Trade between China and North Korea looks to be slowing drastically, providing further evidence that Beijing may be bowing to U.S. requests to put pressure on the rogue state.
The world's second-largest economy imported and exported goods worth $456.16 million in July, down from $489 million in June.
The data, released by China's General Administration of Customs and analysed by Reuters, showed that just 120 tonnes of gasoline was shipped from China to North Korea in July.
By comparison the June figure was 8,262 tonnes.
This after state-owned China National Petroleum Corp suspended sales of fuel to North Korea in June over concerns about payments.
China slapped a ban on coal purchases from its border neighbor in June and therefore imported zero coal in July.
Iron ore imports from North Korea slowed by almost a quarter during the month and Reuters has reported that Beijing is now pressuring iron ore traders not to buy the commodity from North Korea.
