UN Security Council members have met on Saturday to vote on the new North Korea sanctions resolution.

The US-drafted resolution, which was unanimously adopted, is aiming to slash by a third North Korea’s $3 billion annual export revenue in response to Pyongyang’s recent missile tests.

The sanctions, to limit export of coal, iron ore and lead, seek to reduce the country’s revenue by up to $1 billion annually to punish it for recent tests of missiles and bombs.
