North Korea attacks Bitcoin bods to swell its war chest says FireEye


The comments Tuesday came as North Korea faced renewed criticism at the Geneva-based body of its recent ballistic missile and nuclear weapons tests.

DPRK stands for the North's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

"The forthcoming measures to be taken by the DPRK will cause the United States the greatest pain and suffering it had ever gone through in its entire history", the ministry said.

"The world will witness how the DPRK tames the United States gangsters by taking (a) series of action tougher than they have ever envisaged".

"This bill will put sharp enforcement teeth behind United Nations sanctions and send a clear message to anyone who has any business dealings with North Korean entities - you can do business with them or you can do business with the U.S., but you can't do business with both", the senator said.

With this decision, the top body is imposing a ban on all oil imports and an global asset freeze on the government and leader Kim Jong Un that the Trump administration wanted.

"Oil exports to North Korea will drop by almost 40%, a huge blow to its energy supply", Lu said, reacting to the new round of sanctions by the United Nations following North Korea's hydrogen bomb test. Although, the North Korean officials have warned the USA, saying "a very strong response, with unbearable consequences" will be faced by Washington, based on the increased pressure they are experiencing from US' side.

Government estimates of the yield from its sixth nuclear test vary from South Korea's 50 kilotons to Japan's 160, but 38 North, which is linked to Johns Hopkins University in the U.S., raised its estimate to "roughly 250 kilotons", in line with upward revisions for the magnitude of the resulting tremor.

According to the U.S. officials, added to the sanctions imposed on North Korea previously, new restrictions would cut North Korea's exports by 90%.

It was the ninth such resolution unanimously adopted by the 15-member Security Council over North Korea's ballistic missile and nuclear programs since 2006.

During the discussions, the freezing of assets of north Korean leader, in which Moscow did not want to, has been removed from the text.

Trump said he'd taken a liking to the Chinese leader, but in the months since, he's reverted to criticizing China for its trade policies and accused the country of failing to exert sufficient pressure on North Korea.

"We hope that the members of the council will reach a consensus on the basis of full consultation and make a voice of solidarity", he said.

Washington and its allies say these legitimate defensive measures are not comparable to the North's threatening nuclear program that has been banned and sanctioned by the United Nations Security Council.

The United States watered down a tougher draft of the resolution in order to win the support of China and Russian Federation, reports Reuters.

South Korea's Nuclear Safety and Security Commission said Wednesday it had collected a small amount of xenon-133 - a radioactive isotope of the inert gas that does not occur naturally - that was "linked to the latest nuclear test".

Australia is playing down North Korean threats to inflict the "greatest pain" on the USA following additional sanctions on the rogue nation.
