North Korea condemns latest United Nations sanctions

North Korea condemns latest United Nations sanctions

This foolish government has issued a statement, clearly on the behest of the United States deploring the nuclear test carried out by North Korea on 3 September (almost 10 days after the event) and warning that its repeated violations of UN resolutions pose a grave threat to the countries in the region and beyond. The targets reportedly include South Korea-based exchange Yapizon, and two others that were not named.

North Korea seems to be ramping up cyberattacks to steal Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies that could be used to circumvent trade restrictions and global sanctions and obtain hard currencies to fund the regime.

North Korea's ambassador to Peru, Kim Hak-chol, said Tuesday that his expulsion "throws gasoline on the fire", according to Reuters.

Now North Korea's mining sector trade is under a full ban by the United Nations, as Pyongyang has stepped up both nuclear missile tests and belligerent rhetoric in recent months.

After several days of negotiations on the resolution, Washington dropped several measures to win the support of Russian Federation and China, including a bid for an oil embargo and the blacklisting of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and the national airline.

On a recent visit to the Chinese border with North Korea, several Chinese traders told Reuters the Chinese government is strictly enforcing United Nations sanctions to the point that some businesses that rely on trade with North Korea have already gone bankrupt or traders have had to start trading in non-sanctioned goods. A similar technique was used last month to empty the bitcoin wallets related to WannaCry. "The provision on forcible deportation of North Korean labor migrants has been abandoned".

According to a report by security researchers FireEye, North Korean hackers have shown increasing interest in carrying out bitcoin attacks. "China could easily solve this problem!" And I think what we're focused on now is keeping the worldwide community together and focused on enforcing those sanctions.

Japanese public broadcaster NHK cited unnamed diplomatic sources saying that Trump was also considering visiting Japan and South Korea during his Asian tour in November.

Haley said the goal of the increasing sanctions is to convince the Kim government to end its threatening nuclear missile development program in exchange for sanctions relief, economic aid and security guarantees.

Australia is playing down North Korean threats to inflict the "greatest pain" on the U.S. following additional sanctions on the rogue nation.

"They would also manage to produce oil from whatever resources are available, whether it be coal, trees or plants".

"The sanctions and pressure campaign by the Washington regime to completely obliterate DPRK's sovereignty and the right to existence is reaching an extremely reckless level", said Han Tae Song, who represents the People's Democratic Republic of Korea in Geneva.
