North Korea calls latest UN sanctions an act of war

According to North Korea’s foreign ministry, the latest round of UN sanctions are “an act of war,” and threatened to punish those who supported the measure. The UN Security Council imposed new sanctions on North Korea on Friday due to its recent ICBM test, seeking to limit its access to refined petroleum products and crude oil along with its earnings from workers abroad.

The new resolution seeks to ban nearly 90% of refined petroleum exports by capping them at 500,000 barrels a year and demands the “repatriation of North Koreans working abroad within 24 months”. The US-drafted resolution also caps crude oil supplies to North Korea at 4 million barrels a year and commits the Council to further reductions if the North conducts another ICBM/nuclear test.

In a statement, North Korea’s foreign ministry said the US is “terrified” by its nuclear force and was getting “more and more frenzied in the moves to impose the harshest-ever sanctions and pressure on our country”.

United States demands Russia close down their consulate buildings in 3 states

The US has demanded that Russia close their consulate in San Francisco and buildings in Washington and NY. This is in retaliation for (Russia) cutting American diplomatic presence in the country.

“We believe this action (diplomatic staff cut) was unwarranted and detrimental to the overall relationship between our countries,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said this morning. “In the spirit of parity invoked by the Russians, the United States has required the Russian government to close its San Francisco consulate and two annexes in Washington, D.C. and New York by Sept. 2.”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson informed Russian FM Sergei Lavrov in a phone call today. Lavrov “expressed regret” about the decision during the phone call with Tillerson. “Moscow will closely study the new measures announced by the Americans, after which our reaction will be conveyed,” the Russian FM said.
