South Korea said on Wednesday traces of radioactive xenon gas were confirmed to be from a North Korean nuclear test earlier this month, but it was unable to conclude whether the test had been for a hydrogen bomb as Pyongyang claimed.

Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera yesterday urged tougher sanctions including curbing oil supplies to North Korea.

Park Soo-hyun (Bahk Soo-hyohn), a spokesman for the South Korean president, said he thinks it's significant that China and Russian Federation agreed on the need for stronger sanctions than previous ones.

Han Tae Song, North Korea's ambassador to the United Nations, said he "categorically rejected" what he called an "illegal resolution".

The foreign ministry said Monday that it made a decision to expel Ambassador Kim Hak-chol because of Pyongyang's repeated flaunting of resolutions by the U.N. Security Council against its nuclear program. The FBI is also examining North Korea's link to the theft of $81 million through the New York Fed a year ago, Bloomberg Markets reported last month. And there's also a ban on new work permits for North Korean workers.

Haley said these are by far the strongest measures ever imposed on North Korea.

The US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, told the Security Council after the vote: "We don't take pleasure in further strengthening sanctions today".

China's United Nations ambassador, Liu Jieyi, said Beijing has been making "unremitting efforts" to denuclearize and maintain peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.

The resolution also calls for a ban on North Korea's textile exports - its largest export after coal and other minerals in 2016.

They're not here to speak for themselves so I don't want to disrespect them, but the fact is, they didn't know who the hell I was. McGraw surprised O'Connor with an offer from producer David Foster offering to work with her on new material.

The BBC's China editor Carrie Gracie says Beijing is treading a fine line and wants sanctions tough enough to signal its displeasure to Pyongyang and avoid American accusations of complicity, but not so tough as to threaten North Korea's survival. The same factors that have driven their success-lack of state control and secretiveness-would make them useful fund raising and money laundering tools for a man threatening to use nuclear weapons against the US.

North Korea operates what South Korea believes is an army of hackers expanding its focus from military espionage to financial theft.

As for North Koreans working overseas, the US mission said a cutoff on new work permits will eventually cost North Korea about $500 million a year once current work permits expire.

This will not only starve the regime of any revenues generated through such arrangements, it will now stop all future foreign investments and technology transfers to help North Korea's nascent and weak commercial industries, a U.S. fact sheet said.
