UN Security Council Sees "Ample Possibility" To Use Sanctions Against N Korea

A hacking group linked to North Korea has used code that's identical to some of the malware used in the Wanna Cry attack security researchers say. Here North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is seen visiting a factory in an image released from North Korea

The United States military stationed in South Korea has informed the host country of its detection of a recent North Korean missile launch, but important facts were omitted in the information sharing, sources said Wednesday.

U.S. Disarmament Ambassador Wood said China was key given that 90 percent of North Korea's trade was with that country.

The U.S. ambassador the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said the United States believed it could persuade China to impose new U.N. sanctions on North Korea and warned that Washington would "call out" states supporting Pyongyang and target them with sanctions too. "We don't have it done yet", Haley said.

The statement condemned the missile launch and said the Council would monitor the situation and impose significant new sanctions.

The United States has been discussing possible new U.N. sanctions with China since North Korea's previous missile test about two weeks ago.

North Korea has carried out two atomic tests and dozens of missile launches since the beginning of a year ago in its quest to develop a missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the continental United States.

"The actions of North Korea are unacceptable to the world, really", the admiral said during discussions with Kishida.

The UNSC and Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday both slammed the missile launches conducted by North Korea.

On Sunday, North Korea fired an intermediate-range ballistic missile, "Hwasong-12", from Kusong in North Pyognan Province with its leader Kim Jong-un in attendance.

North Korea has defied calls to curb its missile and nuclear weapons programs, testing its relationship with its lone major ally, China, which has always called for talks to resolve the issue, and prompting South Korea's new president, Moon Jae-in, to "strongly condemn" Sunday's action.

No draft resolution was circulated to the full council, but Haley said the United States was working with China on a text.

The missile flew 787 km (489 miles) on a trajectory reaching an altitude of 2,111.5 km (1,312 miles), KCNA said.

"We are willing to talk, but not until we see a total stop of the nuclear process and of any tests there", Haley said. Any country that did not look at putting new sanctions on North Korea was, in effect, helping the isolated nation, she said.

"We can not be in a "wait and see" mode until the next provocation occurs, " said France's Ambassador François Delattre.

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