(CNN) — The United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted a US-drafted resolution to impose new sanctions on North Korea on Monday --- a move that comes just one week after the rogue nation carried out its sixth and largest nuclear test.

CNN电 联合国安全理事会于周一一致通过了由美国起草的决议,对朝鲜实施新的制裁——就在一周前,这个流氓国家进行了第六次且最大规模的核试验。

The resolution is designed to accomplish six major goals: cap North Korea’s oil imports, ban textile exports, end additional overseas laborer contracts, suppress smuggling efforts, stop joint ventures with other nations and sanction designated North Korean government entities, according to a US official familiar with negotiations.


"Today, we are saying the world will never accept a nuclear armed North Korea, and today the Security Council is saying that if the North Korean regime does not halt its nuclear program, we will act to stop it ourselves," US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said following the vote on Monday.


"We are done trying to prod the regime to do the right thing, we are now trying to stop it from having the ability to do the wrong thing," she added. "We are doing that by hitting North Korea’s ability to fuel and fund its weapons program."


Russia and China both have veto power as permanent members of the Security Council and had expressed skepticism over the initial sanctions proposal. But China said after Monday’s vote it supported the resolution.


"China is consistently committed to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, to the peace and stability of the peninsula and to the solution of the issue through dialogue and consultation," said Chinese Ambassador to the UN Liu Jieyi after the vote.


Ahead of the vote, North Korea warned the United States that it would pay a "due price" if harsh sanctions were passed by the Security Council.
