BEIJING (Reuters) - China's exports to North Korea rose for the third straight month in August, but were still a fraction of their pre-COVID levels, Chinese customs data showed on Saturday.

Chinese shipments to North Korea climbed to $22.5 million in August from $16.8 million in July. That compares with $219 million of exports in August 2019.

China imported $6.2 million of North Korean goods in August, up from $4.1 million in July.
