North Korea's main trading partner, China, is turning off the trade taps. The move is in response to Pyongyang's nuclear tests and missile launches.
With the UN General Assembly set to focus strongly on North Korea and its recent nuclear tests, Russia and China have called for a "peaceful resolution" with the pariah state. They suggested a "dual track" approach.
Brazilians often look for stories about North Korea on the internet. One reason is a mutual entrenched distrust of the US. Researchers have been trying to dig a little deeper to find out more about the phenomenon.
The EU's expanded North Korea sanctions list is aimed at building pressure on Pyongyang to cease its nuclear program. The EU is also lining up fresh sanctions to rein in the rogue nation.
Even after multiple rounds of sanctions, Pyongyang is continuing to provoke the international community with weapons testing. China and the US face bad options, and each other, in creating a united front.
