FACTBOX - Key U.N. sanctions imposed on North Korea
By Terry Friel
REUTERS - The U.N. Security Council imposed financial and weapons sanction on North Korea on Saturday to punish Pyongyang for its underground nuclear test on Monday. The vote was a unanimous 15-0.
Here are the highlights of the resolution:
* Calls upon countries to take "cooperative" action through inspection of cargo to and from North Korea to prevent illicit trafficking in nuclear, chemical or biological weapons and related materials.
* Decides that North Korea should abandon all nuclear weapons and existing nuclear programs and ballistic missiles programs in a "complete, verifiable and irreversible" manner.
* Bans trade with North Korea on battle tanks, armored combat vehicles, large caliber artillery systems, combat aircraft, attack helicopters, warships, missiles or missile systems.
* Ban trade with North Korea in all items, materials, equipment, goods and technology that could contribute to the country's nuclear-related, ballistic missile-related or other weapons of mass destruction-related programs.
* Bans luxury goods going to North Korea.
* Decides all countries should freeze funds, other financial assets and economic resources that are owned, controlled, directly or indirectly by people engaged in or providing support for North Korea's unconventional weapons.
* Allow a travel ban on people and their families supporting or promoting North Korea's policies on dangerous weapons programs, providing names are approved by a Security Council sanctions committee.
* Encourages efforts to intensify diplomatic efforts, refrain from any actions that might aggravate tension and to facilitate the early resumption of the six-party talks -- between North Korea, South Korea, the United States, Russia, China and Japan -- aimed at convincing Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear ambitions.
