North Korea resumes work at nuclear test site, analysts say

Activity at North Korea's Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site

Pyongyang's Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, which handles the North's external ties and propaganda, also called for the break-up of the Security Council, which it called "a tool of evil" made up of "money-bribed" countries that move at the order of the US.

"Four Islands of the Japanese archipelago needs to drown in a sea of nuclear bomb Juche", the statement reads. "The summit partners were selected based on the need to seek their cooperation to counter the North's nuclear crisis, bilateral relations and effectiveness to promote the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics".

"I believe what President Trump wanted to say was that, not only South Korea and the U.S., but also China and Russian Federation all together need to respond very firmly against North Korea's nuclear provocations", he said. The measures prohibit all countries from authorizing new work permits for North Korean workers.

In a statement, North Korea responded by calling the actions "state terrorism" and that the "chief culprit" involved in "cooking up the "sanctions resolution", be beaten to death with a stick fit for a rabid dog".

The 15-member Security Council voted unanimously on a US-drafted resolution and a new round of sanctions on Monday, banning North Korea's textile exports that are the second-largest only to coal and mineral, and capping fuel supplies.

But sanctions advocates say that ultimately compelling full compliance from China, Russia, and other countries that undermine United Nations sanctions, will require the U.S.to levy secondary sanctions.

The Korea Times reports that South Korea successfully conducted its first live-fire drill for an advanced air-launched cruise missile on September 12.

The latest round of United Nations sanctions imposed on North Korea this week for conducting its sixth nuclear test, and the restrictions put in place in August for repeated ballistic missile launches, including intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) tests, could potentially have significant impact.

India and Japan on Thursday condemned "in the strongest terms" North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programmes. But on September 12, two days before Pyongyang's statements, President Donald Trump noted the U.S. may take more actions beyond the recently imposed sanctions.

On Wednesday, South Korea's Nuclear Safety and Security Commission said it had detected traces of radioactive xenon gas from the nuclear test. Trump said on Twitter in response to the North's nuclear test.

Seoul apparently notified Tokyo, Washington and others of its deliberations.
