And the new measure dilutes the original language that would have banned the import of North Korean laborers altogether, saying that countries should not provide work authorization papers unless necessary for humanitarian assistance or denuclearization. The idea is generally that the country's leaders will ultimately decide that the economic cost of their behavior is too great and switch course. "It's a weak link", said Michael Elleman, a missile defence analyst at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS). "The North Korean regime has not yet passed the point of no-return", AFP quoted Haley as saying. A previous version would have allowed countries to stop and board vessels thought to be breaking U.N. sanctions. "But the U.S. doesn't want to go to the negotiating table".
Since the U.S.is revealing its nature as a blood-thirsty beast obsessed with the wild dream of reversing the DPRK's development of the state nuclear force which has already reached the completion phase, there is no way that the DPRK is going to wait and let the U.S. feast on it.
"We have been clear in close consultation with the Americans that oil has to be included as an element of sanctions", South Korean foreign minister Kang Kyung-Wha told reporters.
Park also warned Pyongyang not to "test the international community's resolute will" and reiterated Moon Jae-in administration's call to engaging in dialogue to achieve "complete, irreversible and verifiable" dismantling of its nuclear program.
That would mean North Korea imports nearly 2.2 million barrels a year in petroleum products, so the 2 million barrel cap in the resolution would represent a 10 per cent cut. Meanwhile, we have little real understanding of how Kim makes his decisions and what his private feelings about sanctions are.
Which of these theories is more accurate? Even now Beijing fails to exploit the cracks that have emerged between President Donald Trump and South Korea's President Moon Jae-in because of its loathing for Thaad.

The U.S. estimates about 93,000 North Koreans are currently working abroad, the U.S. official said. The US-drafted sanctions received a 15-0 vote and this is the ninth resolution adopted by the UN since the year 2006.
Playing on Trump's "fire and fury" threat of a month ago, Democratic Rep. Gerald Connolly said Trump's policy looks more like "fecklessness and failure".

The United States watered down an initial tougher draft resolution to win the support of Pyongyang ally China and Russia. It has voted unanimously on a new sanctions resolution. She said North Korea was "begging for war".
Kim is "begging for war", said US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, warning that her country's tolerance for provocations was wearing thin. Simply put, North Korea and the Kim regime exist within a belief system that has two ideas at its core.
In these attacks, hackers used spear-phishing attacks to target the personal email accounts of employees at digital currency exchanges using lures related to taxes or by deploying malicious malware such as PEACHPIT and other variants. "Intelligence services must get to that needle", Mansky says. Essentially it does none of that.
However, instead of making a right choice based on rational analysis of the overall situation, the U.S.is trying to use the DPRK's legitimate self-defensive measures as an excuse to strangle and completely suffocate it.
"A$3 s the sanctions regime expands, so does the scope of evasion", the report's authors noted. Both Russia and China, as permanent members, wield veto power.
