposing unilateral sanctions and long-arm jurisdiction on Chinese entities or individuals in accordance with its domestic laws," Geng Shuang, foreign ministry spokesperson, said.
