UN Security Council vows sanctions over N. Korea missile test

17 May 2017

Russian Federation is one of the few countries that has diplomatic ties with North Korea.

At the April 28 United Nations meeting on North Korea, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, "China, accounting for 90 percent of North Korean trade, China alone has economic leverage over Pyongyang that is unique, and its role is therefore particularly important".

The council is expected to discuss the next steps during its meeting late evening today.

Sunday's missile launch also tested the North's capability to carry a "large-size heavy nuclear warhead", the state news agency said.

The Hwasong-12 missile flew 490 miles and topped a maximum altitude of 1,310 miles.

Outsiders express more skepticism about North Korea's nuclear warhead claims. Japanese officials disclosed that the missile flew for thirty minutes and landed in the Sea of Japan.

It's been under development but what makes it more interesting is the idea that it is being tested on a Gigabit LTE service. So far, we learned that the Z2 will boast of a dual rear camera system and a black front.

"North Korea's latest successful missile test represents a level of performance never before seen from a North Korean missile", Schilling wrote.

That signalled a new phase in applying sanctions that curb exports of coal from North Korea, impose severe restrictions on banking and ban sales of luxury goods and equipment that could be of use to the military.

Before Sunday's launch, an intermediate-range missile called Musudan was thought to have the longest potential range among the missiles that North Korea has test-fired - about 3,500 kilometers (2,180 miles). Each new nuclear and longer-range missile test is part of the North's attempt to build a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile.

"Until the USA and its followers make a right choice, we will further produce sophisticated and diversified nuclear weapons and striking means and push to prepare for necessary tests", Pak was quoted as saying by the KCNA.

North Korea said Tuesday it will continue to conduct nuclear or missile tests with smaller and more diversified nuclear weapons, according to its state media.

Pyongyang also launched its missile amid continuing speculation that President Donald Trump may take military action to prevent it from acquiring nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them. But outside experts said Pyongyang seems to be still years away from doing so.

"As South Korea's diplomatic situation matures, North Korea should also show a more mature attitude, not a childish one, and contribute to (establishing a better) diplomatic relationship", said Jin Hyo-seon, 33, a painter.

"I'm not going to talk about various policy options that we may or may not consider, but I will say this: we are certainly engaged right now in looking at a number of measures - political, economic, security - to deal with these provocative acts by the DPRK, and risky acts in many cases", he said.

While Trump has said he'd be "honored" to talk with leader Kim under favorable conditions, Haley seemed to rule out the possibility. "It's going to be very hard for people to tell when it's a test and when it's the start of a war".

But Victor Cha, a senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said analysis shows that the missile could possibly reach USA military bases in Guam.

But if it was sacked at a standard trajectory, it would have a range of at least 4,000 km (2,500 miles), experts said. While the test showed technological advances, 38 North said that North Korea isn't yet able to put United States cities "at risk tomorrow, or any time this year".

During a press conference on May 14, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga stated, "We are doing our utmost to ensure our citizens' safety and peace of mind, while working closely with the USA and South Korea". The US has sent warships and submarines to waters off the Korean Peninsula, engaged in drills with South Korean and Japanese forces, and has pushed for stronger economic sanctions on Pyongyang.
