North Korea sanctions 'not a big deal'

13 Septembre 2017

The sanctions include reducing North Korea's oil imports, and banning the country from importing natural gas and exporting textiles. Exports of copper, nickel, silver, zinc and the sale of statues were also banned.

In a decision backed by China and Russian Federation, the UNSC has put a ban on textile exports and has also restricted the shipment of oil products.

Though Beijing shares the United States opposition to North Korea's nuclear weapons and repeated calls for denuclearization, its fear of instability on the border carries higher priority.

If, he said, they'd imposed the full oil embargo and frozen Un's assets, it wouldn't give China anywhere to go in "trying to change the behavior of North Korea" while letting North Korea know that things could get worse - and not just in an abstract way.

It also followed a decision by Mexico last week to expel the North Korean ambassador on its territory.

The draft circulated by the United States last week called for a freeze on the assets of both the North Korean leader and his sister Kim Yo-jong, vice director of the Propaganda and Agitation Department of the Workers' Party.

The newspaper said a "dedicated ferry line" was launched between Russia's Far East and North Korea to accommodate heavy traffic.

It also bans joint ventures with North Korean entities, except for non-profit public utility infrastructure projects.

The watered-down resolution does not include sanctions the United States wanted on North Korea's national airline and the army.

"This ban will eventually starve the regime of an additional $500 million or more in annual revenues", she said. "And one of the reasons for that is that the North Korean economy is so primitive in the sense that sanctions would not have the kind of effect that they would have on developed countries", said Roh.

Pyongyang warned the United States on Monday that it would pay a "due price" for spearheading efforts on UN sanctions over its nuclear programme, which it said was part of "legitimate self-defensive measures".

Han rejected the resolution as "illegal and unlawful" and said Washington was "fired up for political, economic, and military confrontation".

"Historically we have seen these type of activities will continue despite the sanctions", Sun said.

A new special forces brigade dubbed Spartan 3000 has been designed by the South Korean Defense Ministry to "make Kim Jong-un fear for his life", a retired South Korean general said this week.

Park Soo-hyun, the presidential spokesman added, "North Korea should stop testing the stern resolve of the worldwide community, for the only way to escape from diplomatic isolation and economic pressure is to return to the negotiating table for a complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization".

Dr. John Nilsson-Wright, senior lecturer on Asian global relations at Cambridge University, had believed North Korea was still two to three years from miniaturizing a nuclear weapon to be carried on a long range missile, but the latest nuclear bomb test by North Korea's leader, and his threatening rhetoric about reducing Seoul and Washington to a "heap of ashes", showed Nilsson-Wright that North Korea's commitment to develop nuclear capabilities was as strong as ever and a cause for world alarm. The foreign ministry had said that if the U.S. "does rig up the illegal and unlawful 'resolution, '" it will have to face consequences.

Geng said that China "hopes that the contents of Resolution 2375 can be implemented in a comprehensive and complete manner".

The resolution fell short of measures sought by the Trump administration.
