Swiss tighten sanctions against North Korea

Image Association of South East Asian Nations in Philippines

"This is the most stringent set of sanctions on any country in a generation".

"There is no bigger mistake than the United States believing that its land is safe across the ocean", it said.

Here's an overview of the big questions about the new measures.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average extended its winning streak to double digits and booked its ninth consecutive record close to start the week.

The North Korean government has labelled the sanctions a "violent infringement of its sovereignty" caused by a "heinous US plot to isolate and stifle" the country. That seems unlikely, too.

If North Korea ever established ICBM and conventional forces that could surpassed the US and South Korea, an invasion by Pyongyang would be likely. He wouldn't give a concrete time frame but said that the U.S. would "know it when we see it".

The US, Australia and Japan have promised to continue "freedom of navigation" operations in the South China Sea and called on Beijing to endorse a legally binding code of conduct over the disputed region.

"Western opinion often has an unwarranted moral superiority over the non-Western world". And the top U.S. diplomat for Asia, Susan Thornton noted the importance of China continuing to carry out the sanctions. Save for France and Estonia, Europe has already normalized ties with North Korea. Very big financial impact! But it's perhaps not quite as simple a victory as Trump portrays it to be.

Earlier this year, Russia expanded its use of North Korean migrant workers.

Normalization of relations does not mean endorsement of the other side's conduct nor does it have any implication for policies of regime change or improvement of human rights conducts in the other nation.

As always, only time will tell.

Many experts doubt that they will truly be effective if not fully enforced. The latest such test indicated that the beleaguered nation is capable of launching a warhead that could reach the interior of the United States and beyond the West Coast.

The Philippines and the nine other ASEAN nations all have diplomatic ties with North Korea, including five that maintain embassies there.

North Korea has long accused the United States and South Korea of escalating tensions by conducting military drills.

On Sunday, after a late-night conversation with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Trump tweeted: "Just completed call with President Moon of South Korea".

Chris Hannas and Ken Bredemeier reported this story for VOA News. He says the North is "ready to teach the U.S. a severe lesson with its nuclear strategic force".

"We affirm that we'll never place our nuclear and ballistic missiles programme on the negotiating table, and won't budge an inch on strengthening nuclear armament". The resolution, deemed the harshest since its first nuclear experiment in 2006, was payback for Pyongyang's testing of two intercontinental ballistic missiles last month, which for the first time showed a capacity to hit the U.S. mainland. "We will use them, if we must, but we prefer not to have to go in that direction".

Will the sanctions bring the country to the negotiating table, which is what U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson wants?

For its part, North Korea hasn't offered much contrition.

The statement, carried by North Korea's official Korea Central News Agency, also threatened to make the US 'pay the price for its crime. thousands of times'.
