Peru Also Expels North Korean Ambassador

Russia in new battle of wills with West over North Korea

The final resolution adopted by the security council on Monday imposed a ban on oil condensates exports to the regime, capped refined petroleum exports at 2m barrels a year - cutting existing export levels by half - and maintaining global exports of crude oil to North Korea at existing levels, about 4m barrels a year.

The original USA draft would have ordered all countries to impose an asset freeze and travel ban on Kim Jong Un and four other top party and government officials.

Despite deep frustration with Kim Jong-un, North Korea is a Chinese neighbour and ally, a fellow Leninist state with a shared victim narrative about the past and a shared ambition for the future to remove the U.S. presence in North East Asia.

Putin has instead called for talks with North Korea, arguing sanctions won't stop the country's nuclear and missile program.

Russia's Permanent Representative Vassily Alekseevich Nebenzia said that a refusal to include proposals for Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to mediate or to disavow regime change "raised serious questions".

The U.N. Security Council is stepping up the pressure on North Korea.

The unanimous decision was a response to North Korea's latest nuclear test, and is the latest in a long string of sanctions against the secretive state. "The forthcoming measures to be taken by the DPRK will cause the U.S. the greatest pain and suffering it had [sic] ever gone though in its entire history".

It also bans all textile exports and prohibits any country from authorising new work permits for North Korean workers - two key sources of hard currency for the northeast Asian nation.

Baranov's ferry service, which began operations in May, has made 14 trips between Vladivostok and North Korea so far, he said. This reconfirms that the two sides have converged on the idea of the "double freeze", by which North Korea would suspend its nuclear weapon and missile tests and South Korea and the United States would suspend their large-scale military exercises.

Additionally, the new measures will prevent overseas workers from earning wages that finance the North Korean regime - over $500 million each year - in addition to cutting off foreign investments, technology transfers and other economic cooperation, according to a statement from the USA mission to the UN.

"If China and others continue to help North Korea evade sanctions, they should not do business in the United States anymore".

Gauri Lankesh murder sparks outrage, Karna govt forms SIT
Press Club of Bengaluru president Sadashiva Shenoy, who was closely associated with Gauri, said, "divisive forces can not muzzle the liberal voices by resorting to killing".

South Korea welcomed the resolution while Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the sanctions were much stronger than earlier measures.

So co-operating with the latest round of strengthened sanctions is China's way of signalling its displeasure with what it sees as Pyongyang's reckless pursuit of nuclear and missile programmes.

SEX thimble Kim Jong-un was surrounded by adoring women as he threatened to heap more military misery and mayhem on the west.

The publicity stunt came as his envoy to the United Nations warned "forthcoming measures" will "make the U.S. suffer the greatest pain" it has ever experienced.

A commentary by its Uriminzokkiri propaganda website advised the Trump administration to "have a correct understanding of the actual power of the DPRK".

KELEMEN: It did seem so to many of us who have been watching this.

"This ban will eventually starve the regime of an additional $500 million or more in annual revenues", Haley said. A tougher initial U.S. draft was weakened to win the support of Pyongyang ally China and Russian Federation.

"This is a compromise in order to get everybody on board", French UN Ambassador Francois Delattre said of the draft ahead of the vote. "Make no mistake about it, our firmness today is our best antidote to the risk of war, to the risk of confrontation, and our firmness today is our best tool for a political solution tomorrow", he said.

USA ambassador Nikki Haley said Monday at the United Nations the tough new measures were a message to Pyongyang that "the world will never accept a nuclear-armed North Korea". The move comes in the wake of the North's sixth and most powerful nuclear detonation test on September 3. North Korea fired a missile created to carry a nuclear payload in what was likely the longest ever launch for the country.

Hydrogen bombs have a far larger yield than traditional weapons, meaning devices can be smaller while providing greater devastation.

The United States and its allies had been bracing for another long-range missile launch in time for the 69th anniversary of North Korea's founding on Saturday, but no fresh provocations were spotted while the North held numerous events to mark the holiday.
