North Korea warns US of 'greatest pain' if Trump pursues oil sanctions threat
After the United Nations slapped fresh sanctions on North Korea, following its sixth and most unsafe nuclear test - now North Korea has threatened the US with the "greatest pain" it has ever suffered.
The North has as many as 147,600 workers in various foreign countries, according to estimates from the Korea Institute for National Unification, a think tank affiliated with the South Korean government.
The German leader said that was "a long but important time of diplomacy" that ultimately had a "good end" previous year, referring to when the deal was implemented.
"The forthcoming measures by DPRK (North Korea) will make the U.S. suffer the greatest pain it has ever experienced in its history", he told a disarmament conference in the Swiss city.
North Korea a week ago had claimed of successfully detonating a hydrogen bomb - the sixth nuclear test carried out by the country and its largest - which possibly triggered a 6.3-magnitude artificial quake.
One company, Velmur, is officially a real estate company in Singapore, but Justice accused it of "facilitating the laundering of funds for North Korea financial facilitators and sanctioned entities", in a complaint filed last month, which notes that Velmur lacks a headquarters, offices and a website, and "bears the hallmarks of a front company".
On Tuesday, the resolution was passed unanimously after North Korea's allies Russian Federation and China agreed to softer sanctions than those proposed by the U.S.
"That's a problem between us and the United States", Kim said. "As long as we have Kim Jong Un, we'll survive". This is an area that the Trump administration has been trying to target because North Korea makes a lot of money by sending what's effectively slave labor overseas.
MBC, a South Korean TV network, reported that Kim Jong Un may be utilizing sophisticated means of evading the sanctions, including banks that appear to be operated by Chinese companies but which actually have North Korean owners.
China has sought to play a mediating role, backing progressively tougher sanctions like a ban on coal exports while proposing that both sides freeze hostilities and return to talks.
The UN security council has unanimously agreed on implementing sanctions on North Korea, thus imposing a ban on the country's textile exports and placing a ceiling on the country's imports of crude oil.
It's unclear if China will back the harsh measures against their hard neighbor.
And then China's ambassador at the time was on a Security Council trip to Africa, so he had to rush back to negotiate this.
"My delegation condemns in the strongest terms, and categorically rejects, the latest illegal and unlawful UN Security Council resolution", Song said. What are diplomats saying about that?
Over the weekend, leaders in France and Germany waded into the escalating crisis.
She said an agreement similar to the Iranian nuclear deal struck under the Obama administration could be the solution.
