USA proposes United Nations ban on oil to North Korea and asset freeze

Mr Rodman said he has visited North Korea "six or seven" times and gave an insight into what the pair get up to. North Korean labourers would also be banned from working overseas.

Mr Morgan asked the former Chicago Bulls player about Mr Jong-un and begged him to take him to North Korea to visit the supreme leader.

"F$3 or some reason, we have a big issue with North Korea."

The proposal was rejected by the USA and South Korea.

Asked why he doesn't think he's a unsafe leader, Dennis said: 'I'm not defending the marshal of North Korea.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in urged Russian President Vladimir Putin this week to back stronger sanctions on the North, including an oil cutoff.

But the U.S. is expected to face opposition from China and Russian Federation, which both supply oil to North Korea and wield vetoes at the Security Council.

President Donald Trump told Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe this weekend that the U.S. is ready to use the "full range" of capabilities, including nuclear arsenal, at its disposal in dealing with North Korea.

The US has also chose to waive restrictions on the size and range of South Korean ballistic missiles, allowing it to develop and drop bunker-busting bombs on the underground headquarters of the North Korean leadership in Pyongyang.

The state-owned Air Koryo airline would also be hit with an assets freeze, as would the Korean People's Army, the ruling party's central military commission and seven other government or party departments. Both the countries have been pushing for an alternative solution.

It would also prohibit North Korea from being part of any joint ventures or cooperative agreements. My whole mission, my whole goal in going over there was to bring sports to North Korea.

It reiterates the importance of maintaining peace and stability in northeast Asia and the council's commitment "to a peaceful, diplomatic and political solution to the situation", and it welcomes efforts to resolve the situation through dialogue.

The bid for the toughest penalties yet against North Korea comes despite renewed warnings against such moves by the leaders of China and Russian Federation, which have veto power in the Security Council.
