On September 11, 2017, the UN Security Council passed Resolution 2375, imposing new sanctions on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and condemning Pyongyang’s nuclear test on September 2. The Council stated that test was conducted “in flagrant disregard” of the Security Council’s resolutions, and it reaffirmed that the DPRK must “not conduct any further launches that use ballistic missile technology, nuclear tests, or any other provocation.” The sanctions include bans on natural gas sales, textile exports, as well as limits on refined petroleum and crude oil. The Council also decided to prohibit member states from providing work authorizations for DPRK nationals to work within their territories unless given special permission. The UN press release notes that the Security Council also called for the “resumption of the Six-Party Talks—multilateral negotiations involving China, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation and the United States—expressing its commitment to a peaceful, diplomatic and political solution to the situation on the Korean Peninsula.”
