USA determined to have United Nations vote Monday on N.Korea sanctions: diplomats

The United States aims to impose the strictest sanctions ever on North Korea, with a vote on a U.N. resolution set to take place Monday amid mounting tensions between the two countries.

In reference to the United Nations vote, Japan is pushing for strong oil sanctions, while the USA wants to ban textile exports and shut down the hiring of North Korean guest workers in other countries.

The council diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said he expected negotiations on the draft resolution to lead to some changes that could address Russian and Chinese concerns.

A brief statement from the U.S. Mission to the United Nations late Friday said: "This evening, the United States informed the U.N. Security Council that it intends to call a meeting to vote on a draft resolution to establish additional sanctions on North Korea on Monday, September 11". South Korea was on alert after thinking they might celebrate with another ballistic missile test, but instead it was a more staid affair with ceremonies to honor past leaders.

After the latest nuclear test by North Korea at the weekend, the USA and its allies called for tougher sanctions against the North Korean regime.

In July, it tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that appeared to bring much of the mainland USA into range.

The United States and other Western countries have asked the UN to consider tough new sanctions on North Korea after its test last week that it said was of an advanced hydrogen bomb.

In another commentary, Rodong Sinmun said the U.S. would continue receiving "gift packages in different shapes and sizes" as long as it sticks to what it said was a hostile policy against the North. The vote in response to Pyongyang's latest nuclear test is intended for September 11, the USA mission to the United Nations announced on Friday night.

Several diplomats say the USA demand for a speedy council vote is aimed at putting maximum pressure on China.

A ban on oil and oil products is the "toughest point", a source familiar with the discussions said.

Rycroft said a proposed ban on all oil imports and textile exports, as well as prohibiting North Koreans from working overseas - which helps finance the country's nuclear program - was "a proportionate response" to North Korea's "illegal and reckless behavior".

Pyongyang's nuclear testing and launches using ballistic missile technology violated UNSC resolutions.

The new push could potentially cause a rift with China, North Korea's ally and trading partner, as well as with Russian Federation.
