US Calls for UN Security Council Vote on North Korea on Monday

The resolution, which the U.S. mission to the United Nations said it wants the United Nations council to vote on September 11, would impose an oil embargo on North Korea and ban its exports of textiles as well as the hiring of North Korean laborers overseas, mostly by Russian Federation and China, U.S. media have reported.

The United States on September 8 formally requested a vote of the United Nations Security Council on a USA resolution to impose severe new economic sanctions on North Korea over its latest nuclear test, despite resistance from China and Russian Federation.
