China says willing to pay the price for new N.Korea sanctions

The US-drafted sanctions, created to deprive Kim Jong Un's regime of funds for its weapons program, were approved unanimously Saturday by the UN Security Council.

Speaking at a regional security forum in Manila on Monday, Wang said the new resolution showed China and the worldwide community's opposition to North Korea's continued missile tests, the foreign ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Security Council has already imposed six rounds of sanctions that have failed to halt North Korea's drive to improve its ballistic missile and nuclear weapons capabilities.

The Security Council unanimously approved tough new sanctions on North Korea on Saturday. Repeating a threat made a number of times since the recent intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) tests, Ri said that all of the US was now within striking range of Pyongyang's missiles.

Ri had been scheduled to hold a news conference in Manila, Philippines, where Asian diplomats are gathered for a meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. In a joint statement at the end of a meeting of their foreign ministers in Manila, the three countries said new sanctions on North Korea should be strictly implemented.

The new sanctions will block the export of iron ore, lead, iron, coal and seafood, and will reportedly prevent the North Korean regime from raising $1 billion annually.

Despite that, Pyongyang has continued developing its nuclear and weapons program.

As Washington and Beijing turn up the heat on Kim Jong-un's regime, reflected by Saturday's new penalties, fewer nations may now be willing to risk the global community's wrath by engaging with Kim.

Sony Sets 'Silver And Black' Release Date; 'Bad Boys 3' Now Unset
According to Deadline , the screenplay for Bad Boys 3 is still being worked on and Will Smith still has interest in the project. Unfortunately, they won't have an official new Spider-Man movie to help them, but maybe Venom will work out for them instead.

Tillerson would not spell out a deadline for North Korea to respond to the diplomatic overture.

Tillerson says, "We'll know it when we see it".

North Korea "will make the US pay dearly for all the heinous crimes it commits against the state and people of this country", the statement said.

But ASEAN's statement on North Korea stopped short of endorsing calls that Pyongyang be suspended from the ARF, as officials at the U.S. State Department had suggested this past week. Those capabilities are already a threat to neighbors and USA allies South Korea and Japan. "And we hope, again, that this ultimately will result in North Korea coming to the conclusion to choose a different pathway, and when the conditions are right that we can sit and have a dialogue around the future of North Korea so that they feel secure and prosper economically".

The sanctions resolution that China and Russian Federation voted for was the seventh the Security Council has imposed on North Korea since 2006, when the country carried out its first nuclear test.

Thornton says the USA wants to ensure that with the new sanctions, there's "not this kind of episodic back and forth that we've seen".

North Korea, meanwhile, threatened a "thousands-fold" act of revenge against the USA on Monday for the United Nations sanctions passed Saturday, the Associated Press reported. The source claimed that China was the party expected to address the issue, which also ran to the heart of the new United Nations sanctions.

Kang is echoing Tillerson's praise for the sanctions approved Saturday by the U.N. Security Council.
