UN Security Council Unanimously Approves New North Korea Sanctions

UN Security Council Unanimously Approves New North Korea Sanctions”

It no longer proposes blacklisting Kim and reduces sanctions on oil and gas, a draft reviewed by Reuters shows but still proposes a ban on textile exports.

North Korea conducted a nuclear test last week and claimed it was a hydrogen bomb which could be strapped into a nuclear missile.

The U.N. Security Council has unanimously approved new sanctions on North Korea in a watered-down resolution without an oil import ban or global asset freeze on the government and leader Kim Jong Un that the Trump administration wanted.

The US has called for a vote on Monday on new United Nations sanctions. South Korea's military said Sunday that North Korea is believed to have conducted its sixth nuclear test after it detected a strong natural disaster, hours after Pyongyang claimed that its leader has inspected a hydrogen bomb meant for a new intercontinental ballistic missile.

The North's foreign ministry spokesman said the USA was "going frantic" to manipulate the Security Council over Pyongyang's nuclear test, which it said was part of "legitimate self-defensive measures".

"The DPRK has developed and perfected the super-powerful thermo-nuclear weapon as a means to deter the ever-increasing hostile moves and nuclear threat of the USA and defuse the danger of nuclear war looming over the Korean peninsula and the region".
