It is obvious that North Korea is economically dependent on China. Almost ninety percent of North Korea’s trade takes place across the Sino-Korean border. In particular, medical and consumer electronic goods, groceries and fruits from China dominate the markets in North Korea.

“The market can’t exist without Chinese products. [If Chinese products disappeared] every trading company earning foreign currency would go bankrupt. If China shut down the customs’ office, we wouldn’t be able to export our seafood products to them. It is clear that North Korea can’t survive if the relationship between the two countries collapses,”
