  • Trump Renews the Threat of US Military Action Against North Korea

The US is calling for an oil embargo on the North, an assets freeze on Kim Jong-Un, a ban on textiles and an end to payments of North Korean guest workers.

North Korea is already under United Nations sanctions to force the leadership to curtail its weapons programmes. "But we have been clear. that oil has to be included as an element of sanctions", Kang also said.

Mr Johnson said the new measures were "the most stringent UN sanctions regime placed on any nation in the 21st century".

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) was "ready to use a form of ultimate means", Han said without elaborating.

The North Korean state media also reported on Sunday that a concert was held at the national theatre in Pyongyang, attended by the leader and his wife Ri Sol-ju, in honour of the scientists and military personnel who were involved in the nuclear test. The report estimated North Korea may have enough in reserve to supply its military for a year of normal operations or a month at a wartime pace.

'This resolution will curtail gas, petrol and oil imports.

"The new United Nations sanctions on oil exports to North Korea are relatively moderate in scope compared to the original US proposal regarding oil exports, and would be unlikely to have much impact on the operations of the North Korean military", he said. It retains language reaffirming support for long-stalled six-party talks with that goal involving North Korea, the U.S., Russia, China, Japan and South Korea.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un called the sixth nuclear test carried out by his country last week a great victory and praised the officials and experts responsible for it, State news agency KCNA reported on Sunday.

Britain's U.N. ambassador, Matthew Rycroft, told reporters who questioned the watering down of the initial US text that "there is a significant prize in keeping the whole of the Security Council united".

But despite the U.S. assessment that these are the strongest measures ever imposed on North Korea, some experts said that their impact will only be effective if paired with additional sanctions.

North Korea vehemently objects to military exercises on or near the peninsula, and China and Russian Federation have suggested the United States and South Korea halt their exercises to lower tension.

"Our deep belief is that only a firm reaction of the council can open the path towards a political solution to this crisis".

"No North Korean worker will be permitted to work overseas once their current contracts are completed".

The North Korean nuclear issue has remained "the biggest challenges on our foreign affairs and security front" since the Moon Jae-in government took office in May and it "most likely will continue to be so for many years to come", according to the top diplomat.

It also bans joint ventures with North Korean entities, except for non-profit public utility infrastructure projects. North Korea said its September 3 test was of an advanced hydrogen bomb and was its most powerful by far. Russia's envoy said Washington's unwillingness to have U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres try to resolve the dispute "gives rise to very serious questions in our minds".
