It also bans the export of textiles, bans joint ventures with North Korea, and bans North Korean laborers from working overseas.

Prior to the announcement, the United States had originally proposed harsher sanctions directed to the North Koreans, including a total ban on oil imports.

In other words, the North Korean test may have been nearly 17 times stronger than the bomb detonated over Hiroshima.

US President Donald Trump said Monday's sanctions, unanimously agreed on Monday by the 15-member UN Security Council, were just a small step towards what is ultimately needed to rein in Pyongyang over its nuclear and missile programmes.

August 2017: The latest United Nations resolution, in response to a series of missile tests and belligerent threats about striking the U.S., sets limits on exports of crude oil and fuel products to North Korea and includes other measures such as bans on textile exports and hiring North Korean labourers.

According to the statement issued by Peru's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, North Korea has "ignored the constant calls from the global community to fulfill its worldwide obligations, to respect worldwide law and to end its nuclear program in an irreversible and verifiable manner".

A nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, strategic bombers and "other powerful assets" could be deployed to the Korean Peninsula as a response to North Korea's latest nuclear test, the ministry said at that time, adding that it had detected "indications" that Pyongyang is preparing a ballistic missile launch.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said after the council vote that it was important to change North Korea's policy by imposing a higher level of pressure on the country than ever before. "We are not looking for war".

The German air-to-surface weapon was capable of precision strikes on key North Korean facilities even if launched from the central part of the South, it added.

A week ago Haley called for the “strongest possible” sanctions, but after several days of negotiations, Washington dropped several measures to win the support of Russian Federation and China, including a bid for an oil embargo and the blacklisting of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and the national airline. "And it will also affect some Chinese and foreign companies in Shanghai as well as border cities since they offer materials to North Korean companies for processing", Jin Qiangyi, director of Yanbian University's Asia Research Centre was quoted by the report.

Part of the reason numerous US's military options against North Korea range from bad to worse is that Seoul, a metro area with more than 25 million people, is within artillery range of the North. It declined to name the website and said it believes North Korea prefers larger targets like exchanges than individual owners of cryptocurrencies.

They have also said they could kick-start talks with North Korea if the United States halts joint military drills with South Korea, which Washington has rejected.
