N.Korea vows to take 'corresponding measures' if United Nations adopts sanctions

Beijing agreed in March 2016 to enforce United Nations sanctions following North Korea's test of a missile possibly capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

The two Koreas have been divided since the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty.

But it's unclear if those talks will be realized. The two sides technically remain at war but Moon, who came to power in May, has pledged to engage the North in dialogue as well as bring pressure to impede its nuclear and missile programmes.

The bipartisan legislation on North Korea introduced last week in Washington may be treading new territory with sanctions against at least one Chinese garment company suspected of hiring North Korean forced laborers. Moon's two conservative predecessors suspended large aid shipments and major cooperation projects, and cross-border communication hotlines have been shut down.

If the meeting goes ahead, it would be the first official inter-Korea talks since December 2015.

The timing and scope of the USA action will depend heavily on how China responds to pressure for tougher steps against North Korea when US and Chinese officials meet for a high-level economic dialogue in Washington Wednesday, the administration sources told Reuters. After the North fired an ICBM on July 4, Moon quickly condemned the launch as a "reckless" and "irresponsible" provocation. South Korean acting Red Cross chief Kim Sun Hyang told a news conference that it wants separate talks at the border village on August 1 to discuss family reunions.

There was no immediate response by the North to the proposal for talks later this week.

129 countries set to approve nuclear ban treaty
In this respect, a treaty banning nuclear weapons risks affecting the security of the Euro-Atlantic region and worldwide stability.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Monday offered formal talks with Mr. Kim's regime.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is sending tens of thousands of North Koreans to Russian Federation in order to carry out what is being described as slave-like labor and earn money for his regime in Pyongyang, according to Fox News.

During a U.N. Security Council meeting last week, Haley threatened secondary sanctions if the council could not agree on new sanctions - though she did not cite China by name. "Ninety percent of the economy of North Korea depends on China". In all, the North has conducted five nuclear tests and numerous missile tests.

Outside experts believe the South Korean broadcasts and leaflets sting in Pyongyang more because the authoritarian country worries that the broadcasts will demoralize front-line troops and residents and eventually weaken the grip of absolute leader Kim Jong Un.

Tongilgak is a North Korean building at the Panmunjom truce village on the border used for previous inter-Korea talks. But the North might set a precondition for the talks, such as a suspension of annual South Korean-U.S. military drills that it views as an invasion rehearsal, according to Koh Yu-hwan, a professor at Seoul's Dongguk University. Officials have insisted, however, they would only act at South Korea's request. Prospects for talks on family reunions are less good because North Korea has previously demanded that South Korea repatriate some North Korean defectors living in the South before any reunions take place, according to the analysts.

South Korean officials have long called for holding reunions more regularly and expanding the number of people taking part. Oil products are sold by weight in North Korea.
