USA may sanction oil trade with Pyongyang

NK Ambassador Sanctions Won’t Deter Nuclear Ambitions

"Let's vent our spite with mobilisation of all retaliation means which have been prepared till now".

'The four islands of the archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche'.

On Monday, the Security Council passed a US-drafted resolution banning textile exports and restricting shipments of oil products, with the support of North Korea's only ally China.

The statement said the USA should be "beaten to death as a stick is fit for a rabid dog" for supporting a United Nations resolution backing further sanctions against Pyongyang.

The English version of the statement used derogatory terms "Japs" and "Yankees" to refer to Japanese and Americans.

North Korea rejected the sanctions imposed on it and said that the United States would now encounter the "greatest pain" it had ever experienced.

He expressed frustration with the North's continued provocations including its sixth and largest nuclear test on September 3.

Juche is Pyongyang's political ideology, a combination of Marxism and an nationalism championed by state founder Kim Il Sung, the late grandfather of current chairman, Kim Jong-un.

The statement from the North Korean state-controlled news agency also had a disturbing message for Japan.

North Korea made an explicit threat to use a nuclear weapon to sink Japan, in remarks that further cranks up heightened tensions in North Asia.

Frustrated US lawmakers called on Tuesday for a high-powered response to North Korea's nuclear tests, saying Washington should act alone if necessary to stiffen sanctions on companies from China, Russia and any country doing business with Pyongyang, Reuters reports.

In an angry backlash, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe slammed the launch as an "unprecedented, serious and grave threat" and called for a UN Security Council meeting, urging for "increased pressure on North Korea in cooperation with the global community".

"The government's stance is that the humanitarian aid for North Korea's infants, adolescents and pregnant women has to be continued regardless of the political situation".

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe condemned the launch at the time, while US President Donald Trump reiterated that "all options" were under consideration in responding to North Korea's provocations.

While the latest sanctions are not as tough as what the U.S. had sought, they are expected to have a significant impact.

In response to sanctions imposed by the United Nations, the hermit nation warned they will nuke Japan and reduce the U.S. "to ashes and darkness".
