United Nations, Sep 12 (IANS) The UN Security Council on Monday unanimously adopted a resolution to impose fresh sanctions on North Korea over its nuclear test on September 3 in violation of previous Security Council resolutions.

Monday’s resolution, the third Security Council action concerning the Asian country in five weeks, curtails the country’s oil supply by almost 30 per cent, bans all its textile exports worth $800 million and remittances of labourers from abroad, Xinhua news agency reported.

With the new measures, 90 per cent of the country’s exports are now banned.

Monday’s resolution followed a council resolution on August 5, which imposed a ban on the export of coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore, and seafood from North Korea, among other restrictive measures.

The council also adopted a presidential statement on August 29 condemning North Korea’s launch of a ballistic missile earlier as well as other missile launches on August 25.
