More sanctions heaped on North Korea by UN
The United Nations Security Council has voted unanimously to impose tougher sanctions on North Korea in response to its recent ballistic missile tests.The next sanctions should be to cut off their internet connections to the country and to any offices it has outside the country. That would cut their flow of funds from cyber attacks and drastically restrict their communications with operatives outside the country supplying them with parts for the missile and nuclear program.
The US-drafted resolution includes measures to reduce the nation's petrol imports by up to 90%.
China and Russia, North Korea's main trading partners, voted in favour of the resolution.
The country is already subject to a raft of sanctions from the US, the UN and the EU.
