North Korea Threatens US After Sanctions Imposed By UN

President Trump said the new North Korea sanctions are "nothing compared to what will have to happen".

He also said China was apparently reluctant to follow through on the sanctions adopted by the UN Security Council (UNSC) against the North. "It's been a long, long time of waiting for China to comply with the sanctions that we pass and, frankly, with the sanctions that the United Nations passed", he said.

Also, the Japanese daily Yomiuri Shimbun said on Wednesday Japan, the United States and South Korea are in final stages of talks to hold a trilateral summit on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in NY.

"The Washington regime fabricated the most vicious sanctions resolution", Pyongyang's ambassador in Geneva told the UN.

The initial USA proposal included an assets freeze on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and a complete ban on countries selling oil to his government, but the measures were softened to appease China and Russian Federation.

"The bilateral and diplomatic measure taken yesterday by the Peruvian government lacks judicial and moral reasoning and doesn't further world peace and security at all", Kim said, reading from a statement at a news conference in Lima. "We are not looking for war", Haley said after the council's vote.

North Korea crisis: United Nations approves tough new sanctions over nuclear program
That's because his weapons programme gives him a deterrent against the USA , which North Korea frequently says wants to attack. The latest sanctions look to stop the country from receiving income for its missile program.


"The North Korean regime is still getting some fuel supplies from China, which can keep its most essential operations functioning", he said.

Han stressed that the nuclear program was a form of self-defense against US threats and military maneuvers, and he said Washington would have to end its hostile policy to resolve the crisis. U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley said the sanctions will cut deep.

Haley credited a "strong relationship" between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping for the unexpectedly swift success of negotiations in the last week to draft a resolution that won unanimous support from the council.

"We will work to make sure that all of our worldwide partners do the same to ensure maximum effectiveness of economic measures", she said.

China's UN Ambassador Liu Jieyi called on North Korea to "take seriously the expectations and will of the global community" that it halt its nuclear and ballistic missile development, and called on all parties to remain "cool-headed" and not stoke tensions.

The move came amid worldwide outrage over the pariah state's sixth nuclear test - its most powerful to date - earlier this month and its intercontinental ballistic missile launch in July. Haley and other USA officials have repeatedly dismissed the plan. The US had originally proposed harsher sanctions including a total ban on oil imports.

Iran will never allow foreigners to inspect military sites: Velayati
The latest IAEA report came at a time that the USA , which is a party to the agreement, seems to be laying out a case for abandoning it.


Security Council unanimously imposes new sanctions on Pyongyang in a watered-down version of initial draft resolution.

However, it bans North Korea from importing all natural gas liquids and condensates. Banning crude supply to North Korea beyond what China provides through the Dandong-Sinuiju pipeline. Instead, the ninth set of restrictive sanctions against Pyongyang authorized an annual cap of 2 million barrels of refined petroleum products to North Korea.

Along with settling for the compromise on oil, the US unsuccessfully tried to get a travel ban and freezes on the assets of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and Air Koryo, the North's flagship airline.

The measures to punish Pyongyang for its September 3 nuclear test also ban the country from importing natural gas liquids and condensates, and limit the import of refined petroleum products to 2 million barrels a year. The ship then docked in Vladivostok, Russia, before finally going to China to presumably unload its cargo. The final resolution was the result of "tactical calls" to "get strong results" and get everyone on the Security Council on board, the official added.

Although the USA had pushed for severe sanctions on oil exports and had proposed a complete ban on oil exports to North Korea during Security Council negotiations for the new sanction measures, these were not approved by some other permanent members.

At least one North Korean diplomat has warned the United States will suffer greatly for supporting sanctions.
