United Kingdom ambassador weighs in on UN's new North Korea sanctions

United Kingdom ambassador weighs in on UN's new North Korea sanctions

George Lopez, a former member of the UN Security Council panel of experts for sanctions on North Korea, said that the United States should seek unity of message with China and Russian Federation in addition to a unanimous vote on sanctions.

It also bans all textile exports and prohibits all countries from authorising new work permits for North Korean workers - two key sources of hard currency.

North Korea said its September 3 test was of an advanced hydrogen bomb and was its most powerful by far.

Speaking at the UN Conference on Disarmament in Geneva, Switzerland, Han Tae Song reiterated his country's claim that "forthcoming measures" will "make the US suffer the greatest pain" in response to resolution 2375.

North Korea has made rapid progress in its nuclear and missile programmes despite multiple sets of United Nations sanctions, and Go Myong-Hyun at the Asan Institute of Policy Studies said the latest measures were "not enough to cause pain".

But while the package of sanctions will reduce oil and fuel exports to North Korea by about a third, it stops short of a full oil embargo. But China said after Monday's vote it supported the resolution.

Today we are saying that the world will never accept a nuclear-armed North Korea.

South Korea welcomed the resolution while Japan´s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the sanctions were much stronger than earlier measures. However the new sanctions fall short of what Mr.Trump would have liked - an oil import ban or worldwide asset freeze on the government and leader Kim Jong-un.

The US "will face an unprecedentedly resolute counteraction it cannot hold control of" in response to new sanctions, state media channel KCNA said.

General Shin Won-sik, South Korean's former top military strategist, said: "The best deterrence we can have, next to having our own nukes, is to make Kim Jong-un fear for his life".

The UN sanctions passed against North Korea on Monday bans textile exports and restricts shipments of oil products to Pyongyang.

North Korea has warned it would retaliate against new sanctions, and experts say the reprisal could come in the form of a cyberattack.

A South Korean presidential office spokesman said on Tuesday: "North Korea needs to realise that a reckless challenge against global peace will only bring about even stronger sanctions against them".

The U.N. has adopted multiple resolutions against North Korea since its first nuclear test explosion in 2006, banning it from arms trading and curbing exports of commodities it heavily relies on for revenue.

But despite the United States assessment that these are the strongest measures ever imposed on North Korea, some experts said that their impact will only be effective if paired with additional sanctions.

Beyond the Dollars 1.3 billion in annual revenues they would cut from North Korea, new maritime authorities would help them stop them from obtaining funds by smuggling coal and other prohibited materials around the world by ship, the top American diplomat said.
