Are North Korea and Iran Working Together?

The Security Council says North Korea uses proceeds from those exports to fund its missile programs.

The Council moved to significantly strengthen the sanctions on the DPRK, imposing a full ban on the export of coal, iron and iron ore from the DPRK.

Backed by its European allies, Japan and South Korea, the United States has been leading the push at the United Nations for tougher sanctions in response to North Korea's launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile on July 4.

The ban, as announced by US Secretary of States, Rex Tillerson, is to remain in effect for one year, unless it is revoked.


The sanctions provided in Resolution 2371 aim to slash North Korea's annual export revenue of US$3 billion by a third.

The ASEAN foreign ministers urged the North to "positively" contribute to realizing the ASEAN Regional Forum's vision for the "lasting peace, stability, friendship and prosperity" of the Asia-Pacific region.

But it said that "as a precautionary measure, the company has decided to expand the non-flyover area around North Korea".

ASEAN - which includes Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar - is "very much concerned about the developments in the Korean Peninsula", said Philippine Foreign Ministry spokesman Robespierre Bolivar.


The draft resolution reiterates language in previous council resolutions supporting a return to six-party talks with the goal of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, expressing the council's commitment "to a peaceful, diplomatic, and political solution".

The report said the ban reflects Washington's view of Pyongyang as an enemy and reiterated that President Donald Trump's administration should abandon its hostile policies towards the North.

But Tillerson's statement of sense is greatly at odds with various hawkish statements of GOP elders, not to mention the president himself.

Sanctions have already been in place since 2006 over the country's weapons programmes.
