Tougher sanctions have been imposed on North Korea after the UN Security Council voted yesterday to take action against the regime’s recent nuclear tests.
The US-drafted resolution includes measures to reduce the country’s petrol imports by up to 90 per cent.
President Trump has tweeted to say the world wants “peace, not death”.
