Chinese firms are violating a UN embargo by supplying North Korea with key components to make weapons, the Daily Telegraph said. These include parts for ballistic missiles including launch vehicles, according to evidence provided by an Asian intelligence agency.
Classified documents seen by the paper show that Beijing has failed to act when confronted with evidence that Chinese companies are breaking UN Resolution 1874 and helping North Korea build long range missiles.
The intelligence agency found that North Korea companies continue to buy banned materials in China.
The report said these entities "have been smuggling in or out controlled items by either setting up and operating a front company in China, or colluding with Chinese firms to forge documents and resorting to other masking techniques."
