China released a new list of goods that can not be exported to North Korea, including many "dual use" items that can be used to build weapons of mass destruction.

The technical list of products with possibly both civilian and military use provides an unusually comprehensive outline of items that could be used to contribute to North Korea's weapons programmes.

The items include materials and equipment to develop nuclear missiles, software related to rockets or drones, high-speed video cameras, submarines, sensors and lasers.

The Ministry of Commerce said the list was meant to comply with the requirements of a round of U.N. sanctions imposed in November in response to North Korea's fifth and largest nuclear test in September.
