China announces imposition of oil sanctions on North Korea from Oct 1

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

The implementation of sanctions on Kim Jong Un regime is based on the UN Security Council's (UNSC) unanimous approval to the new sanctions on North Korea to ban all oil imports and freeze worldwide assets of the government and its defiant leader, in response to Pyongyang's sixth and strongest nuclear test explosion on September 3.

A South Korea Meteorological Agency spokesman said that acoustic waves from a man-made explosion should have been detected but were not.

US President Donald Trump has made new threats against North Korea in response to the country's foreign minister's fiery speech at the United Nations on Saturday.

The "quake" occurred at approximately 08:30 GMT (16:29 local time) on Saturday, reports South Korea's Yonhap news agency.

Seismic activity was detected Saturday near the site of North Korea's Punggye-ri nuclear site, but it is not known whether a nuclear test caused the development.

"This mission is a demonstration of US resolve and a clear message that the president has many military options to defeat any threat", Defense Department spokesman Dana White said in a statement.

Ri Yong-ho described Mr Trump as a "mentally deranged person full of megalomania" on a "suicide mission".

Until now, the North has not tested its missiles and nuclear weapons together, opting instead to fire them separately - the missiles above ground and the nuclear weapons below.

Moore is a grass-roots conservative, an outspoken critic of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Washington "swamp". Even President Donald Trump , who's had spats with McConnell, is on board to make sure unusual keeps his seat.

China accounts of about 90 percent North Korea's trade, according to The Associated Press.

"We use several methods to tell whether earthquakes are natural or manmade", said the official, who asked for anonymity.

North Korea has one nuclear test site - Punggye-ri.

The forceful rhetoric from Pyongyang came after Trump threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea in a speech Tuesday to the General Assembly. Ri, who said Pyongyang's ultimate goal was to establish a "balance of power with the US", retorted that Trump himself was on a "suicide mission" after the United States president said Kim was on such a mission.

"Trump's rubbish is the open declaration of war against our supreme dignity, state, social system and people, and an unpardonable extra-large provocation", the report said, adding that "the U.S. warmongers will face unimaginable consequences".

China on Saturday announced that it will implement United Nations sanctions on North Korea, by cutting off oil exports to Pyongyang over its nuclear and missile developments.

Exports of refined petroleum to the North will be limited to 2 million barrels per year and sales of liquefied natural gas banned outright, effective January 1, the Commerce Ministry said.

He tweeted: 'Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!' Earlier this month the UN Security Council unanimously adopted its ninth round of sanctions on Pyongyang to counter its nuclear and ballistic missiles programs.
