North Korea would face greater isolation: Kang

North Korea would face greater isolation: Kang

The sanctions could further choke North Korea's struggling economy by slashing its $3 billion annual export revenue by a third. The regime threatened "strategic" and "physical" actions against the US, which spearheaded the sanctions.

China will pay the biggest price from the new United Nations sanctions against North Korea because of its close economic relationship with the country, but will always enforce the resolutions, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said.

"We will be monitoring that carefully and certainly having conversations with any and all that we see who may not be fully embracing not just the spirit of those sanctions but the operational execution of those sanctions", Tillerson said.

South Korea and Japan need to communicate more often in the face of missile and nuclear program of Pyongyang, South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said.

There was no direct reaction from North Korea to the remarks but in a statement after the USA secretary of state made his comments, Pyongyang responded robustly to the new sanctions by saying it would exact "thousands-fold revenge" on America.

Chelsea vs. Burnley: Highlights and recap
Antonio Conte's side steadied themselves after conceding, but an bad five minutes before halftime saw Burnley triple their lead. Turns out Morata can play, and his diving header met a classy bit of playmaking from Willian to make it 3-1 in the 69th minute.

China has repeatedly said it was committed to enforcing increasingly tough United Nations resolutions on North Korea, though it has also said what it terms "normal" trade and ordinary North Koreans should not be affected.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in Manila today that North Korea could send the "best signal" that it wants to resume talks by ceasing its test launches of ballistic missiles.

The sanctions, which target North Korea's foreign currency earnings, ban its exports of coal, coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore and seafood.

Even with new United Nations sanctions in place meant to drive Pyongyang back to the table, conditions still aren't ripe for talks, USA diplomats said.

Though Tillerson has emphasized the Trump administration's willingness to sit down with North Korea for negotiations, he's said that won't happen until the North agrees to abandon its nuclear aspirations.

Australia, Japan, and the USA also urged ASEAN member states "to maximize pressure on North Korea".

That diplomatic concession led to speculation that Tillerson and Ri Yong Ho of North Korea, attending their first meeting together, might actually meet.

During the ASEAN Regional Forum - the only remaining global forum North Korea sits in outside of the United Nations - the reclusive state aired its side and urged the bloc to be "impartial and practical" in the decades-long standoff. "Though at the same time he'll be the main focus of the press who will hang on his every word to determine North Korea's future plans for its nuclear and missile development as well as Kim Jong-un's policy directions".

"It was a good outcome", Tillerson said Sunday about the sanctions.

China, however, is easily North Korea's biggest trading partner and economic benefactor, and helped design the sanctions package.
