US gift to China questions enforcement of N. Korea sanctions

FILE - In this June 1, 2019, file photo, acting U.S. Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan, left, shakes hands with Chinese Minister of National Defense Gen. Wei Fenghe, right, during a ministerial luncheon on the sidelines of the 18th International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) Shangri-la Dialogue in Singapore. Shanahan sat down with his Chinese counterpart during his recent trip to Singapore and presented him with a photo book with a pointed message. The book looked like a coffee table book and was presented as a gift. But it was 32 pages of photos and satellite images of North Korean ships near China’s coastline involved in oil shipments that violate international sanctions.
