It would leave larger Chinese banks untouched for now, the official said.
Many North Koreans are unsure of the missile's true abilities, though, a source living in North Korea's Yanggang province said. Pressure has mounted on China to restrict commerce flowing into its hermetic neighbor.

China's exports to North Korea rose 29.1 per cent in the first half of this year.
