U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says that North Korea will be one of the major topics of talks during his trip to China over the weekend.

Tillerson left for Beijing earlier in the day to meet with senior Chinese officials.

Traders and industry experts said the shipments were likely stranded at port since Beijing's sudden prohibition of coal purchases in mid-February, but then allowed into the country ahead of the latest round of penalties against North Korea.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said: "We are targeting North Korean banks and financial facilitators acting as representatives for North Korean banks across the globe".

Chinese President Xi Jinping speaks at the 86th INTERPOL General Assembly on September 26. Joint business projects between China and North Korea will be subject to the same ruling.

Tillerson plans to be in Beijing from Thursday through Sunday, more than a month before Trump's expected travel to China in November.

Onodera's warning echoed a comment by South Korean national security adviser Chung Eui-yong, who said during a meeting with President Moon Jae-in on Thursday that he expected Pyongyang to act around October 10 and 18, but gave no details.

At that time, the U.S. Mission to the United Nation estimated that this coal trade ban would lead to a loss of over $401 million in revenues per year for North Korea. He must seek assurances that China will bring its full weight to bear on Pyongyang, while also preserving cordial ties lest the world's most important relationship turns hostile.

"I am very disappointed in China", Trump said on Twitter.

Beijing has ordered North Korean-owned businesses in China to close by January, cutting foreign revenue for Pyongyang under United Nations sanctions imposed over its nuclear and missile programmes.

For its part, China has called on both Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong-un to tone down their increasingly bellicose rhetoric and instead try to begin peace talks.

Tillerson's visit may also touch on other regional issues such as territorial contentions in the South China Sea.

China doesn't want Tillerson's visit to be consumed by North Korea. Last year, the USA ran up a $347 billion trade deficit in goods with China - accounting for almost half the total.

In a strict sense, China did not violate the Security Council's resolutions.
