North Korea is now officially condemned and to restricted from further connections with the world on wepaons technologies. This was set when North Korea rejected the vote on Saturday to Condemn all testing, research and firing of their weapons. The North Korean Ambassador attacked the Security Council with claims that they were bulling his country. The Security Council has put restrictions on North Korea to have no trading or buying of any weapons that have mass destruction capabilities and also locks all buying of materials from North Korea.
U.N. Security Council voted unanimously Saturday to impose limited sanctions on
North Korea for its recent missile tests, and demanded that the reclusive communist nation suspend its ballistic missile program. North Korea immediately rejected the resolution and vowed to launch more missiles.

U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said North Korea set "a world record" for a rejection — 45 minutes — and warned that Pyongyang's failure to comply could lead to further council action. He did not say what that might be.

The resolution bans all U.N. member states from selling material or technology for missiles or weapons of mass destruction to North Korea, and from receiving missiles, banned weapons or technology from Pyongyang.

It condemns North Korea's multiple missile launches on July 5 and demands that North Korea "suspend all activities related to its ballistic missile program" and re-establish a moratorium on missile launches. It strongly urges North Korea to return to six-party talks on its nuclear program, which have been stalled since last September.

"The council has acted swiftly and robustly in response to the reckless and condemnable act of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea."
Chintaro Ito
Japan's Vice Minister for Foreign Affairs

In all reality the U.N. has been waiting for this day for some time now, with the events that have unfolded over the past month. With now North Korea under some type of restriction it is only hoped they will not try to create any havoc with surrounding nations or terror groups. But for North Korea the U.N.’s hand in the matter will not change a thing. Even with the U.N. challenging to be more offensive to North Korea if they decide to completely ignore what has been voted upon. For the interest of the region of North Korea it is pressured by many powers of the world that North Korea must step down from their current position; and also to stop procuring and develop weapons and possibly weapons of mass destruction.

North Korea said it will not stop with the missile testing and further tests will come. North Korea’s only claim is that of they are testing the weapons in the event of self defense for the future. Either way North Korea has an unstable government where anyone at anytime can there hand and launch a missile at any neighboring country. The facts that North Korea is now restricted from the outside world will not stop their current growth from the inside to develop a working ICBM, capable of delivering a Nuclear Weapon.

How is that any different to how North Korea was treated before these limited sanctions? I didnt see a prosperous and open society there? So how does this isolate an already isolated nation?

North Korean civilians are the ultimate loser in all this. You can be asured the NK leaders and their underlings will not be effected by this latest confrontation with the rest of the World.

South Korea knows this and I applaude their continued committment to diplomatic and cultural engagement with their Northern neighbour.

with the North Korea the deal was before that they were an already secluded country there closet ally being China, the UN's current descision I believe just backed up the condemnatiosn of what the world has been saying, for me the UN's vite has helped me to see more about NK than I did not know, but you are right, NK is twice already practically been isolated, but I know through the vote future endeavors to fund or help NK will be watched and punished severly.
