North Korea vehemently rejected the UN sanctions, calling the members of the Security Council a puppet of the United States. Defiant statement came Thursday, after South Korea and Japan announced additional restrictions on States, including visits of foreign guests and nuclear experts.
The Security Council voted unanimously on 30 November for adoption of the "toughest" sanctions against North Korea, stopping the export of coal and copper at $800 million, New restrictions were adopted after North Korea in September, was tested 5 and potentially the most powerful nuclear warhead. In the statement, North Korea says that many countries that are members of the UN security Council has already conducted its own nuclear tests and missile launches.
"Obama and his lackeys are deeply mistaken if they believe that they can force the DPRK to abandon its line of nuclear weaponization and to undermine the status of nuclear power through the core sanctions," the statement said.
In addition, South Korea has said it will block the entry to North Korea for all foreign missile and nuclear experts. Senior officials from North Korea will also be blacklisted, the report said South Korea. On Friday, the government of Japan confirmed that they will take similar measures and banned the entry of Japanese ships that want to dock in North Korea.
At the meeting of the national security Council on 2 December, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that the government has decided to tighten sanctions for repeated nuclear tests and abduction of foreign citizens by North Korea.
The UN security Council already has imposed one set of sanctions against North Korea in 2016. "Today's resolution includes hard and most comprehensive sanctions regime ever imposed by the Security Council," said UN Secretary-General ban Ki-moon in his speech on Wednesday.
