Our Park Jong-hong has the following report.

The measures in the draft circulated to the Council's 15 member states also included the repatriation of North Koreans working overseas within the next year, according to Reuters news agency.

The US has said that all options, including military action, are on the table, though it prefers diplomacy to resolve North Korea's nuclear standoff.

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, told the Security Council that the most recent test was "another attempt by the Kim regime to masquerade as a great power while their people starve and their soldiers defect". And it caps imports of refined oil products, including diesel and kerosene, at 500,000 barrels a year. That's a further reduction from a September resolution that reduced petroleum product sales to 2 million barrels annually starting October 1, down from 4.5 million barrels.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley votes among other members of the United Nations Security Council to impose new sanctions on North Korea, in NY, U.S., December 22, 2017.

Burkina Faso is banning imports from North Korea to comply with tough United Nations economic sanctions punishing Pyongyang's weapons programmes, the government said on Wednesday.

US President Donald Trump's new national security strategy is a "criminal document" that seeks the "total subordination of the whole world to the interests of the US", North Korea's foreign ministry says.

It was the 20th time the North launched a ballistic missile this year.

But an inquiry in October by the USA - which has been pushing for tougher sanctions - found that Burkina Faso was still trading with North Korea.

A total of 15 North Korean officials, most of whom work in banking, were added to the United Nations sanctions blacklist along with the ministry of the people's armed forces, which manages army logistics for the country.

All North Korean workers in foreign countries are in principle to be repatriated within 2 years from the day the resolution is adopted.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson initially said the United States would enter negotiations with no preconditions, but he quickly backtracked by acknowledging that Pyongyang shows no willingness to even talk about giving up its nuclear weapons.

In addition to the limits on oil sales, the new sanctions also include the forced repatriation of North Korean workers from outside of the country within 24 months. They will all have to return by the end of 2019. The crude oil can still be refined in North Korea and used by the military, he said.

The comment comes as tensions have increased over North Korea's nuclear program following its latest test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on November 29th.
