North Korea threatens physical actions after United Nations sanctions

On two fronts this week, efforts were made to make North Korea abandon its nuclear missile program which, it has repeatedly said, is aimed at the United States.

"We will, under no circumstances, put the nukes and ballistic rockets on negotiating table", North Korea said.

China appreciated comments earlier this month by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that the United States was not seeking to topple the North Korean government and would like dialogue with Pyongyang at some point, Wang added.

Washington is leaving it to China to restate world powers' opposition to new nuclear bomb tests while the United States urges a halt in missile launches "which obviously is a much lower rhetorical barrier to resuming talks", the official said.

North Korea is barred under United Nations resolutions from any use of ballistic missile technology but six sets of United Nations sanctions since Pyongyang's first nuclear test in 2006 have failed to halt its drive for what it insists are defensive weapons. The new sanctions, banning major North Korean exports such as coal and iron, are created to starve the regime of the money to pay for it -money that is also used to enrich the powerful elites and generals who, in turn, don't challenge Kim Jong Un's near total power.

As the USA and its allies welcome the latest United Nations sanctions against North Korea as a good, incremental step to increase pressure on the Kim Jong Un regime, a question looms: Will this cause economic pressure strong enough to change Pyongyang's behavior?

"The best signal that North Korea could send that they are prepared to talk would be to stop these missile launches", Mr Tillerson said.

Moreover, the Russian affirmative vote came just days after US President Donald Trump signed an extensive sanctions bill against Moscow into law, leading Russian President Vladimir Putin to force US diplomatic staff out of their missions in Russia. "We must be tough & decisive!" he wrote.

"This is really about the spirit of these talks, and they (North Korea) can demonstrate that they're ready to sit with a spirit of finding a way forward in these talks by no longer conducting these missile tests".

North Korea says its intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) are a legitimate means of defence against perceived USA hostility.

North Korea has made no secret of its plans to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of striking the United States and has ignored global calls to halt its nuclear and missile programmes.

"Under Kim Jong Un's leadership, North Korea is pushing for stronger actions than it did in the Kim Jong Il era", said Kim Yong-hyun, a professor of North Korean studies at Dongguk University in Seoul.

"North Korea's response is expected, because they have their own position", Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters in Manila on Monday night.

Joint discussions between six nations - China, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Russia and the USA - collapsed in 2009.

North Korea is likely to continue pursuing ballistic missile tests at its current pace of about every three to four weeks despite the sanctions, according to John Park, director of the Korea Working Group at Harvard Kennedy School.

"North Korea should realise if it doesn't stop its nuclear, missile provocations, it will face even stronger pressure and sanctions", Defence Ministry spokesman Moon Sang-gyun told a regular news briefing.

"If we want to know why United Nations sanctions are not working, it's because North Korea is able to operate inside China and Russian Federation", he said.
