NKorea rejects United Nations sanctions, says USA will suffer

North Korea has threatened the United States with the "greatest pain" it has ever suffered following new sanctions imposed by the United Nations.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (SHIN'-zoh AH'-bay) said Tuesday in Tokyo that he highly appreciates what he called "a remarkably tough sanctions resolution".

Merkel told Putin she supported efforts of the UN Security Council to rapidly adopt further sanctions against North Korea to make Pyongyang change its course, he added.

North Korea imports all the crude oil it consumes-some 520,000 tons a year-most of which comes from China.

"If it agrees to stop its nuclear program, it can reclaim its future ... if North Korea continues its risky path, we will continue with further pressure", said Haley, who credited a "strong relationship" between US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping for the successful resolution negotiations.

"However, it's just as well that the global community adopted this sanctions resolution by consensus", he said.

The United Nations Security Council unanimously stepped up sanctions against North Korea on Monday over the country's sixth and most powerful nuclear test conducted on September 3, imposing a ban on the country's textile exports and capping imports of crude oil.

North Korea has faced growing condemnation from around the world following its sixth and largest nuclear test this month which fuelled fears it could spark war. But it caps imports of crude oil at the level of the last 12 months, and it limits the import of refined petroleum products to 2 million barrels a year. And there's also a ban on new work permits for North Korean workers.

Kim Hyun-Wook of Seoul's Korea National Diplomatic Academy, predicted: "The sanctions will only provide North Korea with an excuse for further provocations, such as an ICBM launch".

Chinese Ambassador Liu Jieyi again called for talks "sooner rather than later".

Textile exports North Korea's largest economic sector that the Security Council had not previously restricted earned North Korea an average of United States dollars 760 million in the past three years. "This ban will eventually starve the regime of an additional $500 million or more in annual revenues", she said.

Earlier, North Korea said it would not accept any chastisement over its weapons development, which it says is vital to stave off the threat of an American invasion. They seem intent on developing their nuclear weapons capability to a point where maybe they'll have some leverage going into any negotiations.
