Security Council adopts measures capping N. Korean oil, banning migrant labor

Resolution 2397 cuts the DPRK's supplies of both refined fuel products and crude oil

The UN Security Council (UNSC) on Friday issued a new resolution aimed at stifling North Korea's fuel imports, food and machinery shipments abroad, and granting member states increased powers to interdict suspicious vessels.

The new measures will also compel member states to return all North Korean laborers working within their borders and their handlers within two years.
