Finance Minister Assures Financial Market Situation Remains Stable

North Korea had lashed out against the sanctions, calling them "illegal" and vowing to retaliate.

"Now is the time when the worldwide community is required to unite against North Korea's provocative acts, which threaten world peace", the Japanese leader told a press briefing at his office.

"The Security Council also emphasized the vital importance of North Korea immediately showing honest commitment to denuclearization through concrete action and stressed the importance of working to reduce tension on the Korean Peinsula", said Tekeda Alemu, President of the Security Council.

Ciu's remarks came after a press conference given by USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and national security advisor H.R. McMaster, who warned that the US could resort to a military option following North Korea's latest missile test over Japan.

China and Russian Federation on September 15 rejected a call from the United States to take more "direct actions" to deter North Korea's nuclear and missile tests, and said it is up to Washington to defuse the threat through negotiations, Radio Free Europe reports.

The tougher sanctions included restrictions against its trade in oil and petroleum products.
