North Korea tells UN they will make US 'suffer the greatest pain'

Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon said Tuesday it's fortunate that the U.N. Security Council unanimously adopted new sanctions on North Korea even though the resolution was watered down from its original draft.

The resolution bans the regime from importing all natural gas liquids and condensates, and caps Pyongyang's imports of crude oil at the level of the last 12 months. President Trump so far has said this is not the time to talk, but his administration has been sending a lot of mixed signals, confusing signals about this.

During negotiations on Sunday, the US conjured up a new draft of the sanctions resolution as the initial draft imposed a complete oil embargo and a partial naval blockade, to rally China and Russia into supporting the cause.

Saying "time is running out", Representative Ed Royce, the Republican chairman of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee said the United States should give Chinese banks and companies "a choice between doing business with North Korea or the United States". It has apparently been revised to win support from veto-holding China and Russia.

Strict censorship keeps public debate at bay, but there are signs of growing unease among experts and public alike, a growing number of voices pointing out that North Korea is getting away with undermining Chinese national interest. "Enough is enough", an exasperated Nikki Haley, US Representative to the United Nations, summed up accumulating US frustration over the unprecedented, game-changing North Korean provocations. Wages at textiles factories grew tenfold around 2010 when North Korea was experimenting with economic reforms, according to Green, so people suddenly went from earning 30 North Korean won to 300 won. We have tremendous leverage to force China to do this.

The DPRK is ready and willing to use any form of ultimate means. "However, we have been able to acquire whatever we wanted".

French envoy to the UN, Francois Delattre said: "We are facing not a regional but a global threat, not a virtual but an immediate threat, not a serious but an existential threat".

The United States says the shield, more than a decade in the planning, is needed to protect against so-called rogue states, a term U.S. officials have used to refer to North Korea and Iran.

Another challenge is that clothes can be partly made in China and partly in North Korea with a "Made in China" label attached to the finished product. The measures also clamp down on joint ventures, which could stifle the North's ability to trade and to acquire capital and know-how.

The move came amid international outrage over the pariah state's sixth nuclear test - its most powerful to date - earlier this month and its intercontinental ballistic missile launch in July. China's mild response was particularly striking, as Pyongyang's nuclear test was a clear affront, coming just as Xi was about to deliver a major speech at the China-hosted BRICS summit.

The United States and its allies argue that tougher sanctions will pile pressure on Kim's regime to come to the negotiating table to discuss an end to its nuclear and missile tests.
