Korea's H-bomb claim appears true: senior United States official

Americans are a little too relaxed about nukes

In a statement, U.S. Mission to United Nations said that United States wants Security Council to impose an oil embargo on North Korea, ban its exports of textiles and the hiring of North Korean laborers overseas, and to subject leader Kim Jong Un to an asset freeze and travel ban.

"This evening, the United States informed the UN Security Council that it intends to call a meeting to vote on a draft resolution to establish additional sanctions on North Korea on Monday, September 11", the statement read.

Moreover, South Korea Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon said that North Korean leader is likely to launch another intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) "on September 9".

Tension on the Korean peninsula has escalated as North Korea's young leader, Kim Jong Un, has stepped up the development of weapons in defiance of UN sanctions.

In July, it tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that appeared to bring much of the mainland U.S. into range.

Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer submits resignation for "personal reasons"
Mr Fischer was appointed by former President Barack Obama in 2014 and his term would normally have ended in June 2018. He cited "personal reasons" in a resignation letter Wednesday to Trump for leaving on or around October 13.

China and Russian Federation expressed a desire to focus on coaxing Kim into negotiations, although China's top diplomat, Foreign Minister Wang Yi, said he agreed it is necessary to impose further sanctions on North Korea.

In another commentary, Rodong Sinmun said the United States would continue receiving "gift packages in different shapes and sizes" as long as it sticks to what it said was a hostile policy against the North.

USA officials have said they want tough sanctions to maximize pressure on Pyongyang to agree to negotiations aimed at ending its nuclear and missile tests.

United Nations diplomats did not rule out the possibility that China or Russian Federation could veto the measure, but stressed that the USA administration had launched a major push to win approval.

"I can say that so far there's nothing inconsistent with the North Korean claim that this was a hydrogen bomb, but we don't have a conclusive view on it yet", he said on the condition of anonymity.

"We can say we have suspended trade relations with North Korea", Foreign Minister Alan Peter Cayetano told reporters after a meeting with the USA ambassador on cooperation on an anti-drugs program.

"Along with pressure on the North Korean regime to induce it to abandon provocations in the implementation of its nuclear and missile programs, it is necessary to emphasize and increase the priority of efforts to resume the political process", Lavrov said.

The draft is also said to propose a ban on purchasing North Korean textile exports and hiring North Korean laborers in an aim to block the country's foreign currency sources.

Pyongyang conducted its sixth nuclear test on Sunday, claiming it was a successful detonation of an H-bomb that can be mounted on a long-range missile.
