North Korea warns United States over new sanctions

North Korea warns US of ‘greatest pain’ rejects sanctions

This eighth series of measures, supported by China and Russian Federation, the closest supporters of North Korea, aims to punish the country for its nuclear test on September 3.

An assessment by US officials has found that Russian smugglers have been shipping petroleum and other vital supplies to North Korea to help that country weather earlier rounds of economic sanctions, casting further doubt on whether financial measures alone can force Kim to abandon his nuclear weapons program. The North Korean regime has not yet passed the point of no-return", Haley told the council, adding: "If North Korea continues its unsafe path, we will continue with further pressure.

"If it agrees to stop its nuclear programme, it can reclaim its future, if North Korea continues its unsafe path, we will continue with further pressure".

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres welcomed the council's "firm action" to send a clear message to North Korea that it must comply with its global obligations, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.

The US-drafted resolution would impose a ban on textiles from North Korea, place limits on supplies of petroleum products and cap crude oil shipments to North Korea, in response to North Korea's sixth and largest nuclear test.

The watered-down resolution does not include sanctions that the USA wanted on North Korea's national airline and the army.

While Russia and China - which hold veto power on the Security Council - agreed to the restrictions, the result is less than Haley had sought when she pushed for a ban on oil and a freeze on Kim's assets overseas.

South Korean nuclear experts, checking for contamination, said on Friday they had found minute traces of radioactive xenon gas but that it was too early to link it to Sunday's explosion.

The state media also took advantage of the anniversary celebrations of the founding of North Korea on Saturday to justify its status as an "invincible nuclear nation". "They give us a much better chance to halt the regime's ability to fuel and finance its nuclear and missile programs".

Whatever final text was adopted, she hoped it would "have significant consequences in terms of greater economic pressure on North Korea". All textile exports will be stopped and countries will be prohibited from authorizing new work permits for North Korean workers, sealing off a major source of hard currency for the regime.

It will lose $1.3 billion in annual revenues, she added.

North Korea's Foreign Ministry said in a statement published on state media that if the USA "does rig up the illegal and unlawful "resolution" it would respond in kind.

Joint ventures will be banned and the names of senior North Korean official and three entities were added to a United Nations sanctions blacklist that provides for an assets freeze and a global travel ban.

The limits on oil could indeed have some impact on the nation, as the 2 million barrel annual cap is less than half what North Korea imported past year. In a clear message to North Korean threats to attack the U.S., she said: "We will never forget the lesson that those who have evil intentions must be confronted".
