“We should not delude ourselves that we have solved the problem, we are not even close, the threat from North Korea has not left us, it is only becoming more dangerous,” said US Ambassador to the United Nations Nicky Hailey. “Further action is needed, and the United States is taking and will continue to take equal precautions to protect ourselves and our allies,” she said.

“The UN resolution is the largest economic sanctions package ever imposed on North Korea, with over $ 1 billion in costs to the country,” US President Donald Trump said on Twitter.
