|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang's Remarks|
Q: On February 24, the US Treasury Department announced its latest round of sanctions against the DPRK as well as companies, vessels, and individual of some countries who they believe are working in connection with the DPRK, including some Chinese entities. What is your comment?
A: The Chinese government has been comprehensively and strictly implementing the Security Council resolutions on the DPRK and fulfilling its international obligations, and never allows any Chinese citizen or company to engage in activities in violation of the Security Council resolutions. If any breach of the Security Council resolutions and Chinese laws and regulations is found out through investigation, the Chinese side will seriously deal with it in accordance with laws and regulations.
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. We have lodged stern representations with the US side over this, urging it to immediately stop such wrongdoings so as not to undermine bilateral cooperation on the relevant area.
