It comes a day after Chinese customs data was revealed claiming Beijing exported no oil products to North Korea in November.

In one of three tweets early on Thursday from his West Palm Beach golf club, he charged that China was "caught RED HANDED" allowing oil shipments to reach North Korean ports. One of them - Rye Song Gang 1, seen "connected to a Chinese vessel" - was included in the November 21 sanctions as a vessel of Korea Kumbyol Trading Company possibly transferring oil to evade sanctions. Abe, who moved quickly after the election of Donald Trump to keep the mercurial US president close, said that "strengthening the Japan-US alliance is vital" to ensure regional stability. And he describes the country as "sort of wacko".

A spokeswoman for China's foreign ministry said Wednesday China has strictly enforced trade restrictions.

Despite softening his stance towards Beijing in an effort to secure more assistance on issue areas relating to the Korean Peninsula, Trump has listed China among key threats to the U.S. and global security in his new national security strategy.

Last week, the Security Council unanimously approved tighter sanctions on North Korea, including measures to slash imports of refined petroleum products by nearly 90 percent from January, as well as further restrict shipping and imposing a 24-month deadline for expatriate North Korean workers to be sent home.

In September, the Security Council put a cap of 2 million barrels a year on refined petroleum products exports to North Korea.

The U.S. Treasury released the photos showing ships from both nations trading oil illegally in the West Sea. It was reportedly the second consecutive month China didn't export diesel or gasoline to North Korea.

The United Nations Security Council, which includes China, has voted repeatedly to restrict fuel shipments to North Korea.
