The UN Security Council (UNSC) on Monday strongly condemned the latest ballistic missile test by North Korea and vowed to increase pressure on Kim Jong-Un regime including sanctions.
North Korea on Sunday launched what it appeared to be its longest-range ballistic missile yet. N. Korea said that it was capable of carrying a heavy nuclear warhead in a test aimed at bringing U.S. mainland within reach.
In a unanimous statement, backed by China, UNSC vowed strong measures in response to Pyongyang’s latest highly destabilizing behavior.
North Korea has carried out two atomic tests and dozens of missile launches since the beginning of 2016 going against UNSC resolutions.
UNSC last year ramped up pressure that was aimed to deny leader Kim Jong-Un the hard currency needed to fund his military programmes.
The Security Council want to implement other sanctions against on North Korea touching on oil, energy, and maritime ships exports among other options.
The U.S. is also in talks with China — Pyongyang’s sole major ally and main trading partner — on a possible new sanctions resolution and the council is expected to discuss its steps during a closed-door meeting starting around 2000 GMT Tuesday.
