"This resolution is the single largest economic sanctions package ever leveled against the North Korean regime", said Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations.
The United States is preparing for a "preventive war" with North Korea among many options to deal with its missile and nuclear threats, President Trump's top security adviser has said.
He called on the DPRK not to violate UN Security Council resolutions any more, while urging the United States and South Korea not to escalate tension on the peninsula.
With 15 votes in favor, Resolution 2371 was passed unanimously. The resolution significantly strengthens the sanctions on the DPRK, imposing a full ban on the export of coal, iron and iron ore from the country. And it prohibits all new joint ventures with North Korean companies and bans new foreign investment in existing ones.
According to the diplomat, coal has been North Korea's largest export, earning $1.2 billion a year ago which was then restricted by the Security Council to a maximum $400 million.
In an interview with MSNBC's Hugh Hewitt that aired Saturday, McMaster said Trump has been "deeply briefed" on the strategy on North Korea.
Tillerson also said the USA wants to talk eventually with North Korea, but doesn't think discussions would be productive if the North comes with the intention of maintaining its nuclear weapons.
US President Donald Trump commended the United Nations council on passing the sanctions, the White House said late Saturday in a statement.
Tillerson's reluctance to sit down with his North Korean counterpart is despite his growing push for Pyongyang to return to the negotiating table with the U.S. Tillerson said this week that such talks would have to be predicated on the North giving up its nuclear weapons aspirations and that the conditions for such talks haven't yet been met by North Korea's government.
The sanction also blacklisted nine DPRK individuals operating overseas as representatives of designated entities (asset freeze and travel ban) and four DPRK commercial entities designated for an asset freeze.
"The threat of an outlaw nuclearized North Korean dictatorship remains ..." In the previous resolutions against Pyongyang adopted a year ago, the council set export caps on coal, the country's main trade item.
Though the economic sanctions have teeth, Washington didn't get everything it wanted. It would also impose an asset freeze on two companies and two banks.
North Korea has repeatedly said it will never give up its nuclear arsenal, which it sees as a guarantee of its security.
It would also give a green light for the committee to designate specific vessels that are breaking sanctions from entering ports all over the world, and to work with INTERPOL to enforce travel bans on North Koreans on the sanctions blacklist. "This was a strong day in the U.N., it was a strong day for the United States and it was a strong day for the worldwide community".
Oil was not included in the draft resolution and neither are new air restrictions.
China has always insisted on realizing the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, upholding peace and stability there and seeking a solution through dialogue and consultation.
