U.S. lawmakers want tougher N Korea response

Christy Curtis | 15 September, 2017, 00:45

Experts believe North Korea's weapons programme has made rapid progress under leader Kim Jong-un. "Let's vent our spite with mobilisation of all retaliation means which have been prepared till now", it said. Let's reduce the United States mainland into ashes and darkness.

Trump appeared to be downplaying the impact of UNSC Resolution 2375, which is considered a watered-down version of the original USA draft in response to the North's sixth nuclear test, which called for a complete oil embargo.

But the KAPPC statement accused Tokyo of "dancing to the tune of the US" and warned of a "telling blow" against Japan, noting the missile test that overflew the island nation last month.

South Korea conducted its first live-fire drill for an advanced air-launched cruise missile that would strengthen its pre-emptive strike capability against North Korea in the event of crisis. The intrusions followed previous efforts by operators with ties to North Korea to target "bank and the global financial system", the firm said.

The North's foreign ministry condemned the new measures "in the strongest terms", calling them a "full-scale economic blockade" driven by the USA and aimed at "suffocating" its state and people.

In late August, North Korea launched a ballistic missile over northern Japan, in a move that the Korean Central News Agency said was part of "muscle-flexing" to protest annual military exercises being held between the US and South Korea.

"The best deterrence we can have, next to having our own nukes, is to make Kim Jong Un fear for his life", retired South Korean Lt. Gen. Shin Won-sik told The Times.

North Korea said its test on Sept 3 was of an advanced hydrogen bomb and it was its most powerful nuclear blast by far.

The United States sought to ban all oil exports to North Korea, but the new U.N. sanctions did not include such a measure.

Under the sanctions - considered the toughest yet against Pyongyang - the annual export of oil and fuel products to the country would be cut from about 8.5 million barrels to two million.

"The North Korean regime presents an imminent danger to world peace, and it is encouraging that the permanent members of the Security Council have been able to reach agreement on a package that should de-escalate tensions and open the way for a diplomatic solution such as that proposed by the government of Germany".

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, told the Security Council after the vote: "We don't take pleasure in further strengthening sanctions today".
