China's imports from North Korea fell 37.9 percent in September from a year earlier, marking the 7th consecutive month of decline, the customs office said on Friday.China-U.S. ties have been strained by President Donald Trump's criticism of China's trade practices and by demands that Beijing do more to pressure North Korea over Pyongyan's nuclear and missile programmes.China's exports to North Korea in September dropped 6.7 percent from a year ago, a spokesman for the General Administration of Customs told a briefing, adding no seafood imports from North Korea were recorded last month.China's imports from North Korea fell 16.7 percent on-year to $1.48 billion in Jannuary-September, while exports to North Korea rose 20.9 percent to $2.55 billion in the same period.That created a trade surplus with North Korea at $1.07 billion in the first nine months of this year.REUTERS SV 0847
