N.Korea rejects latest United Nations sanctions as provocation

"The adoption of another illegal and evil "resolution on sanctions" piloted by the U.S. served as an occasion for the DPRK to verify that the road it chose to go down was absolutely right", the North's foreign ministry said in a statement published by the official KCNA news agency.

In the latest sanction slapped on the country, the UN Security Council on Monday banned North Korean textile exports, an important source of hard currency, and capped its imports of crude oil.

An oil pipeline that supplies 90 per cent of North Korea's crude has been excluded from the latest United Nations sanctions against Pyongyang in part for one very practical reason: once China turns it off, it can't be easily turned back on again, Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post said today.

There are a few things that made it through the negotiating process - for instance, a ban on textile exports from North Korea, for instance.

North Korea threatened the United States by saying it will suffer the greatest pain.

North Korea's powerful nuclear test earlier this month may have been even stronger than first reported, equivalent to roughly 17 times the strength of the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, according to a new analysis by a us monitoring group.

Also the resolution prohibits UN Member States from providing work authorizations for DPRK nationals unless "is required for the delivery of humanitarian assistance, denuclearization or any other objective", consistent with other resolutions on the topic.

Asked if Trump was considering other actions, including cutting off Chinese banks from the U.S. financial system, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said: "All options are on the table. The choice is theirs".

Washington had initially sought a full oil embargo and a freeze on the foreign assets of leader Kim Jong-Un in response to the blast, but dropped them following strong opposition from China and Russian Federation.

The measures, if implemented, would mark a significant increase in pressure on China to rein in North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Under the measure, joint ventures with North Korean entities are prohibited, while governments are authorised to inspect ships suspected of carrying banned cargo from the country, but must first seek the consent of the vessels' flag state.

The brigade-sized unit of between 2,000 and 4,000 soldiers will be established by year's end, The Times reported the defense minister, Song Young-moo, as saying, adding that the military was already "retooling" helicopters and transporting planes to be able to penetrate North Korean airspace at night.

The amounts detected by the NSCC will have no impact on South Korea's environment and population, Choi said. He urged Pyongyang to take "concrete action" toward denuclearization.

The resolution follows the condemnation by the Council of the nuclear test carried out by DPRK on 3 September of this year and its violation of eight resolutions dating back to 2006 which could have "large-scale regional security implications".

According to analysts at 38 North, North Korea's most recent underground nuclear test could be twice as strong as originally thought, as new seismic data from the 3 September explosion suggested a blast of approximately 250 kilotons, the previously assumed limit for Kim Jong-un's Punggye-ri underground test facility.

Chinese UN ambassador Liu Jieyi again called for talks "sooner rather than later".

The import of refined petroleum products is also limited. "The North may avoid an enveloping strike around Guam because that might look like a direct provocation against the USA, but it seems likely that the North will test launch a new ballistic missile that is needed on a technical level", said Korea National Strategy Institute director Kim Chang-soo.

President Donald Trump said that new United Nations sanctions "are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen" to stop North Korea's nuclear march.

According to the article, U.S. treasury has its own set of sanctions regime blacklisting people and companies who are reported to have assisted Pyongyang in developing the nuclear weapons.
