North Korea says will make US suffer over 'vicious' UN sanctions

North Korea says will make US suffer over 'vicious' UN sanctions

She added the measures would "eventually starve the regime of an additional $500 million or more in annual revenues".

State Department and Treasury Department officials testified to the House Foreign Affairs Committee about the US pressure campaign against North Korea's rapid progress toward a nuclear weapon that could strike America. "It is a foot in the door", said one diplomat on condition of anonymity, for which, even with concessions, the adopted text remains very strong.

Achieving a world free of nuclear weapons is the top priority proclaimed by the President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, in his political address to the UN Security Council in January this year.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un provides guidance on a nuclear weapons program in this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) in Pyongyang September 3, 2017.

The original United States draft would have ordered all countries to impose an asset freeze and travel ban on Kim Jong-Un and four other top party and government officials.

South Korea's presidential office also welcomed the passage of new sanctions, saying they showed worldwide solidarity against the North's actions.

"North Korea needs to realize that a reckless challenge against global peace will only bring about even stronger worldwide sanctions against it", the Blue House said.

On Friday American and Japanese warplanes carried out military drills amid a widely expected upcoming nuclear test from Kim. Washington and its allies say these legitimate defensive measures are not comparable to the North's threatening nuclear program that has been banned and sanctioned by the United Nations Security Council.

Still, with Russian Federation and China on board with tightening the sanctions, North Korea will be hit with additional restrictions.

"It is up to the worldwide community to see that these resolutions are implemented", he warned.

However, Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay, reporting from the South Korean capital Seoul, said that "we seem to be stuck in this endless cycle of provocation and condemnation, and there is no sign of either side - the USA and South Korea combined or North Korea - backing down from their state positions".

According to Chinese customs data, North Korea imports almost 2.2 million barrels a year in petroleum products, but some USA officials believe the true number is much higher: about 4.5 million barrels.

North Korea "will be absolutely sure that the United States will pay the price", said Pyongyang. North Korea will also lose two of its largest sources of income - textile exports and overseas labourers, according to the South Korean representative Cho Tae-Yul.

This represents a reduction of 10 % of the petroleum products, according to the u.s. department of Energy, which is estimated at 2.2 million barrels, imports north Korean.

"We don't take pleasure in further strengthening sanctions today", said Haley.

"The forthcoming measures by DPRK (North Korea) will make the United States suffer the greatest pain it has ever experienced in its history", he told a disarmament conference in the Swiss city. Its current assessment is that these objectives are best advanced by keeping Kim Jong-un in place.

His committee also wrote a letter to the administration listing large Chinese entities ripe for sanctions, including the Chinese Agricultural Bank and the China Merchant Bank. But the Trump administration is demanding a vote in six days.

Whether North Korea will take such a step is best left to their conscience but a potential offensive against the world's most powerful military raises a question: Can the United States protect itself from such an occurrence?

How significant is the textiles ban? "We must do that by cutting off the fuel and the funding that supports it".

She added it also completely banned natural gas and other products that could be used as a substitute for those fuels.

Mnuchin told a conference broadcast on CNBC that China agreed to "historic" sanctions on North Korea on Monday in a UN Security Council vote.

Yet the Security Council's recent meeting comes less than a month after the fifteen member Council met and unanimously passed a tough set of economic sanctions on the rogue communist regime.
