The US has formally requested a UN Security Council vote on Monday on tough new sanctions against North Korea despite resistance from China and Russian Federation, as Pyongyang's state media calls for a nuclear arms buildup.
China and Russian Federation expressed a desire to focus on coaxing Kim into negotiations, although China's top diplomat, Foreign Minister Wang Yi, said he agreed it is necessary to impose further sanctions on North Korea.
The US has called for a UN Security Council (UNSC) meeting to vote on a draft resolution to impose additional sanctions on North Korea. The draft with the proposed penalties has already circulated the council members on Wednesday.
One month after a ban on coal, iron and shellfish imports from North Korea, diplomatic sources said council members are seeking new measures to punish Pyongyang for its sixth and largest nuclear test on September 3.
Washington has presented a draft United Nations resolution calling for an oil embargo on North Korea, an assets freeze on Kim Jong-Un, a ban on textiles and an end to payments of North Korean guest workers.
North Korea has been able to conduct multiple tests of ballistic missiles and carry out nuclear tests because it is able to circumvent loosely enforced sanctions, according to a South Korean television network.
South Korean officials have said they are bracing for a possible further missile test by North Korea when it marks its founding anniversary on September 9.

President Donald Trump's administration is pushing the Security Council to adopt a united stance as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un seeks the capability to strike the U.S. with a nuclear weapon.
As for the North Koreans, their official news agency Friday said the country's "nuclear weaponization. has reached its final phase".
"We have taken an incremental approach, and despite the best of intentions, it has not worked", Haley said.
After the test, Trump said he was considering suspending trade with any country that did business with Pyongyang and hinted that he did not rule out an attack on North Korea.
The US is willing to risk a veto of its proposal rather than see it watered down, according to a Security Council diplomat who asked not to be identified while negotiations are ongoing.
He explained that this would force the USA, and possibly Japan and South Korea, to try to do things unilaterally to increase pressure on North Korea.
Mexico has given North Korea's ambassador 72 hours to leave the country, though Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray later said it had not broken off diplomatic ties.
