United Nations passes fresh sanctions on North Korea

United Nations passes fresh sanctions on North Korea”

On Friday, the United States mission to the UN announced that Washington would call a UN Security Council meeting on Monday to vote on a new draft resolution, set to tighten sanctions on North Korea.

The resolution is created to accomplish six major goals: cap North Korea's oil imports, ban textile exports, end additional overseas laborer contracts, suppress smuggling efforts, stop joint ventures with other nations and sanction designated North Korean government entities, according to a U.S. official familiar with negotiations.

"That is why we have offered to be helpful in the search for new ways to de-escalate the situation", spokesman Steffen Seibert said during a news conference. "But to achieve such a solution, the pressure on North Korea must be increased".

If implemented the sanctions will be the toughest-ever yet on the North Korean regime.

More modifications are inevitable and it's unclear if a vote will take place Monday as the USA has sought, the diplomat said.

Before speaking with Putin over the phone, Merkel, who is running for re-election this month, had spoken with Trump, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, French President Emmanuel Macron and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

While the US, UK and France are united on the latest proposal, it's unclear whether Russian Federation and China - the other veto-holding members of the United Nations Security Council - will back the text as it stands, said the diplomat, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private. However, the restrictive measures failed to prevent North Korea from conducting further tests.

"If it agrees to stop its nuclear program, it can reclaim its future".
