European Union will apply United Nations sanctions against North Korea

Frustrated that China had not done more to rein in North Korea, the Trump administration was mulling new sanctions in July on small Chinese banks and other firms doing business with Pyongyang, two senior USA officials told Reuters. A limited oil embargo and a ban on textile imports were placed as part of the measures although the final resolution was watered down from the initial tougher proposal by the US.

The new resolution calls for firing 93,000 North Korean workers employed overseas when their contracts expire.

Still he says, it's "nice" to get a 15-0 vote.

Meanwhile, South Korea said it found a small amount of radioactivity in air samples collected days after the North's test.

"The forthcoming measures. will make the United States suffer the greatest pain it ever experienced in its history", North Korea's Ambassador to the UN Han Tae Song said on Tuesday. It came just one month after the Security Council made a decision to ban exports of coal, lead and seafood in response to North Korea's launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile in late July that experts believe puts a large chunk of the United States - including Chicago and Los Angeles - within range of Pyongyang's ever-improving weapons systems.

The paper said it should not be a complete stop in supply, and also pointed out the range of conditions under which a humanitarian disaster would not occur in North Korea. They can also fly a low, terrain-hugging route to better avoid radar, defense officials said.

"Unfortunately, the DPRK does not cease to constantly violate the Security Council resolutions, which inevitably leads to even bigger consequences for the country and its leadership", Permanent Representative of Kazakhstan in the UN Kairat Umarov said.

The United States also stepped away from insisting that the U.N. authorize use of military force to interdict North Korean vessels at sea that are suspected of smuggling banned components for its nuclear or ballistic missile programs.

Another senior administration official told Reuters any such "secondary sanctions" on Chinese banks and other companies were on hold for now to give Beijing time to show it was prepared to fully enforce sanctions.

Having given some support to United States sanctions in recent months, Chinese officials feel that the USA owes them at least a shot at diplomacy, though the Trump Administration appears to be resisting this effort. "And that's quite meaningful", said Mr Mnuchin.

"If China doesn't follow these sanctions, we will put additional sanctions on them and prevent them from accessing the U.S. and global dollar system, and that's quite meaningful", he told a conference in NY, broadcast on CNBC.

The internal documents were drafted in August by the North Korean Ministry of External Economic Affairs, which has jurisdiction over foreign investment in North Korea.

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the sanctions could reduce North Korean annual revenue by $500 million.
