North Korea says USA fabricated most 'vicious' United Nations sanction, warns of retaliation

North Korea says USA fabricated most 'vicious' United Nations sanction, warns of retaliation

The United Nations Security Council unanimously approved on Monday new sanctions against North Korea that bans it from importing all natural gas liquids and condensates.

The resolution caps North Korea's imports of crude oil at the level of the last year and limits the import of refined petroleum products to 2 million barrels a year. She added the measures would "eventually starve the regime of an additional $500 million or more in annual revenues".

So while China does not want a nuclear North Korea, it wants a North Korean collapse even less and it will resist any sanctions which risk that outcome. In its earlier draft, the U.S wanted to put a total ban on oil supplies to the North as it could have a crippling impact on its economy and be strong enough to prod Pyongyang to negotiate for its denuclearization.

"Hostile sanctions are like a delusion tantamount to expecting foolishly that the ocean would dry up", one official told CNN, emphasizing the government has not yet released an official reaction.

Achieving a world free of nuclear weapons is the top priority proclaimed by the President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, in his political address to the UN Security Council in January this year.

Pyongyang has staged a series of missile tests in recent months that appeared to bring much of the United States mainland into range.

On a recent visit to the Chinese border with North Korea, several Chinese traders told Reuters the Chinese government is strictly enforcing United Nations sanctions to the point that some businesses that rely on trade with North Korea have already gone bankrupt or traders have had to start trading in non-sanctioned goods. So far Comrade Kim's reckless behavior with the sixth nuclear test and a rash spate of missile firings including a rocket over Japan, hardly argues for the peaceful path. "If it proves it can live in peace, the world will live in peace with it", she told the UN Security Council after the adoption of new sanctions.

Trump has vowed not to allow North Korea to develop a nuclear missile capable of hitting the mainland United States.

"It is up to the worldwide community to see that these resolutions are implemented", he warned.

With backing from China and Russian Federation, the council voted 15-0 to back the US-drafted ban on textile exports and restricting shipments of fuel to Pyongyang.

It bars countries from issuing new work permits to North Korean labourers sent overseas - there are some 93,000, providing Kim's regime with a source of revenue to develop its missile and nuclear programmes, according to a U.S. official familiar with the negotiations.

"We are not looking for war".

By its sanctions, each time more severe, the United Nations wants to push Pyongyang to negotiate on its nuclear weapons programmes and conventional, that are deemed threatening to the world stability.

DPRK stands for the North's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Their document also denounces a random application of the sanctions and specifies that Pyongyang is a past master in the art of using third countries to transport its cargoes or to enter into financial transactions. But the Trump administration is demanding a vote in six days.

"It seems that the U.S. and China, in particular, have reached a compromise in which the former wants to take tougher action against the North and the latter wants to avoid steps that could destabilize its ally", said Kim Keun-sik, a professor at Kyungnam University. The ban on textiles has not been a problem.
