China's imports of N.Korean iron ore in April highest since Aug 2014 -customs

    BEIJING, May 23 (Reuters) - China raised its imports of iron
ore from North Korea in April to the highest level since August
2014, but bought no coal for a second month after Beijing halted
coal shipments from its increasingly isolated neighbour, data
showed on Tuesday.
    The data came as total imports of North Korean goods in
April fell below $100 million to a multi-year low, accelerating
a months-long decline.

major commodities between the two nations:
