Newspaper: UN imposes fresh sanctions on North Korea

China's foreign minister Wang Yi

Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono (6-L) joins foreign ministers and representatives of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) in the ASEAN-Japan Ministerial Meeting of the 50th ASEAN Foreign Ministers' Meeting (AMM) and Related Meetings in Manila, Philippines August 6, 2017.

"What this is going to do is send a very strong message and a united message", US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told NBC's "Today" programme in an interview on Tuesday, adding that Washington would be watching to see the sanctions are enforced.

China expects greater development of the Asean community, which will contribute more to regional peace, stability and prosperity and better benefit the people of its member countries, Xi said.

A US push to further isolate North Korea appeared to be reaping some dividends Sunday as China, Pyongyang's major benefactor, urged its outcast neighbor to make a "smart decision" and stop conducting missile launches and nuclear tests. Berger said that North Korea uses "illicit" networks to get supplies, and private sector companies can get around the restrictions. Washington has repeatedly said that it doesn't rule out any of scenario, including a military one, concerning the North Korean problem.

"The US fabricated a new sanctions resolution against the DPRK in the UN Security Council".

Diplomats say the ASEAN documents on the South China Sea were carefully worded to avoid angering China.

"We've not had an extended period of time where they have not taken some type of provocative action by launching ballistic missiles", Mr Tillerson said.


"The bellicose North Korean leader" Kim Jong-un has not been moved by sanctions, according to the board.

To paint the United States as the global threat much of the world considers his own country to be, Ri pointedly mentioned the atomic bombs that the United States dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II, and cast North Korea's nuclear program as self-defensive in nature.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi who represented the Chinese government also participated in the ASEAN 50 founding anniversary in Manila, who told reporters that the situation in the South China Sea has already been stabilized and a pragmatic cooperation has been unfolded.

Later Monday, Kono, who is said to have connections with USA officials and lawmakers, held a news conference for foreign reporters at the global media center, also a rare move for Japan's top diplomat.

North Korea is a participant to the ASEAN Regional Forum and has yet to comment on the ASEAN diplomats' concern over its nuclear programme.

The three nations also called on China and the Philippines to respect last year's arbitration ruling.

He urged the North to halt its nuclear and ballistic missile tests. The demands that China stop expanding and reinforcing man-made islands in the sea, however, have been watered down from a year ago as more pressing demands have risen to the forefront.
