N Korea warns USA over fresh sanctions

N Korea warns USA over fresh sanctions

The ministry noted that the resolution was unanimously adopted on September 11 by all members of the UN Security Council, including Kazakhstan, as a response to the sixth and most powerful nuclear test North Korea conducted on September 3.

The resolution is a water-down version of the original U.S. proposal, but it does ban North Korea from importing all natural gas liquids and condensates, as well as bans all textile exports and prohibits all countries from authorising new work permits for North Korean workers.

After the vote US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the North Korean regime has not yet passed the point of no return. But she stressed that "these steps only work if all nations implement them completely and aggressively".

Asked if Trump was considering other actions, including cutting off Chinese banks from the United States financial system, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said: "All options are on the table". And the State Department has said that it's going to take time for any of these sanctions to have the effect that the US wants, which is to pressure North Korea back to negotiations. A USA official familiar with the negotiations over the resolution said more than 90 percent of North Korea's reported exports are now covered by sanctions.

The textile ban is significant.

Textiles were North Korea's second-biggest export after coal and other minerals in 2016, totaling $752 million.

"We've been played by the Kims for years", Republican Representative Ted Poe said, referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his predecessors. And, unlike the earlier draft, the current resolution leaves in place an exception allowing Russian Federation to transship coal through the North Korean port of Rajin via rail. The reclusive nation's dictator, Kim Jong Un, chose to hold a party over the weekend, instead of opting for another missile launch.

"We have lived under United States sanctions for decades. But to achieve such a solution, the pressure on North Korea must be increased". British UN Ambassador Matthew Rycroft told the Reuters news agency on Monday that he believes the current text is mild enough to make it through the Council, and yet strong enough to be effective. He expressed hope that the United States will pledge not to seek regime change or North Korea's collapse. The regime claimed it detonated a hydrogen bomb, calling it a "perfect success".

North Korea criticized the efforts as "unlawful", and warned that they intend to make the U.S. pay for spearheading the effort.

"We have taken an incremental approach, and despite the best of intentions, it has not worked", Haley said.

Both Russia and China reiterated their proposal that the US and South Korea freeze all military drills - which anger North Korea - and asked for a halt in the deployment of the controversial anti-missile system Thaad in exchange for Pyongyang's cessation of its weapons programmes.
