US asks UN to block textile exports from N Korea
The United States of America is asking the UN to banning the exports of North Korean textiles and freezing the assets of leader Kim Jong Un. A draft resolution also reportedly proposes impose an oil embargo on North Korea following the secretive country’s latest nuclear test. The 15 security council members could vote on the measures. A resolution needs nine votes in favour and no vetoes by the United States, Britain, France, Russia or China to pass, however it is unclear if China will back the proposition.
