United Nations security council to bring fresh sanctions against North Korea over missiles

China Vows to Strictly Implement U.N. Resolutions on N. Korea

The UN Security Council has unanimously backed a new resolution imposing fresh sanctions on North Korea in retaliation for its controversial nuclear programme.

The measure bans all exports of coal, iron and iron ore, lead and lead ore, as well as fish and seafood by the cash-starved state, thus stripping North Korea of a third of its export earnings estimated at $3-B a year.

United States envoy to the UN Nikki Haley earlier said North Korea was facing "the most stringent set of sanctions on any country in a generation".

Wang met Ri Yong Ho in Manila a day after the United Nations Security Council agreed tough sanctions on Pyongyang over its recent missile tests. With that test, it claimed to now have the ability to launch a strike against the entire USA, although global experts questioned that capability.

Kang is thanking the US for consulting with South Korea on the sanctions.

It is said that the incomes of workers dispatched by Pyongyang to other countries are a source of funds for North Korea's nuclear and missile development programs.

"It would thus help shutter the foreign currency revenue channels for North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs while having an effect of delivering a clear message to the North Korean regime on the worldwide community's no tolerance of its nuclear program", according to the ministry.

"The more the Trump gang strives to break out of today's quagmire, the more our military and people get aroused, giving more reasons for the (North Korean) republic to own nuclear weapons", the comment also said.

Even as the top United States diplomat seeks to ratchet up the pressure, he threw an olive branch to North Korea during remarks to the press on Tuesday: "We hope that at some point, they will begin to understand that and that we would like to sit and have a dialogue with them about the future that will give them the security they seek", he said.

"Moreover, I will tell him that to build a peace system, North Korea must respond to the two proposals we recently suggested".

Despite his push for better relations with Russia, Tillerson faced a huge setback in the last week with new congressional sanctions on Moscow and Russia's retaliation.

"After the implementation of the resolutions, the Korean Peninsula issue enters into a critical juncture", Wang told reporters on the sidelines of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) foreign ministers' meeting in Manila.

Trump hailed the vote, saying in a tweet that the sanctions will have "very big financial impact!"

"The day the USA dares tease our nation with a nuclear rod and sanctions, the mainland U.S. will be catapulted into an unimaginable sea of fire", it said.

"He said he's not going to tolerate North Korea being able to threaten the United States", McMaster said. It also bans new joint ventures with North Korea.

Moreover, it subjects nine North Korean individuals and four entities to asset freezes and travel bans.

The North Korean envoy hasn't spoken publicly since arriving in the Philippines.

But the measure does not provide for cuts to oil deliveries, which would have dealt a serious blow to the North's economy.

Susan Thornton, the top USA diplomat for Asia, said Beijing had historically cooperated with sanctions after flagrant North Korean violations but then slipped back over time. "And this time the Council has matched its words, and actions".
