UN Security Council approves new North Korea sanctions

China Russia North Korea Kim Jong-un Chinese expert US

Japan and South Korea said after the passage of the US -drafted Security Council resolution they were prepared to apply more pressure if Pyongyang refused to end its aggressive development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

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

"We need to use every ounce of leverage.to put maximum pressure on this rogue regime", he said at a committee hearing on ways to pressure North Korea.

To win the support of Pyongyang, ally China and Russia, Washington dropped demands, including a bid for an oil embargo and the blacklisting of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and the national airline.

MCEVERS: So tell us.

"Instead of making [the] right choice with rational analysis. the Washington regime finally opted for political, economic and military confrontation, obsessed with the wild dream of reversing the DPRK's development of nuclear force - which has already reached the completion phase".

The resolution requires the end of all joint ventures with North Korea. But the detected xenon-133 is a radioactive isotope that does not occur naturally and which has been linked to North Korea's nuclear tests in the past.

The initial text included a total ban on oil imports, a measure seen by some analysts as potentially destabilising for the regime. The FBI is also examining North Korea's link to the theft of $81 million through the New York Fed past year, Bloomberg Markets reported last month.

The resolution, however, was much weaker than the US -proposed original draft that included cutting off crude supplies to the North and freezing overseas assets of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

North Korea detonated its sixth and most powerful nuclear bomb last Sunday, which it said was a hydrogen device. It declined to name the website and said it believes North Korea prefers larger targets like exchanges than individual owners of cryptocurrencies.

South Korea's opposition Bareun Party lawmaker Ha TaeKyung, who has followed North Korean hacking attempts, said it had apparently stolen more than 90 billion won (USD 80 million) from South Korea through hacking attacks in the four years to June, including cyber-attacks on ATMs. It has voted unanimously on a new sanctions resolution.

There are a few things that made it through the negotiating process - for instance, a ban on textile exports from North Korea, for instance. Exports of copper, nickel, silver, zinc and the sale of statues were also banned.

2 June 2017: United Nations imposed a travel ban and asset freeze on four entities and 14 officials, including the head of North Korea's overseas spying operations.
