Russian, German leaders condemn North Korea's ignoring of United Nations resolutions

Along with settling for the compromise on oil, the US unsuccessfully tried to get a travel ban and freezes on the assets of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and Air Koryo, the North's flagship airline.

It stressed that if the resolution is passed, North Korea "shall make absolutely sure that the US pays due price", taking measures that will cause the United States "the greatest pain and suffering it had ever gone through in its entire history".

North Korea warned the United States on Monday that it would pay a "due price" for spearheading efforts for fresh sanctions on the regime following its latest nuclear test, which diplomats say the U.N. Security Council will vote on later in the day.

"This will cut deep", U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said on the new resolution, pointing out it will hit Pyongyang's ability to fuel and fund its nuclear and missile programs and will reduce by nearly 50 percent its supply of gas, diesel and heavy fuel oil.

To pass, a resolution needs nine of the 15 Security Council members to endorse it. The country is already subject to sanctions that restrict its ability to export some commodities such as iron ore and limit its use of the global financial system.

South Korean officials have said they are bracing for a possible further missile test by North Korea when it marks its founding anniversary on September 9.

Freezing the current amount of crude oil provided to North Korea, but exports through the Chinese Dandong to Sinuiju pipeline are exempted.

It bars countries from issuing new work permits to North Korean laborers sent overseas and seeks to phase out the practice by asking countries to report on the date for ending existing contracts.

South Korea deployed four additional units of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system on Thursday after the North's latest nuclear test.

Both nations condemned the nuclear testing of North Korea but did not support an oil embargo as well as the other harsh sanctions for fear that economic pressure might destabilize North Korea.

Britain's U.N. Ambassador Matthew Rycroft, who backs "robust" new sanctions, said Thursday that the USA proposals to ban all oil imports and textile exports and prohibit North Koreans from working overseas - which helps fund and fuel the country's nuclear and missile programs - are "a proportionate response" to its "illegal and reckless behavior".

The revised resolution would condemn "in the strongest terms" the latest nuclear test, which Pyongyang said was of a hydrogen bomb, calling it a "flagrant" violation of previous council resolutions banning all nuclear tests.

"There is a significant prize in keeping the whole of the Security Council united", he told reporters.

The U.S., along with other major powers including Japan, had reacted with both alarm and outrage when the Pyongyang government conducted another test that showed the successful deployment of a hydrogen bomb on an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). While China and Russian Federation have condemned Kim's actions, they have said the ultimate goal needs to be to coax him to the negotiating table and avoid a war.

NORTH Korea has hit back after a U.S. vow to push for more sanctions against the hermit nation.

"Today we are saying the world will never accept a nuclear armed North Korea", she said.

He credited a "strong relationship" between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping for successful resolution of negotiations.
