China may face new sanctions on North Korea — Treasury's Mnuchin

China may face new sanctions on North Korea — Treasury's Mnuchin

The ship then docked in Vladivostok, Russia, before finally going to China to presumably unload its cargo.

In a compromise, the original resolution drafted by Washington in its revised form only seeks a cap on oil imports by North Korea, lets Jong Un off the hook from travel restrictions and freeze on resources, drops sanctions on the army and the state airline, and not allow force in searching North Korean shipping.

Suspicious vessels would be stopped for inspection at sea or in a port and they could have their assets frozen, be denied port access, deregistered or hit with other penalties if they failed to cooperate.

The sanctions further squeeze North Korea.

The Senate Armed Services chairman spoke on CNN's "State of the Union". It also says that the deteriorating situation on the Korean Peninsula may lead to dangerous consequences for regional security. The Aug. 5 resolution adopted by the council capped the number of North Koreans working abroad at the current level.

The sanctions and pressure racket of the U.S.to completely obliterate the DPRK's sovereignty and right to existence is reaching an extremely reckless phase. "It might please the America First crowd but retreat won't bring peace". As a wholly new phase starts in the South-North confrontation, the public should now be clearly informed of the reliability of the US extended nuclear deterrence adjusted to meet the new threats of intercontinental ballistic missiles and thermonuclear bombs. Significantly, it stopped short of imposing a full embargo on oil exports to North Korea, most of which come from China.

"It's possible that the UNSC's estimation is faulty unless China provided candid data", the source added.

Among the celebrations was a gala event in honor of North Korea's nuclear scientists, who successfully conducted the country's sixth nuclear test.

A US official, familiar with the council negotiations and speaking on condition of anonymity, said North Korea imports 4.5 million barrels of refined petroleum products annually and 4 million barrels of crude oil.

That is roughly equal to the 520,000 tons estimated by the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) as the amount China is sending to the North via pipelines between Dandong and Sinuiju.

Han Tae Song, North Korea's ambassador to the UN, said he "categorically rejected" what he called an "illegal resolution". "And keep in mind, that doesn't even presuppose the 10,000 artillery tubes that are pointed at Seoul".

Britain and France - permanent veto-wielding Security Council members along with the US, China and Russia - have given Washington their strong backing. They mandate the closure of joint ventures and the restrict the initiation of new ones without UN approval. Russia reportedly uses considerable North Korean labour. The country is also developing solid-fuel missiles that could be fired from land mobile launchers or submarines. We have to resist such a fate with a great reawakening in all sectors, in the government and civil society with Soseong villagers joining. China is the largest supplier of crude oil to the North.

North Korea has made rapid progress in its nuclear and missile programs despite multiple sets of UN sanctions, and Go Myong-Hyun at the Asan Institute of Policy Studies said the latest measures were "not enough to cause pain".

The test sent powerful tremors across the region, suggesting the device used was the most powerful the nation has ever tested. It said it also hasn't found traces of tritium, which accompany a test of a thermonuclear, or hydrogen, bomb.
