  • The U.N. Security Council on Monday unanimously approved new sanctions on North Korea in a watered-down resolution that eliminated a ban on all oil imports and an international asset freeze on the government and leader Kim Jong Un that the Trump administration wanted.

    The resolution does ban North Korea from importing all natural gas liquids and condensates. But it caps Pyongyang's imports of crude oil at the level of the last 12 months Jaguars Youth Jersey , and it limits the import of refined petroleum products to 2 million barrels a year.

    It also bans all textile exports and prohibits countries from authorizing new work permits for North Korean workers — two key sources of hard currency for the northeast Asian nation.

    U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley told the council after the vote that "these are by far the strongest measures ever imposed on North Korea ... but we all know these steps only work if all nations implement them completely and aggressively."

    "Today we are saying the world will never accept a nuclear armed North Korea," she said. "We are done trying to prod the regime to do the right thing" and now are instead taking steps to prevent it "from doing the wrong thing."

    Haley reiterated that the United States does not want war and said "North Korea has not yet passed the point of no return." She said if Pyongyang gives up its nuclear program and proves it can live in peace, the world will live in peace with it.

    The resolution represents a swift response to North Korea's sixth and strongest nuclear test explosion Sept. 3, which it said was a hydrogen bomb Jaguars Womens Jersey , and to its escalating launches of increasingly sophisticated ballistic missiles that it says can reach the United States.

    The text was agreed to after final negotiations between the U.S. and China. Haley praised the "strong relationship" between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping for enabling the resolution's adoption.

    But its provisions are a significant climb-down from the toughest-ever sanctions that the Trump administration proposed in the initial draft resolution it circulated last Tuesday, especially on oil, where a complete ban could have crippled North Korea's economy.

    The cap on the import of petroleum products could have an impact but North Korea will still be able to import the same amount of crude oil that is has this year.

    North Korea imports nearly 2.2 million barrels a year in petroleum products, so the 2 million barrel cap in the resolution would represent a 10 percent cut. But the U.S. official said North Korea now receives about 4.5 million barrels of refined petroleum products Black Jaguars Jersey , which would mean a more than 50 percent cut.

    The textile ban is significant. Textiles are North Korea's main source of export revenue after coal, iron, seafood and other minerals that have already been severely restricted by previous U.N. resolutions.

    North Korean textile exports in 2016 totaled $752.5 million, accounting for about one-fourth of its total $3 billion in merchandise exports Jaguars Jersey Sale , according to South Korean government figures.

    The U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity ahead of the council vote, said the Trump administration believes the new sanctions combined with previous measures would ban over 90 percent of North Korea's exports reported in 2016.

    As for North Koreans working overseas, the official said the U.S. expects the cutoff on new work permits will cost North Korea about $500 million a year once current work permits expire. The U.S. estimates about 93 Cheap Jaguars Jersey ,000 North Koreans are currently working abroad, the official said.

    The original U.S. draft would have ordered all countries to impose an asset freeze and travel ban on Kim Jong Un and four other top party and government officials. The resolution adopted Monday adds only one person to the sanctions list — Pak Yong Sik, a member of the Workers' Party of Korea Central Military Commission, which controls the country's military and helps direct its military industries.

    The original U.S. draft would also have frozen the assets of North Korea's state-owned airline Air Koryo Jaguars A. J. Cann Jersey , the Korean People's Army and five other powerful military and party entities. The new resolution drops sanctions on the airline and army and would only add the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea and the party's powerful Organization and Guidance Department and its Propaganda and Agitation Department to the sanctions blacklist.

    North Korea's Foreign Ministry issued a statement early Monday saying it was watching the United States' moves closely and warned that it was "ready and willing" to respond with measures of its own. It said the U.S. would pay a heavy price if the sanctions proposed by Washington are adopted.

    Britain's U.N. ambassador Jaguars Dante Fowler Jr Jersey , Matthew Rycroft, told reporters who questioned the watering down of the initial U.S. text that "there is a significant prize in keeping the whole of the Security Council united and I very much hope that all my council colleagues will vote in favor of the revised draft."

    Rycroft called the resolution "very robust" and "a very significant set of additional sanctions on imports into North Korea and exports out of North Korea and other measures as well."

    French Ambassador Francois Delattre said, "We are facing not a regional but a global threat, not a virtual but an immediate threat Jaguars Dede Westbrook Jersey , not a serious but an existential threat."

    "Make no mistake about it," he said, "our firmness today is our best antidote to the risk of war, to the risk of confrontation Jaguars Dawuane Smoot Jersey , and our firmness today is our best tool for a political solution tomorrow."
