DPRK Calls New UN Sanctions 'Infringement on Sovereignty'

Wang said China urges North Korea not to take actions that run against the Security Council's resolution.

UN Security Council is expected to consider a draft resolution on toughening sanctions against the DPRK in response to the recent missile tests at 15:00 hrs EDT or 19:00 hrs UTC, a Western diplomatic source told TASS on Friday. North Korea s irresponsible and careless acts have just proved to be quite costly to the regime.

Trump said China and Russian Federation voted with the U.S. to pass what he called "the single largest economic sanctions package ever" on North Korea.

At present, the proposal is the most practical, viable and reasonable solution, he said, adding that it can not only de-escalate the tension of the peninsula, but also address various parties' urgent safety concerns, and provide a way out for the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.

The "double suspension" strategy calls on North Korea to end its nuclear and missile tests, while South Korea and the United Nations are supposed to end their joint military drills to ease tensions on the Korean peninsula. "Until then, this resolution and prior ones will be implemented to the fullest to maximize pressure on North Korea to change its ways", she said. These measures target Pyongyang's principal exports, imposing a total ban on all exports of coal (North Korea's largest source of external revenue), iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore and seafood.

According to Wang, there are two major components of the resolution - one is to make a necessary response to North Korea's constant missile launch activities, which have violated UN resolutions, in a bid to check the Communist nation's nuclear and missile development programmes.

Previously these items could be exported for livelihood purposes, for a limited amount.

The U.N. Security Council approved new USA -drafted sanctions against the DPRK Saturday, which are estimated to total more than US$1 billion.

The council also made a decision to prohibit member states from opening new joint ventures or cooperative entities with the DPRK entities and individuals, or expand existing joint ventures through additional investments.

The Council also designated several additional individuals for a travel ban and assets freeze, as well as designating entities for an assets freeze.

On the political front, the Council calls for the resumption of the Six-Party Talks and reiterated its support for the commitments set forth in the Joint Statement of September 19, 2005 issued by China, North Korea, Japan, South Korea, Russian, and the U.S.
