North Korea is already under a range of worldwide and United States sanctions over its nuclear programme and missile tests.

The unanimous approval of this historic package of sanctions is a clear sign that the global community is united in the effort to maximize pressure on the North Korean regime.

The move comes days after Kim met Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) and an announcement that the North Korean leader would meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in on April 27. But Washington and its allies have vowed to keep up with sanctions until the North commits to denuclearizing.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un recently met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing as part of the young despot's first trip overseas since he became the leader of North Korea. His country has also refrained from conducting major weapons tests since late November, when it launched an intercontinental ballistic missile that analysts said could be powerful enough to reach the mainland United States.

Kim kept up his relative diplomatic openness by meeting the president of International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach, in Pyongyang on Friday.

In addition, 12 North Korean companies are accused of having participated in illegal shipments of oil and fuel.
