Recommended Posts

 ESET    1,190

UN Security Council is expected to consider a draft resolution on toughening sanctions against the DPRK in response to the recent missile tests at 15:00 hrs EDT or 19:00 hrs UTC, a Western diplomatic source told TASS on Friday.

The draft envisions a ban on the exports of a range of minerals and products to the DPRK, including coal, iron, lead, and seafoods. The text also spells out other restrictions like precisely targeted measures against the individuals and manufacturers linked to the DPRK nuclear and missile programs.

Reuters quoted U.S. estimations earlier a full observance of these restrictive measures could slash Pyongyang's foreign currency revenues, currently standing at $ 3 billion, by $ 1 billion. A source speaking to the agency claimed Russia and China might support the U.S.-drafted resolution.

US pushes for new UN sanctions to slash North Korean export revenue

A new UN Security Council resolution drafted by the US aims to ban North Korean trade in coal, iron, lead and seafood. There was reportedly "high confidence" among that the resolution would be backed by Russia and China.

The UN Security Council is due to vote on Saturday over whether to toughen sanctions against North Korea, depriving the reclusive state of around $1 billion (850 million euro) in export revenue.

The draft resolution, which was circulated to the 15-member Security Council on Friday, would also halt countries from increasing the number of North Korean laborers working abroad, ban any new joint business ventures with the North Korean regime and ban fresh investment into such existing ventures.

Finally, the North's Foreign Trade Bank, the country's main clearing house, would be added to the UN's sanctions blacklist.

Southeast Asia issues strong rebuke, warning to North Korea

 

Southeast Asia’s top diplomats slammed North Korea with a sharp rebuke Saturday over its intercontinental ballistic missile tests and admonished Pyongyang to comply with its duty of helping avert conflicts as a member of Asia’s biggest security forum.

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations foreign ministers, however, were split on an American proposal to suspend Pyongyang from the ASEAN Regional Forum, a 27-nation bloc that includes North Korea and its bitter adversaries the U.S., South Korea and Japan.

The ASEAN ministers reiterated in a joint statement their grave concerns over the escalation of tensions on the Korean Peninsula due to the North’s two ICBM tests last month, saying the launches threaten world stability. The ministers traditionally issue a communique containing their diverse concerns, and their issuance of a separate statement on North Korea’s missile tests and nuclear weapons program reflects their deep worries about the issue.

“These developments seriously threaten peace, security and stability in the region and the world,” the ministers said in their statement. They urged the North to immediately and fully comply with its obligations under U.N. Security Council resolutions.

Why do I feel doubtful?

Even though both of them impose sanctions against NK, I´ve doubts it will change view of Lil Kim.
