Sanctions North Koreans it links to weapons, financial networks

The passage of the Korean Interdiction and Modernization of Sanctions Act came eight days after the legislation was introduced.

Lee made the statement at a one-year to go press conference, where he was asked if tensions between the two countries could see North Korea opt out of sending athletes to compete.

War games are now raging as the US and South drill for the possibility of war with North Korea.

South Korean athletes need approval from Seoul to enter the North as the 1950-53 Korean War ended with a truce, not a peace treaty, leaving the two Koreas technically in a state of war. "The only country that can stop North Korea is China and they know that", Haley told ABC's "This Week" in an interview broadcast on Sunday. The primary targets of its terms are Chinese businesses. And then add China's relationship with North Korea. The resolution denouncing North Korea also includes calls for swift deployment of the THAAD missile defense system on the Korean Peninsula.

She said Thursday in an interview with four news agencies that the US can't change the way North Korea thinks but "China can".

It said the people were working as agents of North Korea's government in Russia, China, Vietnam and Cuba to provide financial support or help procure weapons for previously sanctioned companies.

Asked what the US would do if China doesn't cooperate, Haley said: "China has to cooperate".




As for the United Nations, she said it has "gotten stale" and she described her hatred for bureaucracy, saying she has avoided it so far by dealing only with Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, whom she described as "a partner" committed like she is to reforming the world body.

"They haven't used that influence, and so it's hard for me to be optimistic with that", he said.

Many experts say that there is a high possibility the regime could conduct its sixth nuclear test next month, which has many anniversaries on the calendar, including the birthday of late founder Kim Il-sung on April 15th.

She said the condemnation will stand because "we can't change what they did, but we can sure change our actions in how we deal with it".

The Trump administration is considering sweeping sanctions aimed at cutting North Korea off from the global financial system in order to counter Pyongyang's nuclear and missile threat, as well as increased pressure on Chinese banks and firms that do business with North Korea.

Haley has also complained about anti-Israel bias at the Human Rights Council and she said her team is assessing what the Geneva-based agency has done well "and everything that they've done that's just absurd".
