China's trade with North Korea slumps as nuclear sanctions start to bite

North-Korea-nuclear DS TERRIFYING A 2.9 magnitude earthquake has hit North Korea

South Korea has detected a fourth small quake near North Korea's main nuclear test site after the country's sixth and most powerful nuclear test explosion last month.

"The event has quake like characteristics, however, we can not conclusively confirm at this time the nature (natural or man-made) of the event", it said.

The agency says Friday's magnitude 2.7 quake was 54 kilometers (0.62 miles) northwest of the town of Kilju in northeastern North Korea.

North Korea's deficit with China more than tripled in the first nine months of the year from the same period in 2016, to US$1.07 billion, Huang told a news conference, according to Bloomberg News.

A series of earthquakes and landslides near the nuclear test base of North Korea likely mean its sixth blast and the largest explosion makes the region unstable, experts said, while the Punggye-ri nuclear location may not be used for much longer for nuclear weapons tests.

"The explosion from trials on September 3 has such strength that the tunnels inside the underground testing site may have caved in", said Kim So-gu, head researcher at the Korea Seismological Institute.

On Friday, China's General Administration of Customs announced that China's imports from North Korea fell 37.9 per cent in September, the seventh successive monthly decline. In September, it detonated a hydrogen bomb which caused a 6.3 magnitude quake in the northeast of the country where the Punggye-ri test site is located.

This latest tremor came three weeks after a 3.5-magnitude natural disaster struck near the same area.

September's nuclear test was so strong that it shook buildings in Russian Federation and China and was described as a "perfect success" by North Korea's state-run media. These disturbances are more numerous and widespread than seen after any of the North's previous tests, 38 North said.

The area is considered stable and quakes do not normally occur there.
