BEIJING - China on Tuesday played down a United Nations report that pointed to it as a trans-shipment point for banned missile technology and other illicit trade between North Korea and Iran.

The report, obtained by Reuters over the weekend, said North Korea appeared to have been exchanging ballistic missile technology and expertise with Iran in violation of Security Council sanctions.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry did not outright deny the report by a UN Panel. But it said the document did not have the authority of the Security Council and said Beijing scrupulously upheld punitive UN measures against North Korea.
