UN weighs new sanctions on North Korea
    2017-May-18  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE U.N. Security Council met behind closed doors Tuesday to discuss a new raft of measures, including sanctions, aimed at piling pressure on North Korea after it fired its latest ballistic missile.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said the United States was working with China on a new sanctions resolution and that all U.N. member-states would step up action against North Korea.

“We all have to send a sign to North Korea, and that is ‘no more. This is not play time. This is serious. These threats are not welcome,’” Haley told reporters ahead of the council meeting.

The U.S. envoy also held out the prospect of direct talks with North Korea if Pyongyang puts an end to missile launches and nuclear tests.

“We are willing to talk but not until we see a total stop of the nuclear process and of any test there,” she said.

North Korea on Sunday launched what appeared to be its longest-range ballistic missile yet, saying it was capable of carrying a “heavy nuclear warhead” in a test aimed at bringing the U.S. mainland within reach.

The United States, Japan and South Korea called the emergency meeting in response to the missile test and to press international demands that North Korea change course and dismantle its missile and nuclear programs.

No draft resolution has been circulated to the 15 council members, but the United States is in talks with China on a possible new sanctions resolution that would ratchet up the pressure on Pyongyang.

“That’s what we are working on now. We don’t have it done yet,” Haley said.

“Absolutely, sanctions (are) something that we are looking at and we are going to continue to see where that takes us.”

Pyongyang has carried out two atomic tests and dozens of missile launches since the beginning of last year.
