UN Security Council impose new sanctions on North Korea

UN Security Council impose new sanctions on North Korea
The UN Security Council has unanimously imposed new sanctions on North Korea following its latest intercontinental ballistic missile test.


Analysts say that the move could have a significant impact on the isolated country's struggling economy.

The resolution seeks to ban nearly 90% of refined petroleum product exports to North Korea by capping them at 500,000 barrels a year and demands the repatriation of North Koreans working abroad within 12 months.

The US-drafted resolution would also cap crude oil supplies to North Korea at four million barrels a year. The United States has been calling on China to limit its oil supply to its neighbour and ally.

The resolution passed by a vote of 15 to 0, said Japan's ambassador to the UN. Japan holds the presidency of the Security Council this month.
