China has announced a complete ban on imports of coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore and aquatic and marine products from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) starting August 15, the Ministry of Commerce said on Monday.

The ban is in accordance with UN Security Council resolution 2371.

The resolution, adopted unanimously by the Security Council on August 5, strengthens UN sanctions on the DPRK in response to its two intercontinental ballistic missile tests conducted on July 3 and July 28 respectively.

They are the strongest sanctions ever imposed in response to a ballistic missile test, and the measures target the DPRK's principal exports.
