Trump tells UN to prepare new North Korea sanctions

US President Donald Trump has said the UN Security Council must be prepared

to impose new sanctions on North Korea. Trump met the 15 UN Security Council ambassadors, including from China and Russia, at the White House on Monday. "The council must be prepared to impose additional and stronger sanctions on North Korean nuclear and ballistic missile programmes," he said. US officials have told Reuters tougher sanctions could include an oil embargo, banning North Korea's airline, intercepting cargo ships and punishing Chinese banks and other foreign doing business with Pyongyang. Trump said North Korea "is a real threat to the world". "North Korea is a big world problem and it's a problem that we have to finally solve," he said. “People put blindfolds on for decades and now it’s time to solve the problem."
