North Korean diplomat blames United States for tension

Interrogating North Korea's Nuclear Program

Noting pride over the North's latest and biggest nuclear test, Han said the measure was a gift for the U.S.

"Guterres's comments came hours after a top North Korean diplomat warned that his country is ready to send "more gift packages" to the United States".

Earlier on Tuesday, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley had said that North Korea is "begging for war" with abusive use of missiles and nuclear threats. She urged the 15-member Security Council to impose the "strongest possible" sanctions to deter him and shut down his trading partners.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un provides guidance on a nuclear weapons program in this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) in Pyongyang September 3, 2017. the country's diplomat to the United Nations warned of "more gift packages" on September 5, 2017. "It cuts off the revenue that allows them to build ballistic missiles".

Philip Coyle, an analyst at the Centre for Arms Control and Non-proliferation, said something must be done to stop North Korea striking the US.

The Council has adopted Resolution 2356 designating high-ranking North Korean government officials and the military's Strategic Rocket Forces Command for individual sanctions.

The damage inflicted on South Korea's economy should a conflict start with its northern neighbor has sharpened focus on the nation's important role in the technology industry's global supply chain. China's foreign ministry said on Tuesday it would take part in Security Council discussions in "a responsible and constructive manner". He ruled out the possibility of any talks on North Korea's denuclearization, saying Pyongyang's nuclear deterrent is a topic that's off-limits and non-negotiable, in any future dialogue.

Analysts and South Korean policymakers believe North Korea may test another weapon on or around September 9, its founding day.

Following the September 3rd test, South Korea announced an agreement with its ally the U.S., to scrap a weight limit on its warheads, saying this would help it respond to the threat from its northern neighbour.
