United Nations Security Council approves sanctions against North Korea

UN Security Council passes toughest-ever sanctions against North Korea

North Korea had warned ahead of the U.N. vote that the United States would pay a "due price" if it pursued stronger sanctions.

"I don't know if it has any impact, but certainly it was nice to get a 15-to-nothing vote, but those sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen", Trump said in vague but threatening remarks.

"We think it's just another very small step - not a big deal", Trump said as he met with Malaysia's prime minister at the White House.

United States lawmakers, however, seemed to be more inclined to exert pressure on Beijing and other countries striking deals with Pyongyang as they demand a "supercharged" response to North Korea's nuclear tests, including imposing sanctions on companies from China and any other country doing business in North Korea.

The US and its allies argue that tougher sanctions will pile pressure on North Korea to negotiate an end to its weapons programmes but experts are sceptical.

Late on Monday, 11 September, the top United Nations body unanimously adopted its ninth package of sanctions on North Korea to punish the hermit kingdom for its recent nuclear detonation.

The U.S. Energy Information Agency reported that the textile ban and oil cap will deduct roughly 10 percent of what North Korea now gets from China, but will reduce total imports by 30 percent.

Briefing the USA lawmakers, Treasury Assistant Secretary for Terrorist Financing Marshall Billingslea displayed satellite photos to demonstrate North Korea's deceptive shipping practices.

North Korea has made rapid progress in its nuclear and missile programmes despite multiple sets of United Nations sanctions, and Go Myong-Hyun at the Asan Institute of Policy Studies said the latest measures were "not enough to cause pain".

Sanctioning designated North Korean government entities.

As for energy, it caps Pyongyang's imports of crude oil at the level of the last 12 months, and it limits the import of refined petroleum products to 2 million barrels a year.

It followed up with a sixth nuclear test on September 3, its largest to date, which North Korea said was a hydrogen bomb small enough to fit onto a missile. It noted that North Korea exported $270 million of coal, iron, and zinc-all of which the sanctions prohibit-to China during that time period.

"We don't take pleasure in further strengthening sanctions". Earlier this year, China, its only ally, also suspended coal exports from North Korea. Han said Washington "fabricated the most vicious sanction resolution", news agencies reported.

Meanwhile, Democrats charged that Trump is exacerbating the increasingly tense standoff with North Korea with his belligerent comments and tweets. Although, the North Korean officials have warned the United States, saying "a very strong response, with unbearable consequences" will be faced by Washington, based on the increased pressure they are experiencing from US' side.

There was also activity at another location in the Mount Mantap site involving large vehicles and mining equipment that suggests "onsite work could now be changing focus to further prepare those other portals for future underground nuclear testing", said 38 North, which monitors North Korea.

Lawmakers who spoke Tuesday supported the USA pressure tactics, while voicing scepticism that North Korea could be forced into abandon nuclear weapons it regards as a guarantee of survival for the Kim dynasty.

"Yet the global community has done the right thing a few hours ago, strengthening the pressure on North Korea while calling at the same time for a peaceful solution of the crisis through a meaningful, credible political dialogue". "We sent a message that anybody who wanted to trade with North Korea - we would consider them not trading with us".
