We've got a long way to go on North Korea: Bishop

North Korea was condemned globally for conducting its sixth nuclear test on Sept 3, which it said was of an advanced hydrogen bomb.

China's UN Ambassador Liu Jieyi called on North Korea to "take seriously the expectations and will of the worldwide community" that it halt its nuclear and ballistic missile development, and called on all parties to remain "cool-headed" and not stoke tensions.

A previously circulated version of the United States resolution called for a full ban on exports of oil to North Korea and an asset freeze on Kim, the Worker's Party and government of North Korea.

The UN Security Council (UNSC) has unanimously approved a fresh round of tougher sanctions against North Korea for its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes.

It warned that if Washington does push through its quote-"illegal and unlawful" sanctions, Pyongyang would make sure the US pays its "due price".

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is "ready to use a form of ultimate means", Mr Han said, without elaborating.

"The world will witness how the DPRK tames the USA gangsters by taking a series of actions tougher than they have ever envisaged", the unnamed spokesman said.

"The DPRK has developed and perfected the super-powerful thermonuclear weapon as a means to deter the ever-increasing hostile moves and nuclear threat of the U.S. and defuse the danger of nuclear war looming over the Korean peninsula and the region", the statement read.

The U.N. Security Council on Monday unanimously voted to boost sanctions on North Korea, which U.S. President Donald Trump has described as "nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen".

A new proposal by the United Nations Security Council sets a cap on oil exports to North Korea, but does not block them altogether.

Passing a resolution at the UN Security Council allows the global community, and particularly its five veto-wielding permanent members (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States) to demonstrate unity, to deliver a form of collective admonishment to the state at hand.

Peru's foreign ministry declined TO comment.

The resolution, adopted in response to Pyongyang's sixth and strongest nuclear test explosion, bans North Korea from importing all natural gas liquids and condensates.

On Tuesday Trump told reporters at the start of a meeting with Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak that he was pleased Malaysia no longer did business with North Korea, before adding that he had just discussed the United Nations vote with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. On Thursday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said the security council should "make further responses" but didn't elaborate.

The firm said previously it had found a connection between Pyongyang and the WannaCry attack from May and June, which affected more than 300,000 computers worldwide.

"We now will implement new United Nations sanctions as we have always done before", Mogherini said.

North Korea commemorated the 69th anniversary of its founding on Saturday, holding large patriotic displays of dancing and devotion to the Kim family. He has also cast doubt on the chance that negotiations could lead Kim to drop his nuclear ambitions.

The standoff is also spilling over into the business relationship between South Korea and China.

South Korean politicians are divided over redeployment.

The main highlights of the new resolution would be a full ban on oil exports to North Korea, a full ban on purchasing North Korean textiles and a full ban on the country's laborers generating earnings overseas. And it wants Pyongyang to stop nuclear and missile tests.

Meanwhile, Japanese broadcaster NHK cited a Chinese source as saying that China's four state-run banks - the Bank of China, China Construction Bank, Agricultural Bank of China and Industrial and Commercial Bank of China - told all North Koreans including diplomats to withdraw their money by August 31 and halted all further transactions with them.
