N Korea rejects United Nations sanctions, warns US

The U.N. Security Council voted Monday to impose new sanctions on North Korea in response to the country's latest nuclear test.

The unanimously passed resolution will impose the latest in a string of sanctions.

It comes days after the regime in Pyongyang claimed to have exploded a hydrogen bomb capable of being delivered on an intercontinental ballistic missile.

In July, after Pyongyang warned it might fire missiles toward Guam, President Donald Trump threatened to rain "fire and fury" on North Korea.

The first version of the U.S. plan, published on Wednesday, included a "ceiling" on "all points" and aimed at responding to North Korea's sixth nuclear test on September 3, a diplomat said.

North Korea's nuclear weapons programme must be stopped before its missiles can strike the United Kingdom, the Defence Secretary has warned. "North Korea must be deterred from repeating its provocative actions", he said, referring in particular to the joint military exercise between Japan and North Korea.

Branches of China's biggest banks have suspended financial transactions for North Koreans, employees told AFP, suggesting that Beijing has pursued stronger measures against its nuclear-armed ally than previously thought.

It is understood that with backing from China and Russian Federation, the council voted 15-0 yesterday to slam a ban on textile exports and restrict shipments of oil products to North Korea.

Beyond the Dollars 1.3 billion in annual revenues they would cut from North Korea, new maritime authorities would help them stop them from obtaining funds by smuggling coal and other prohibited materials around the world by ship, the top American diplomat said.

Pyongyang has staged a series of missile tests in recent months, culminating in an intercontinental ballistic missile that appeared to bring much of the U.S. mainland into range - ramping up tensions and earning itself a seventh set of UN Security Council sanctions.

The draft is subject to approval by all 15 members of the security council.

The sanctions restrict oil imports and ban textile exports - an attempt to starve the North of fuel and income for its weapons programs.

"So we've got to work at this problem and bring about a diplomatic solution that stops the development of North Korea's nuclear programme and enforces the sanctions we have at the moment".

"We can designate Chinese banks and companies unilaterally, giving them a choice between doing business with North Korea or the United States", said Royce, who had breakfast on Tuesday with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Beijing is said to have instructed its state banks to start suspending transactions through accounts held by North Koreans, potentially making trade between the two countries more hard.
