"These new sanctions send a loud and clear message to North Korea that its behaviour will not be tolerated by the international community and will be met with significant consequences", he said.
MCEVERS: The big question now is, how will this resolution be implemented? "They probably see it as a very low-cost solution to bring in hard cash".
Committee members expressed frustration that previous sanctions had not deterred Pyongyang.
She added: "The North Korean regime has not yet passed the point of no return". Not to be lagging behind, India is also developing MIRVs - a single missile that can carry several nuclear warheads, each programmed to hit different targets - for its Agni series of ballistic missiles.
Ukraine - which has long called for United Nations peacekeepers to be deployed - fears Moscow is simply trying to ease the international pressure it faces and would use any force to lock in gains made by Kremlin-backed rebels. He singled out the China Merchants Bank and the Agricultural Bank of China.
"We also won't open new accounts now".
The UN has imposed seven rounds of sanctions against North Korea since 2006, but smugglers have managed to get around the bans. Those fears pale in comparison to North Korea testing nuclear weapons, but cryptocurrency owners should probably still be concerned.
The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is "ready to use a form of ultimate means", Han said without elaborating.
That would mean 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 per cent cut.
China's foreign ministry did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment on a potential trip by Trump to the Asian country.
As for North Koreans working overseas, the U.S. Mission said a cutoff on new work permits will eventually cost North Korea about $500 million a year once current work permits expire.
The U.S.is going frantic to fabricate the harshest ever "sanctions resolution" by manipulating the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) over the DPRK's ICBM mountable H-bomb test.
The United Nations Security Council meeting early last week confirmed again that the present tenant of the White House is threatening Mr Kim with all manner of dire reprisals if he doesn't abandon his nuclear ambitions.
He said the North's access to hard currency was its "Achilles heel".
The weakening of the sanctions reflects the longstanding rift between sanctions hawk Washington, and China and Russia, which advocate direct talks and more efforts to find a resolution through negotiations. The U.S. has rejected proposals from both countries that it stop joint military exercises with South Korea in exchange for a halt to North Korea's nuclear and missile tests. Today, rival lawmakers are expected to clash over the government's response to North Korea's growing threats and provocations. He expressed hope that the United States will pledge not to seek regime change or North Korea's collapse. It has voted unanimously on a new sanctions resolution. The U.S. proposed slashing projects employing North Korean workers abroad, but instead accepted sanctions aimed at gradually scaling them back.
