U.S. pushes for the strongest possible sanctions on North Korea

Nikkei wrote that the draft sanctions resolution on North Korea that the U.S. is pushing to adopt at the UN Security Council includes a ban on the supply of oil to the Kim regime, a ban on the export of North Korean workers, and a ban on the import of the North’s textiles. The paper wrote that if implemented fully, the measures will deal a major blow to the DPRK, and that the U.S. will urge China, which continues to back North Korea in all three areas, to agree to the adoption of this resolution that imposes the “toughest sanctions.”
