This photo taken on November 21, 2017 shows a general view of North Korean coal piled up on a dockside at the port in Rason. At the northeastern tip of North Korea, where the isolated, nuclear-armed country meets its giant neighbours China and Russia, United Nations sanctions on the regime over its weapons programmes are having an impact. And with the North facing further sanctions following its ICBM missile test on November 29, things are unlikely to get any easier for traders involved with the remote region's Rason Special Economic Zone (SEZ). / AFP PHOTO / Ed JONES / TO GO WITH NKorea-China-trade-sanction-diplomacy, FOCUS by Sebastien BERGER
