NK Times recently obtained photo data showing the current status of Cheongjin Port in North Hamgyong Province. What is noticeable in the obtained photos is the absence of trade activities through Cheongjin Port.

It was recently reported that Russia began supplying oil to North Korea’s Chongjin Port in defiance of UN sanctions against North Korea, but the obtained photos did not show any foreign ships and instead captured only the everyday sight of dozens of small and medium-sized wooden boats going out to catch fish. There appears to be no entry or exit of foreign ships other than illegal trade transactions with some countries, including Russia (North Korea).

In relation to this, a NK Times Hamgyeongbuk-do source said on the 13th, “There has been almost no trade activity through Chongjin Port since the coronavirus incident.”

Chongjin Port is one of North Korea’s major trading ports, where various trade activities and busy daily lives take place. However, trade activity has decreased significantly due to UN sanctions against North Korea and the COVID-19 pandemic.
