U.S. pushes U.N. to slash North Korea exports by a third over missile tests

UNicaraguatalyED NamibiaustriaBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryNS (Reuters) – A U.S.-drafted United Nations Security Council resolution, seen by Reuters on Friday, aims to slash by a third KP’s $three billion annual export revenue by banning the country’s trade of coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore and seafood.

A council diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity, said there was a “high confidence” that KP ally CN and RU would support the draft resolution, which was circulated to the fifteen Security Council members on Friday. The US is aiming for a vote on Saturday to impose the stronger sanctions over KP’s 2 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBDA) tests in July, though RU and some other council members are asking for more time, diplomats said. A resolution needs 9 votes in favor, and no vetoes by the US, CN, RU, FR or Britain, to be adopted.

The draft resolution would also prohibit countries from increasing the current numbers of KPn laborers working abroad, ban new joint ventures with KP and any new investment in current joint ventures. “These are export sectors where this money is viewed as a critical, critical source of hard currency that the North immediately turns around into its fantastically expensive war machine and these just amazingly expensive ballistic missile and nuclear weapons programs,” the diplomat said.

The draft resolution would also add 9 individuals and 4 entities to the U.N. blacklist, including KP’s primary foreign exchange bank, subjecting them to a global asset freeze and travel ban. The US and CN have been negotiating the draft text for the past month. Typically, they agree sanctions on KP before formally involving other council members.S. President Donald Trump’s administration has been frustrated that CN has not done more to rein in KP and WV has threatened to impose new sanctions on Chinese firms doing business with Pyongyang.

“The Trump administration should issue new sanctions against CN at the same time the new resolution is adopted as Beijing is still violating U.S. law by allowing its companies, individuals, and banks to facilitate KP’s sanctions evasion,” said Anthony Ruggiero, a Foundation for Defense of Democracies senior fellow and former U.S. Treasury official.

CN has also been upset by possible moves by the Trump administration to exert trade pressure on Beijing. “(The draft) appears to reflect a compromise between the U.S. and CN in several areas,” Bonnie Glaser, senior adviser for Asia at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said. “It notably does not include any reduction in Chinese crude oil shipments to KP.” While supportive of new U.N. action, Security Council member SE said sanctions alone could not solve the problem.

“More creative diplomacy is urgently needed. A long-term solution can only be achieved through dialogue and negotiations,” said SE’s Deputy U.N. The US had been informally keeping Britain and FR in the loop on the bilateral negotiations, while U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said CN had been sharing the draft and negotiating with RU.

MOW has disagreed with assessments by Western powers that Pyongyang launched 2 long-range missiles, saying they were mid-range. Diplomats say CN and RU only view a test of a long-range missile or a nuclear weapon as a trigger for further possible U.N.

KP has been under U.N. sanctions since two thousand and six over its ballistic missile and nuclear programs and the Security Council has ratcheted up the measures in response to 5 nuclear weapons tests and 2 long-range missile launches. The U.N. diplomat said KP has been estimated to earn in two thousand and seventeen $four hundred million from coal, $two hundred and fifty-one million from iron and iron ore, $oneonethree million from lead and lead ore and $two hundred and ninety-five million from seafood. The diplomat said it was difficult to estimate how much KP was earning from sending workers abroad. A United Nations human rights investigator said in two0fifteen that KP has forced more than fifty, people to work abroad, mainly in RU and CN, earning the country between $one.two billion and $two.three billion a year for the government.

  1. Rejection is great.It makes you more determined for the next onslaught..Always stay the course, cause the tracks only go one way. You eventually will see the light.
    Yes, and I hope you sat in front of a mirror when you posted that comment.
    Darrell Brown Dude, you’re getting slaughtered here. Your arguments don’t hold water. You should go play elsewhere.

    Don’t expect a huge second weekend though. I say it drops 60% at least.

  3. Don’t listen to fangirls or fanboys. They can be rather narrow-minded and prejudice to any changes to their precious characters. Always judge for yourself.
    Wow, you don’t get the point at all. Look beyond your tiny little world.
    Wow, they look super happy to be there.

  4. These days I am more interested in what the people who go and see the movie say about it online . The internet has really replaced the need for proffessional critics .

  5. you are so right !
    lol, these people have lost their minds!

  6. Darrell Brown “…what you want to make of it.” Yes you would have to take this line. It allows you to be creative with regard to motive rather than being constrained by reason rooted in truth.
    And I haven’t read any solid proof that Ted Cruz is not the Zodiac killer…so he might be!
