An annual report on North Korea sanctions violations revealed that North Korea exported 3.7 million tonnes of coal from January to August 2019, with more than 70 percent of it likely smuggled to China through ship-to-ship transfers. The value of the illicit coal trade during the period is estimated to be USD 370 million.

Amid an escalating series of sanctions resolutions against Pyongyang, the UN Security Council in 2017 passed a measure banning key exports including coal in a bid to reduce funding for North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
