北朝鮮関係

国連安保理事会の北朝鮮制裁決議は内容が薄まる。

PRESSTV2017/9/11
The initial draft had proposed a “progressive” oil embargo on Pyongyang, and called for a travel ban and asset freeze against Kim, along with four other North Korean officials, as well as restrictions on the country’s exports of textiles and the hiring of its laborers abroad.

The new version, seen by Reuters, has dropped the call for blacklisting Kim, and only lists one of the four officials. The oil embargo was also excluded from the final text, which instead seeks a ban on condensates and natural gas liquids.

It also keeps the proposal for restrictive measures against textile exports, which were North Korea’s second-biggest export after coal and other minerals in 2016.

The draft resolution also no longer urges an asset freeze on the military-controlled national airline Air Koryo.

If adopted, the resolution would be the eighth against Pyongyang since 2006. So far harsh sanctions have been imposed on the North over its ballistic missile and nuclear programs.

US Republican Senator John McCain has warned North Korean leader Kim Jong-un against attacking America and its allies, saying such aggression will lead to the Eastern Asian country’s “extinction.”

Washington needs to "make sure that Kim Jong-un knows that if he acts in an aggressive fashion, the price will be extinction," McCain told CNN on Sunday.

The head of Senate Armed Services Committee said Washington should strengthen its missile defenses in South Korea while putting more pressure on China to stop the North’s development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

He also said that the administration of President Donald Trump should start considering deploying nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula.

"The [South] Korean defense minister just a few days ago called for nuclear weapons to be redeployed," he said, saying that the call “ought to be seriously considered."
