UN Security Council Approves More Tough Sanctions On North Korea

The adoption of the US -led sanctions served as an occasion for North Korea to "verify that the road it chose to go down was absolutely right and to strengthen its resolve to follow this road at a faster pace without the slightest diversion until this fight to the finish is over", according to a statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

The resolution is a water-down version of the original U.S. proposal, but it does ban North Korea from importing all natural gas liquids and condensates, as well as bans all textile exports and prohibits all countries from authorising new work permits for North Korean workers.

Beijing has called for United Nations Security Council (UNSC) member states to engage in sufficient discussion and reach a consensus on North Korea-related issues.

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, explained during proceedings that everyone's exhausted of "trying to prod the regime to do the right thing", so the sanctions will hinder its ability "to do the wrong thing".

"To change its behaviour, deter it from carrying out illegal tests and bring it back to the negotiating table", Ms Bishop said. "We are not looking for war", Haley said after the council's vote.

Briefing the US lawmakers, Treasury Assistant Secretary for Terrorist Financing Marshall Billingslea displayed satellite photos to demonstrate North Korea's deceptive shipping practices. "The choice is theirs". It estimated that North Korea managed to export at least $270 million of banned commodities between February and August. Tens of thousands of North Koreans work in Asia and the Middle East and send most of their earnings to the government in Pyongyang, a major source of the country's foreign exchange.

"Given the high level of demonization of North Korea and the hysteria associated with the North Korean threat, not every American president will decide to do what Richard Nixon, for example, did when he went to China".

"The U.S.is trying to use the DPRK's legitimate self-defensive measures as an excuse to strangle and completely suffocate it", the statement said, using the acronym for North Korea's formal name.

Pyongyang had no immediate reaction after the sanctions were approved.

The tensions have weighed on global markets, but on Monday there was some relief among investors that North Korea did not conduct a further missile test this weekend when it celebrated its founding anniversary. The sanctions were unanimously imposed by the United Nations following North Korea's latest nuclear test. There is also a limit on imports of oil and oil products and a ban on new visas for workers.

Security Council diplomats, who weren't authorized to speak publicly because talks have been private, said the USA and China were still negotiating the text late Sunday.

But analysts were sceptical about their impact.

The measures restrict oil imports and ban textile exports - an attempt to starve the North of fuel and income for its weapons programmes.

Beijing's willingness to do so has been spotty, and even when it has called on North Korea to stand down, Kim has gone ahead with missile tests.

Washington has said military action remains an option in dealing with Pyongyang and has threatened to cut economic ties with countries that continue to trade with it.

"Naturally, persuading North Korea is a simpler task than persuading Washington", Asmolov added.
