United Nations mulls new N Korea sanctions, vote could happen Friday

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un GETTYNorth Korea crisis Tough new sanctions drafted by the USA could be voted on as soon as tomorrow

The United Nations Security Council is considering a USA -drafted resolution that would impose additional sanctions on North Korea, targeting nearly 90 percent of Pyongyang's refined oil product imports and placing additional limits on crude imports.

The US is pushing a new set of sanctions on North Korea at the United Nations Security Council.

It would also cap crude oil supplies to North Korea at 4 million barrels a year.

The United States has proposed "black listing" ten more commercial ships for aiding in North Korean efforts to circumvent sanctions imposed on Kim Jong Un's regime over their nuclear and ballistic missile weapons programs.

Based on talks with a number of USA and British security officials, the Telegraph said, it seems that the military option is a much more likely scenario for Washington than most people apparently believe. The new measures are in response to North Korea's November 28 test of an intercontinental ballistic missile. So-called six-party talks on North Korea's nuclear program stalled in 2008.

USA officials say it has given no indication it is willing to discuss giving up its nuclear program and Pyongyang has repeatedly denounced US and South Korean military drills, which it says are a prelude to invasion. Though the USA and China are reported to be working on a draft resolution, it is unclear if China will agree to implement them. Citing unnamed sources, the daily said there was a dramatic step-up in preparations for a military response to North Korea's missile tests.

Meanwhile, the Telegraph reported there was talk in Washington about a "bloody nose"-style military attack against North Korea".

Washington has warned North Korea it would be "totally destroyed" in the event of war and on Monday US President Donald Trump unveiled a new national security strategy stressing the need to deal with the challenge posed by Pyongyang. A White House official said on Tuesday that Facebook Inc and Microsoft Corp disabled a number of North Korean cyber threats last week.

It would also blacklist 19 North Korean individuals and the country's Ministry of the People's Armed Forces.
