United Nations aims more sanctions at North Korea

Within the framework of the resolution, United Nations member-states will not be available to open joint ventures or cooperative entities with North Korean entities or individuals, as well as not be able to to increase the number of North Korean workers already engaged in the projects on the territories of the member states.

"We should not fool ourselves into thinking we have solved the problem".

South Korea's foreign minister, meanwhile, held out a diplomatic olive branch Saturday, saying she was open to holding discussions with her North Korean counterpart at a security forum in the Philippines.

"Further action is required". "The United States is taking and will continue to take prudent defensive measures to protect ourselves and our allies".

"It was not a good day for North Korea".

As the sanctions are created to deprive the Kim Jong-un regime of financial resources to develop its nuclear and missile programs, restrictions on supplies of oil will be excluded.

"We should always be hard on any country that tries to meddle in our elections, whether it's Russian Federation or anyone else", she said. China's UN Ambassador Liu Jieyi called for a halt to the deployment and for any equipment in place to be dismantled.

"Moon took office in May with vows for a dual-track approach of North Korea's denuclearization and dialogue with Pyongyang, but his rapprochement gesture including offers for talks has hit a snag", Yonhap said in an August 2 report. A vote could come as soon as Saturday.

"We have, you know, the president's Twitter feed", said Gorka on Fox News when asked what the administration can do to urge China to act on the increasing threat. Very big financial impact!...

"This was a strong day in the UN, it was a strong day for the United States and it was a strong day for the global community".

The United Nations Security Council voted 15-0 to sanction North Korea.

North Korea claimed it carried out a second successful test of an ICBM on July 30, less than a month after a previous test.

However China and the United States have again worked for weeks together negotiating the text.

If fully implemented by China and Russia, North Korea's main economic partners, the measures would tighten the vise around Pyongyang as it seeks to develop its military programmes.

"This is pretty impactful", Haley told Cabrera.

"These sanctions will cut deep and in doing so, will give the North Korean leadership a taste of the deprivation they have chosen to inflict on the North Korean people". The denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula is the common wish of many countries.

"This is the most stringent set of sanctions on any country in a generation", Haley said. The DPRK's principle foreign exchange bank would have its assets frozen and members subjected to a travel ban.

The new raft of measures are the seventh set of United Nations sanctions imposed on North Korea since it first carried out a nuclear test in 2006, but these have failed to compel Pyongyang to change its behaviour.

Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Florida Mar-a-Lago resort in April seeking to improve relations with the leader and work to persuade China to toughen up on North Korea's nuclear ambitions.
