It bars countries from issuing new work permits to North Korean laborers sent overseas - there are some 93,000, providing Kim's regime with a source of revenue to develop its missile and nuclear programs, according to a USA official familiar with the negotiations. This basically reconfirms that China and Russian Federation are in agreement about the proposal of a "double freeze", by which North Korea would suspend its nuclear weapon and missile tests and South Korea and the U.S. would suspend their large-scale military exercises. And it's unlikely to persuade Kim to halt his nuclear program and return to the negotiating table. "If it proves it can live in peace, the world will live in peace with it", she told the U.N. Security Council after the council adopted new sanctions.

"Today's resolution would not have happened without the strong relationship that has developed between President Trump and Chinese President Xi", Haley said. Almost 80 percent of the textile exports went to China.

The final resolution only restricts the North's oil imports.

"In case the United States eventually does rig up the illegal and unlawful "resolution" on harsher sanctions, the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea] shall make absolutely sure that the USA pays due price", said a statement published by the North's official KCNA news agency.

Instead, annual crude oil supplies are capped at current levels - China is believed to supply around four million barrels a year through a pipeline, while deliveries of refined oil products such as gasoline and diesel are limited to two million barrels a year. Are there any indications that the Trump administration is ready for some diplomacy on North Korea? "If North Korea continues its unsafe path, we will continue with further pressure".

Haley has called the proposal insulting.

In August President Donald Trump threatened "fire and fury like the world has never seen" on North Korea if it continues to threaten the US. It has voted unanimously on a new sanctions resolution.

China's United Nations ambassador, Liu Jieyi, called for a resumption of negotiations "sooner rather than later". He urged the administration to "dramatically ramp up" USA sanctions designations of entities that deal with North Korea, particularly Chinese banks.

North Korea's foreign ministry said that it "categorically" rejected the United Nations sanctions, which it says are aimed at "completely suffocating its state and people through a full-scale economic blockade".

As reported by The Associated Press (AP), the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany conducted long-running talks with Iran that led to a 2015 deal for global sanctions to be lifted in exchange for Tehran curbing its nuclear activities.

"This is a compromise in order to get everybody on board", French U.N. Ambassador Francois Delattre said of the draft ahead of the vote. Its foreign ministry spokesman responded vaguely when asked at a press briefing late last week about the likelihood of China supporting an oil embargo against its neighbor.

Royce said Washington did not need Beijing's cooperation to increase pressure on North Korea.

Until the North Koreans feel they are safe, they will eat grass before they give up [their nuclear weapons], Russian President Vladimir Putin said on September 5.

The proposed new sanctions are aimed at preventing North Korea from further developing it's nuclear capabilities.

The draft resolution, in final form, has taken out the travel and assets ban against Kim Jong Un, which would have been the first time that the North Korean leader was personally named in a resolution.
