China Cut Oil to North Korea

China has reduced "a significant amount" of its oil supplies

There are growing concerns that Pyongyang may be planning to follow up its recent missile launches with a nuclear test.

But North Korea will not rule out a nuclear test as long as Washington is hostile toward Pyongyang.

China, the communist North's closest ally and key provider of oil, has agreed with South Korea to cooperate to prevent a possible North Korean nuclear test.

China also has reduced "a significant amount" of its oil supplies to Pyongyang since the July 5 missile launches, South Korea's Chosun Ilbo newspaper said.
