WATCH: US warns China, Russia must comply with sanctions on North Korea

The United Nations Security Council will vote Monday on a draft resolution imposing new sanctions on North Korea after the United States toned down its demands in a bid to win support from Russia and China.

The new measures will target the country's textile exports and also seek to cap the number of North Koreans who work abroad and repatriate money at the current level of 100,000.

It's hardly surprising that Beijing empathises with North Korean insecurity, given that for decades it suspected the US of plans for containment and regime change to remove the Chinese Communist Party.

The resolution was not as severe as the US originally wanted - with no oil import ban or international asset freeze on the government and leader Kim Jong Un. The malware used in these attacks have been linked to North Korean groups suspects of attacks targeting global banks last year, FireEye said. And a way to avoid accusations of complicity from Washington and any danger of its economy suffering significant damage from secondary sanctions against Chinese companies. One reason China is leery of economic suffocation is fear that North Korea, if put in a corner, might lash out in a "use it or lose" situation.

A Treasury Department official points to China's willingness to "increase the pressure" on North Korea and a lack of clarity on whether "the Russians are willing to go along with that", the Post reported.

South Korea has become one of the world's busiest trading hubs for cryptocurrencies, with Seoul-based Bithumb ranking as the world's largest exchange for the ethereum virtual currency.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the United States was "not looking for war" and if North Korea agreed to stop its nuclear program, it could "reclaim its future".

However, in a joint statement at the BRICS Summit, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin "deplored" the nuclear test while emphasizing that the crisis "should only be settled through peaceful means and direct dialogue".

The sanctions and pressure racket of the completely obliterate the DPRK's sovereignty and right to existence is reaching an extremely reckless phase.

In the wake of what Pyongyang claimed was the detonation Sept. 3 of a hydrogen bomb that could be delivered on a missile capable of reaching the United States, Royce told columnist Josh Rogin, "I believe we have to come in full throttle with cutting off institutions, primarily financial institutions domiciled in China". It was meant to be maximalist.

"My suggestion and my recommendation is that to solve the problem in [North] Korea, you need to solve that problem with China".

Mansky's proposal is to leave North Korea alone in its self-imposed isolation - that is, if the civilized world can stand the thought of Kim's regime committing its endless crime against the North Korean people and bear with the constant taunting of missile launches and threats.
