North Korea says will make United States suffer over ´vicious´ UN sanctions

Pyongyang's envoy to the United Nations accused Washington of opting for "political, economic and military confrontation".

They blamed "lax enforcement" of sanctions coupled North Korea's "evolving evasion techniques" for undermining the achievement of this goal which would see the North abandon all weapons of mass destruction. "They're going to base their decisions on national interests and their position in the Middle East, and that Israel has a policy to take out nascent nuclear weapons programs of nearby countries".

The move came amid global outrage over the pariah state's sixth nuclear test - its most powerful to date - earlier this month and its intercontinental ballistic missile launch in July.

China's Foreign Ministry has said that it would support new United Nations measures as long as it promotes a political resolution.

The experts said one inquiry is into "reported prohibited chemical, ballistic missile and conventional arms cooperation" between Syria and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the country's official name.

Though Russia voted in favor of the resolution on Monday, President Vladimir Putin earlier downplayed the effectiveness of sanctions given North Korea's unrelenting nuclear ambitions. And it would cap Pyongyang's imports of refined petroleum products at 2 million barrels a year, and crude oil at the level of the last 12 months.

He also called for unity in the UN Security Council, which is set to consider a new draft resolution presented by Washington in recent days that would be the toughest-ever imposed on North Korea.

The North says it needs nuclear arms to protect itself, but the U.S. has accused the country of "begging for war".

FireEye's research noted how escalating economic sanctions against North Korea were accompanied by an upsurge in spear phishing campaigns targeting South Korean cryptocurrency exchanges. "The choice is theirs".

And North Korea is already involved with other types of illicit currency smuggling, like counterfeiting foreign currency and gold smuggling.

North Korea had said the latest test was an advanced hydrogen bomb. The agency estimates North Korea crude imports at about 10,000 barrels a day.

There are no exemptions for importing silver, copper, zinc, nickel and gold from the DPRK.

"The fact that they have succeeded raises the question about whether you can have an effective non proliferation regime, and I do think there's a message to other countries that if you acquire a nuclear capability the Americans will be hard-pressed to stop it", said Chinoy.

Traditionally, the United States has discreetly negotiated with China on any North Korea sanctions before expanding talks to the full council once the five veto powers have agreed. Pyongyang claims it tested a hydrogen bomb capable of sitting atop a ballistic missile.

Russian Federation argues that sanctions aren't working and President Vladimir Putin expressed concern last week that a total oil cutoff could hurt the North Korean people.

Last week, after North Korea conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test, Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, called for the toughest possible sanctions.

Tracking down the culprit of a cyberattack is generally hard, and North Korea has generally denied any part in global cyberattacks, despite being linked to the devastating WannaCry ransomware attack in May.

Kim Jong-un's Workers' Party of Korea is "closely following the moves of the U.S. with vigilance" according to the state-run Korean Central News Agency.

China, North Korea's sole ally and main trading partner, had strongly objected to an oil embargo initially sought by the United States out of fear that it would bring the North's economy to its knees.

"It's been a long, long time of waiting for China to comply with the sanctions that we pass and, frankly, with the sanctions that the United Nations passed", he said.
