3. SOUNDBITE (English) Nikki Haley, Permanent Representative of the United States to the United Nations:
“Today’s resolution builds on what were already the deepest cutting sanctions ever levelled against North Korea. We’ve down this road before. The Security Council has expressed its condemnation. We’ve levelled sanctions, but today is different. We are acting in response to a dangerous new development, North Korea’s September 3rd test of a claimed hydrogen bomb. Today we are saying the world will never accept a nuclear armed North Korea, and today the Security Council is saying that if the North Korean regime does not halt its nuclear programme, we will act to stop it ourselves.”

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Nikki Haley, Permanent Representative of the United States to the United Nations:
“We are done trying to prod the regime to do the right thing. We are now acting to stop it from having the ability to continue doing the wrong thing. We are doing that by hitting North Korea’s ability to fuel and fund its weapons programme. Oil is the life-blood of North Korea’s effort to build and deliver a nuclear weapon. Today’s resolution reduces almost 30 percent of oil provided to North Korea by cutting off over 55 percent of its gas, diesel, and heavy fuel oil.”

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Nikki Haley, Permanent Representative of the United States to the United Nations:
“Beyond the 1.3 billion in annual revenues we will cut from North Korea, new maritime authorities will help us stop them from obtaining funds by smuggling coal and other prohibited materials around the world by ship.”

9. SOUNDBITE (Chinese), Permanent Representative of China to the United Nations:
“China has been making unremitting efforts for the denuclearization and for maintain peace and stability of the Peninsula. On 4 July, this year, China and Russia issued a joint statement on the Korean Peninsula based on China’s proposals of a dual track approach to promote denuclearization of the Peninsula in parallel with the establishment of a peace mechanism on the Peninsula and a suspension initiative halting the DPRK’s nuclear activities and the United States and the Republic of Korea suspension of their large-scale military exercises, and based upon Russia’s proposal of a step by step approach.”

STORYLINE
The Security Council today (11 Sep) unanimously adopted a resolution expanding sanctions on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) in response to the DPRK’s test of a nuclear device on 3 September.

Ambassador Nikki Haley of the United States told the Council that the resolution “builds on what were already the deepest cutting sanctions ever levelled against North Korea.”

Haley said that this, the third Council outcome on the DPRK in the past five weeks, was “different” and added that “if the North Korean regime does not halt its nuclear programme, we will act to stop it ourselves.”

The US ambassador said “we are done trying to prod the regime to do the right thing. We are now acting to stop it from having the ability to continue doing the wrong thing. We are doing that by hitting North Korea’s ability to fuel and fund its weapons programme.”

The new sanctions include capping imports of crude oil into North Korea, and prohibiting the sale of natural gas to the country.

Haley said “oil is the life-blood of North Korea’s effort to build and deliver a nuclear weapon.”

The resolution also gives authorisation to member states to interdict and inspect cargo vessels on the high seas.

Haley said “beyond the 1.3 billion in annual revenues we will cut from North Korea, new maritime authorities will help us stop them from obtaining funds by smuggling coal and other prohibited materials around the world by ship.”

China’s ambassador, Liu Jieyi, told the Council that “China has been making unremitting efforts for the denuclearization and for maintain peace and stability of the Peninsula.”

On 4 July, this year, he said “China and Russia issued a joint statement on the Korean Peninsula based on China’s proposals of a dual track approach to promote denuclearization of the Peninsula in parallel with the establishment of a peace mechanism on the Peninsula and a suspension initiative halting the DPRK’s nuclear activities and the United States and the Republic of Korea suspension of their large-scale military exercises, and based upon Russia’s proposal of a step by step approach.”

The 3 September nuclear test was the sixth such test conducted by DPRK since October 2006, and the most powerful such device it has tested.
