The United States has imposed its own sanctions on Pyongyang, as have the European Union, South Korea and Japan. There's a reason why isolating North Korea has been a longstanding, if mostly ineffective policy - it's simply the only reasonable option available. She also personally thanked China for helping move the resolution from talk to action.
The US and other nations have tested Beijing's claims by conducting "freedom of navigation" operations around islands controlled by China. Stocks had nothing on the the world's biggest cryptocurrency, though: Bitcoin was up more than 20 percent at one point in the session, amid allegations that spoofing contributed to the advance.
North Korea has also rejected talks with South Korea, arguing that the overtures of its southern neighbor are disingenuous. The sanctions also target other means by which funds flow into the nation, including some banks and joint ventures made with companies based in other nations.
North Korea says U.S. sanctions effort will reveal U.N. resolutions are unwarranted and unfair, U.N. security council abused its authority. It is overdue for the United States to do the same.

While Kim bets against the strength of the US-South Korean alliance, it's long been the position of both countries that they could prove him catastrophically wrong. "We will use them, if we must, but we prefer not to have to go in that direction". After two recent tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles in July, analysts are starting to believe that's true.
Kono also said Japan supported the United States in its activities in the South China Sea to ensure freedom of navigation, and in a veiled reference to China, opposed "any unilateral attempt to change the status quo by force".
Ri hasn't spoken publicly since arriving in the Philippines.
After the U.N. Security Council unanimously approved a new punitive resolution imposing the toughest sanctions in a generation on North Korea, America's top diplomat urged Pyongyang to put down its missiles and come to the negotiating table.
Once Washington normalizes its relations with North Korea, there is every reason to expect Seoul and Tokyo will follow suit.
Noting Russia and China's participation in the unanimous vote, he told journalists it was clear there was now "no daylight among the international community" on their desire for North Korea to stop its tests.
Last week, North Korea successfully tested its second intercontinental missile in a month.
North Korea has tested three nuclear weapons since the leader took over from his father in 2011.
