The government said that the international community’s approval of the toughest sanctions ever reflects its united front in dealing with Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programs, source from the Yonhap. “(We think) the move is expected to positively affect North Korea’s nuclear issue,” a ministry official said. The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Monday unanimously adopted the sanctions resolution over North Korea’s sixth nuke test that includes a freeze on its imports of crude oil at current levels of 4 million barrels a year and a cap on imports of refined petroleum products at 2 million barrels annually. They also included a ban on exports of North Korean textiles, a key source of revenue for the regime and restrictions on the use of North Korean workers overseas. The official said that the sanctions are likely to deal a painful blow to North Korea as the scope of the penalties was expanded, but he declined to comment on specifics.
