North Korea missile makers hit with USA sanctions

North Korea

North Korea's nuclear activities will continue as the new year approaches with the reclusive country's efforts to enhance its nuclear capabilities in the future, its state media said Saturday.

In a rare expression of unanimity ~ after the prevarication over Libya and Syria ~ the Security Council has tightened the screws on North Korea in the immediate aftermath of the latest intercontinental ballistic missile test.

The latest United Nations sanctions will sharply reduce North Korea's oil imports, force the expulsion of all North Korean workers employed overseas within 24 months, and crack down on ships smuggling embargoed material like coal to and from the country.

KCNA also threatened "revenge" against the USA for claiming North Korea is defying the terms of the Biological Weapons Convention, which bans the development, production and stockpiling of biological weapons. The country will "deal with the U.S.'s most ferocious declaration of war with fire surely and definitely", the report said.

The U.S. State Department did not immediately comment on the call. Trump's resolution was not ignored by the U.N. It was created through negotiations between the United States and China, North Korea's closest ally.

Industry sources say China still supplies about 3.8 million barrels of crude a year to North Korea via an aging pipeline.

Russian Federation has recently suggested it could be a "mediator" between Washington and Pyongyang.

JOEY MILLARJoo-il Kim said he spent four days inching towards the border

Baik noted it was the seventh time the U.S. Treasury has imposed unilateral sanctions against the North since the start of President Donald Trump's administration. But the latest tally indicates that Kim was focusing more on strengthening its military power in 2017, during which the country test-fired ballistic missiles 15 times and detonated its most powerful nuclear device to date.

The Joongang Ilbo Daily newspaper, citing an unnamed South Korean government official, reported on Tuesday that North Korea could also be preparing to launch a satellite into space.

In October, Deputy North Korean Ambassador to the UN Kim In-ryong, said that his nation meant to develop "practical satellites that can contribute to the economic development and improvement of the people's living".

Despite their criticisms of the United Nations, both Trump and Haley praised the Security Council's toughened sanctions.

"The U.S. persistent moves against the DPRK in political, economic, military, diplomatic and all other fields till the end of this year could not stop even a moment the advance of the DPRK confident in the victory of its cause", the KCNA report said.
