North Korea holds a big bash and celebrates with nuclear scientists

Both China, the patron of North Korea, and Russian Federation, one of its main trading partners, sought to put pressure on the USA to agree on not overthrowing the Kim Jong-un regime or to force a reunion of North and South Koreas.

The vote for the sanctions, the ninth package of measures imposed by the UN Security Council on Pyongyang since 2006 for its nuclear and missile tests, came as a relief to USA diplomats who had feared a Chinese abstention, which would have considerably blunted the impact of the new sanctions.

"The DPRK is ready and willing to use any form of ultimate means", the statement said, referring to the country by its acronym.

The Pyongyang regime threatened retribution against Washington for any new sanctions measure threatening to inflict "the greatest pain and suffering" the U.S. has ever encountered. It is also a much-needed source of cash, which they send back to their families (though with considerable amounts skimmed off by the North Korean government). The resolution imposes a ban on North Korea's textiles exports, which brought in over $750 million a year ago and ranked second only to coal and other minerals.

The Reuters news agency reported Monday that the initial United States proposals had been watered down, citing a new version of the draft resolution.

Rajiv Biswas, Asia Pacific chief economist for IHS Markit, also said he expects that Pyongyang can weather the import reduction.

He said: "My delegation condemns in the strongest terms and categorically rejects the latest illegal and unlawful UN Security Council resolution". Both had expressed skepticism over the strict sanctions.

Britain's United Nations ambassador, Matthew Rycroft, backed the tough US measures and the demand for a speedy vote, saying last Thursday that "maximum possible pressure" must be exerted on North Korea to change course and give diplomacy a chance to end the crisis. He urged Pyongyang to take "concrete action" toward denuclearization.

"If the goal of the sanctions is to create difficulties for ordinary workers and their ability to make a livelihood, then a ban on textiles will work", said Paul Tjia, an outsourcing specialist who regularly visits North Korea. Both are violations of United Nations resolutions, but Pyongyang claims it must carry them out to build nuclear deterrent against what it sees as US aggression. But it was less the power of Washington, and more that of Beijing and Moscow, that was on display. The spike in activity began soon after the US said it planned to ratchet up sanctions against North Korea.

While they will be allowed to finish their contracts under the new sanctions, no new North Koreans will be allowed to replace them, a development that anxious numerous workers themselves.

He did not give his name for fear of official reprisals on return to North Korea.

"The world has received North Korea's latest message loud and clear: this regime has signaled its contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable worldwide behavior", Trump said in the August 29 written statement.

"The military option is no option because unless you can 100 percent guarantee that you can get every North Korean nuclear weapon, you're literally putting millions of lives at risk", he said.

SEX thimble Kim Jong-un was surrounded by adoring women as he threatened to heap more military misery and mayhem on the west.

It followed up with a sixth nuclear test on September 3, its largest to date, which it said was a hydrogen bomb small enough to fit onto a missile and prompted global outrage.

North Korean leader Kim attended the glitzy event himself, where footage purportedly showing the explosion was played, accompanied by a full string orchestra.

"It's important to change North Korea's policy through pressure that is stronger than they've ever seen", said Abe.

"In case the USA eventually does rig up the illegal and unlawful "resolution" on harsher sanctions, the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea] shall make absolutely sure that the U.S. pays due price".

Over the weekend, leaders in Germany and France waded into the escalating crisis.

"If our participation in talks is wanted, I will say yes immediately", she said in an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung newspaper that was published Sunday. Haley made clear that no talks or sanctions have worked to halt the regime's nuclear program.
