The nuclear explosion that took place in September caused a 5.3 magnitude earthquake occurred in South Korea and has now been recorded as their fifth and largest test, bigger than those used to bomb Hiroshima.
The United Nations Security Council collectively agreed to ban Kim Jong-Un’s communist country from selling their bronze statues – arguably their most fanciful export – which is set to slash their income by more than a quarter.
Shortly after the destructive test, officials from Pyongyang boasted that the blast was so successful, North Korea will now be able to produce “a variety of smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear warheads of higher strike power”.
The 15 nations in the UN Security Council wanted to punish the tyrannical state and also decided to impose sanctions the sales of the country”s biggest export, coal, by a whopping 60 per cent.
A US official, choosing to remain anonymous said to the Washington Post:
“Have the sanctions that the Security Council has imposed caused the DPRK to abandon its nuclear program? Clearly the answer to that is no.
@realDonaldTrump Bill Clinton allowed North Korea to have nuclear power, and Bill Clinton lost the Nuclear Codes..”the biscuit”…was lost

“A different question to ask is: Have they impeded the DPRK’s nuclear and ballistic missile program from the development that it otherwise would have been able to do? I’m quite confident that the answer to that is yes.”
The communist country will now only receive £42.9m ($53.5m) for their exports of coal from China, who is believed to be their only consumer for the raw material.
Pyongyang Mansudae Art Studio, one of the world”s biggest producers of political-propaganda sculptures could suffer are expected to be dealt a body-blow by the ban, with more than 1,000 artists working at the workshop.
