North Korea lashes out over 'vicious' United Nations sanctions

North Korea lashes out over 'vicious' United Nations sanctions

"We don't take pleasure in further strengthening sanctions today".

The UN sanctions are an attempt to starve the country of fuel and income for its weapons programmes.

The UN Security Council agreed late on Monday to a new set of sanctions in response to Pyongyang's latest nuclear test, but stopped short of imposing an oil embargo that had been favoured by the United States.

Han Tae Song, North Korea's ambassador to the United Nations, said he "categorically rejected" what he called an "illegal resolution".

In an official statement it threatened to cause the U.S. "the greatest pain and suffering it had ever gone through in its entire history".

Peru does not have any diplomats in North Korea.

Meanwhile, Chinese Ambassador to the UN Liu Jieyi said Beijing hopes the United States would not seek regime change for North Korea or measures that would ensure the regime's collapse.

The initial text included a total ban on oil imports, a measure seen by some analysts as potentially destabilising for the regime.

North Korea's ambassador to Peru said Tuesday that Lima's decision to expel him was akin to "throwing gasoline on the fire" on the dispute over Pyongyang's nuclear tests that it would continue to pursue "without wavering".

"We are not looking for war". "The North Korean regime has not yet passed the point of no return". "The choice is theirs".

Féron considered a number of possibilities to explain the growth - from the state paying below market wages to North Korea simply burning through its reserves.

Nikki Haley, left, USA ambassador to the United Nations, and Liu Jieyi, right, China's ambassador to the United Nations, vote in favor of a Security Council resolution to impose fresh sanctions on North Korea over its latest nuclear test at the UN headquarters in NY on Monday.

Monday's resolution was the ninth one unanimously adopted by the United Nations since 2006. "The textile export ban in particular, combined with previous bans on coal, mineral, and seafood [exports], will have the effect of blocking over 90% of North Korea's export volumes", Lee said. It also bans the sale of condensates and natural gas liquids to the North. On 14 May 2017, North Korea tested what it said was a "newly developed ballistic rocket" capable of carrying a large nuclear warhead.

It also bans joint ventures with North Korean entities, except for non-profit public utility infrastructure projects.

The North claimed to have carried out a hydrogen bomb test.

The Nuclear Safety and Security Commission said Wednesday the discovery of xenon-133 isotope is linked to the North's bomb test conducted in its northeast on September 3.

Park Soo-hyun, the presidential spokesman added, "North Korea should stop testing the stern resolve of the worldwide community, for the only way to escape from diplomatic isolation and economic pressure is to return to the negotiating table for a complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization".

Frustrated US lawmakers called at a House hearing on Tuesday for a "supercharged" response to North Korea's nuclear and missile tests and said Washington should act alone if necessary to stiffen sanctions on China firms and any country doing business with Pyongyang.

However, he said that the United States, South Korea and other parties "should also avoid taking the actions that will further complicate the situation", urging a peaceful solution to the issue.

Apart from the US, China, and Russian Federation, the sanctions have also been lauded by South Korea who said that these bans are a proof that Pyongyang's defiance will continue isolating it from other nations.

The US has called the proposal insulting.
