    Even the ships doing smugling that would be a matter of NK and the flag state/owener state, not the affair of the US.

    I think China won't be happy about it, considering the Yinhe incident.

    Is it usual for the U.S. Coast Guard to operate so far from home shores?

    North Korea Drops Troop Demand, but U.S. Reacts Warily....

    [​IMG]

    " Kim Jong-un, North Korea’s leader, has removed a key obstacle to negotiations with Washington by no longer demanding that American troops be removed from South Korea as a condition for denuclearizing his country, the South’s president, Moon Jae-in, said Thursday.

    For decades, the reclusive country, an ally of China, has persistently demanded the withdrawal of 28,500 American troops in South Korea, citing their presence as a pretext to justify its development of nuclear weapons. The demand has always been a nonstarter for South Korean and American negotiators."

    Even if you have syngas production that is not enough to make synthetic fuels like diesel. It can be used to replace methane in a lot of industrial processes however.
    The world's largest manufacturer of synthetic fuels right now is probably Qatar and I think their factory uses technology by Sasol from South Africa. AFAIK China also has some expertise in the area but it is a lot more limited.
