I would have bet the farm that this would happen. China says it intends to ignore the key aspect of the UNSC resolution designed to control the criminal regime in NK. The most important part of the UNSC resolution specifies that cargo bound for NK must be inspected for materials that could be used for making additional nukes and missiles, and that NK export cargo must be inspected for finished weapons. China and Russia had earlier this week succeeded in stripping the resolution of UN Chapter 7 authority, where participating nations could use military force, if necessary, to inspect NK import and export cargo. Now, according to the news story below, China says it intends to completely ignore the aspect of the UNSC resolution that calls for inspections, even though Beijing voted for the UNSC sanctions. Since almost all cargo to and from NK moves by land across the China-NK border, Beijing's failure to inspect NK cargo will make the most important aspect of the UNSC resolution meaningless. This toothless UNSC outcome should surprise no student of the NE Asian political and military struggle for power between Beijing and Washington. As pointed out in other posts on this board, NK seeks a security guarantee from America. Every US administration since the Korean armistice has rightly refused. NK has, with Chinas acquiescence, developed nukes as a substitute for a security guarantee from America. China has succeeded in getting everything it wanted from the NK nuke detonation: the reunification of Korea has been pushed far into the future; it obtains excellent world media PR because it voted for the UNSC resolution; and NK, the Chinese proxy in the NE Asian power struggle with America, remains dependent, weak, and armed to the teeth.
