China Welcomes New UN Resolution on N

China Welcomes New UN Resolution on N

The state-run media wing of North Korea, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), reported that the scientists received a hero's welcome as they traveled from the nuclear testing site to Pyongyang.

North Korea warned Saturday that it will watch every move of the United States as Washington pushes to impose new U.N. sanctions on the regime for its latest nuclear test.

Should the sanctions resolution pass, it said, Pyongyang's forthcoming measures "will cause the us the greatest pain and suffering it had ever gone through in its entire history".

Peru has expelled the North Korean ambassador to Lima, citing Pyongyang's continued tests of nuclear weapons and threat to world peace.

Washington is determined to have a vote at the UN Security Council on Monday on imposing the tough new sanctions against Pyongyang, UN diplomats said. "The choice is theirs".

"The latest [Security Council] resolution represents the global community's renewed commitment not to tolerate the North's nuclear and missile development", the government said, adding, "It also sends a grave warning to the North Korean regime that its continued reckless provocations will only end up deepening its economic isolation and diplomatic pressure".

Those new sanctions, which come on the heels of North Korea's latest and most powerful nuclear test, banned North Korean textile exports and capped its imports of crude oil.

Among other concessions the new text also softens the inspection by force of ships suspected of carrying cargo prohibited by the United Nations and drops a proposed assets freeze on the state-owned Air Koryo airline.

McCain stressed a need to strengthen ties with allies Japan and South Korea.

"The UNSC's response and actions should be helpful to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and to maintaining the stability of the region".

The United States is now seeking to impose the toughest U.N. sanctions possible on North Korea in the wake of its sixth nuclear test on September 3, and is calling on China to do more to rein in its defiant neighbor.

At the same time, Liu called on all parties to remain "coolheaded" and refrain from stoking tensions, while also saying that negotiations should resume "sooner rather than later".

Efforts to boost sanctions face resistance from Russian Federation and Pyongyang's chief ally China, which has always been reluctant to take measures that could trigger instability or a refugee exodus on its border. It also exports 200,000 tonnes of oil products, according to United Nations data.

The draft resolution, which is being circulated at the U.N. Security Council, would also ban Pyongyang from exporting textiles - nipping in the bud one of the fastest growing sectors of the North Korean economy.

But analysts were sceptical about their impact.

Since 2006, the Security Council has unanimously adopted eight resolutions ratcheting up sanctions on North Korea over its ballistic missile and nuclear programs. The situation around North Korea was in focus of talks between Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov and visiting US Special Representative for North Korea Policy Joseph Yun, the Russian side stressed that there is no alternative to political and diplomatic settlement, the Russian foreign ministry said on Tuesday. The North has often timed major provocations with important national anniversaries.

Trump has said that all option are on the table with North Korea, even military ones.

Pyongyang has staged a series of missile tests in recent months that appeared to bring much of the USA mainland into range.

On Sunday, North Korea sent shock waves across the world by detonating a hydrogen bomb, which was its sixth and the biggest nuclear test to date.
