Yesterday, neighbours South Korea welcomed the fresh sanctions imposed on North Korea by the UN Security Council which unanimously adopted a US-drafted resolution.

In a statement by South Korea’s foreign ministry said the sanction is result of a “strict warning from the international community”, while it also informed that the South will continue to strengthen cooperation with the international community to ensure that the resolutions “are thoroughly implemented”.

The new sanction according to reports bans North Korea from importing all natural gas liquids and condensates but bars Pyongyang’s imports of crude oil at the level of the last 12 months, and it limits the import of refined petroleum products to 2 million barrels a year.
