Kim Jong-un praises nuclear test — North Korea

It also froze the assets of three government agencies, including a military one. It was reportedly revised for winning support of China and Russia.

In the western Japanese city of Osaka - home to the country's largest population of ethnic Koreans - few are willing to talk publicly about North Korea, and those that do have mixed views on Pyongyang's actions.

Sanctions can usually range from "comprehensive economic and trade sanctions to more targeted measures such as arms embargoes, travel bans, and financial or commodity restrictions", the UN says. Despite these amendments, the measures implemented Monday are still the strongest sanctions ever brought against the reclusive regime.

The sanctions attempt is now reaching the highest order.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un attends an art performance dedicated to nuclear scientists and technicians at the People's Theatre in Pyongyang.

Leader Kim Jong-un called the country's latest weapon test "a great victory" during a banquet held in Pyongyang on September 9 which coincided with the 69th anniversary of the founding of the country.

China has been steadily increasing the pressure on Pyongyang by suspending mineral imports, closing border crossings, and limiting North Korean labor imports.

In another commentary, Rodong Sinmun said the US would continue receiving "gift packages in different shapes and sizes" as long as it sticks to what it said was a hostile policy against the North.

Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg earlier refused to say whether an attack on the US territory of Guam would be covered by Article five, in which an attack on one member of the alliance is considered an attack on all.

The resolution instead bans trade in textiles, cuts off natural gas shipments to North Korea, places a ceiling on deliveries of refined oil products and caps the crude oil shipments at current levels.

Lee Soo-hyuck, a South Korean lawmaker who has been his country's representative in talks with Pyongyang, appeared to agree with Choi's analysis, telling the Post that "If there's a total embargo, that would be a good step".

And some analysts believe that Moscow is also making a bid to become a power player in future negotiations with North Korea over its nuclear program outside of the UN. Nearly 80 per cent went to China.

"This ban will eventually starve the regime of an additional $500 million or more in annual revenues", she said.

"We do not take pleasure in further strengthening sanctions today". "I'm not sure how much time they're going to give China to implement a resolution like this".

The Trump administration has already made some moves this year, hitting a Chinese bank and other Chinese and Russian entities with sanctions.

"The US has published Resolution 2375 of the UN Security Council, coming down on our hydrogen bomb test, and is trying to bring to a full halt our economic development", the ambassador said.

It was the eighth series of sanctions imposed on North Korea since it first tested a nuclear device in 2006.

Chinese officials have privately expressed fears that an oil embargo could risk causing massive instability in its neighbor. Currently, North Korea has close to 100,000 people earning wages abroad.
