Under the latest Security Council resolution of Aug 5, measures were taken in an attempt to restrict the flow of funds for the North's nuclear programme by slashing its $3-billion in annual export revenue by a third. Kim Jong Un having ballistic missiles melded with nuclear warheads would be a significant threat to the region and the United States.
"I think we have to be honest".
Three hundred thousand casualties don't sound so bad if they were to eliminate a real threat.
We write to express our profound concern over the statements made by President Trump that dramatically increased tensions with North Korea and raised the specter of nuclear war. The good news is that such thoughts have been temporarily placed "on hold" since China and Russian Federation combined with the rest of the U.N. Security Council in issuing a series of sanctions to North Korea for its continued testing of ballistic missiles.
The panel is also looking into other forms of revenue, including the North's leasing of its embassy properties for commercial purposes in countries such as Bulgaria, Germany, Poland and Romania.

"Until or unless North Korea demonstrates a willingness to back down from the path that they're on right now, which is the development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles that can threaten Japan, can threaten Korea, can threaten the Unites States and quite frankly can threaten China, then I would not recommend and have not recommended that we dial back military exercises", he said.
China says the system affects its own security because of its powerful radar and that it will do nothing to ease tension with North Korea.
The ministry quoted Lavrov as saying tensions could rise again with the US and South Korea set to launch large-scale military exercises on August 21.
