Donald Trump says United States to target firms doing business with North Korea

He said North Korea's textiles, fishing, information technology and manufacturing industries were among possible targets.

President Donald Trump added economic action to his fiery military threats against North Korea on Thursday, authorizing stiffer new sanctions in response to the Koreans' nuclear weapons advances.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said banks doing business in North Korea would not be allowed to also operate in the United States.

The decision to send aid to North Korea was not popular in South Korea, hitting President Moon Jae-in's approval rating.

Ri, who was talking to reporters in NY ahead of a planned address later this week, however also said he did not know Kim's exact thoughts, according to the report. The United Nations Security Council recently held two unanimous 15-0 votes adopting hard-hitting resolutions against North Korea, and I want to thank China and Russian Federation for joining the vote to impose sanctions, along with all of the other members of the Security Council... But they have yet to stop the communist nation's leader Kim Jong Un from launching ballistic missile tests, and did not prevent a massive nuclear test earlier this month. He thanked President Xi Jinping for what he called a "bold" and "somewhat unexpected" move. "In the end, there will only be losers", Gabriel said in his address, three days before Germany's election.

Tensions have risen in recent weeks over North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile tests, despite intense pressure from world powers. He mocked Kim as a "Rocket Man" on a "suicide mission", and sketched out potentially cataclysmic consequences.

Trump had threatened to "totally destroy North Korea" in his first address to the General Assembly.

McKinney, a retired Army colonel who spent more than 40 years working on US-Korea military planning, said he was more concerned that North Korea may test-fire a missile toward Guam, a US territory in the Pacific.

"Under such understanding, the leaders of the three countries agreed on the need for the worldwide community to put maximum pressure and sanctions to the level that North Korea can not withstand and voluntarily come to the dialogue table", she added.

He announced the measures as he met leaders from South Korea and Japan, the nations most immediately imperiled by North Korea's threats of a military strike. "Only through the toughest economic sanctions along with sustained diplomacy can we force North Korea to the negotiating table". Asked for comment last week, the Foreign Ministry said China has always fully implemented United Nations sanctions on North Korea but opposes "unilateral" restrictions imposed by another country on Chinese entities. "I think we're making a lot of progress in a lot of ways", Mr Trump told reporters. Until recently, however, such sanctions had limited effects because North Korea continued an expansive trade with other countries, mainly China.

"The brutal North Korean regime does not respect its own citizens or the sovereignty of other nations".

"The two leaders shared a view on the need for the strongest pressure and sanctions against North Korea to deter North Korea's provocative activities and make it start taking steps toward denuclearization", he said.

In 2016, North Korea had exports worth around $3 billion, a vital source of revenue for the regime, according to the East-West Center. Trump's order also bans any aircraft or ship that has traveled to North Korea from landing in the United States. The South's Unification Ministry said its aid policy remained unaffected by geopolitical tensions with the North.
