The Heat: DPRK sanctions, US immigration and Trump’s tweet

The Heat

U.S. President Trump

The U.N. Security Council has unanimously approved new sanctions against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. And Pyongyang has a message for Washington.

The DPRK threatened the United States, saying it would face the ‘greatest pain’, following new sanctions imposed by the United Nations.

The U.N. Security Council voted to ban textile exports from the DPRK, restrict oil imports and end new visas for overseas workers.

Monday’s resolution comes a week after Pyongyang carried out its sixth nuclear test.

China supported the sanctions and is calling for the issue to be resolved through diplomatic means.
