In the article of CNN: Pompeo is under the gun, there is a sentence:

Bill Richardson, the former US energy secretary, ambassafor and repeat US envoy to North Korea,
said Xi holds the power to loosen sanctions that are biting the North Korean economy by looking the other way
on cross-border smuggling and energy restrictions
imposed by the US and United Nations.

Question) Would you please let me know the meaning of the bold part or rephrase the part?

Thank you.
