The UN Security Council unanimously approved tough new sanctions against North Korea on Friday in response to its latest launch of a ballistic missile that Pyongyang says can reach anywhere on the USA mainland.

The US-drafted resolution seeks to limit North Korea's access to petroleum products and industrial equipment.

South Korea predicted on Tuesday that North Korea would look to open negotiations with the United States over its weapons programs next year and pursue at least some rapprochement with Seoul in an optimistic government outlook for 2018.

The ministry said attention is being drawn to whether North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's New Year address will include the direction of the North's policies regarding the South.

"North Korea's nuclear weapons are a self-defensive deterrence not in contradiction of the global law".

North Korea's foreign ministry said: "We define this "sanctions resolution" rigged up by the USA and its followers as a grave infringement upon the sovereignty of our Republic, as an act of war violating peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and the region and categorically reject the "resolution".

"North Korea may continue to advance its nuclear and missile capabilities while searching for an outlet externally", the ministry said in its predictions for North Korea in 2018.

"We define this "sanctions resolution" rigged up by the USA and its followers as a grave infringement upon the sovereignty of our Republic, as an act of war violating peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and the region and categorically reject the 'resolution, '" the statement said.

North Korea said those who voted for the sanctions would face its wrath. The resolution envisages other restrictions that concern exports of industrial equipment, heavy machinery and transport vehicles to North Korea and imports of North Korean commodities.

Tensions have been rising over North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes, which years of United Nations resolutions have failed to deter the regime from pursuing.

USA diplomats have made clear they are seeking a diplomatic solution but President Donald Trump has derided talks as useless and said Pyongyang must commit to giving up its nuclear weapons before any talks can begin.

China, with which North Korea does some 90 percent of its trade, has repeatedly called for calm and restraint from all sides and for a return to talks.

"The difference between the new resolution and the original USA proposal reflects the will of China and Russian Federation to prevent war and chaos on the Korean Peninsula".
