On September 4 2017, the UN had a meeting about DPR Korea. The meeting of the Security Council was the second in less than a week and the tenth time that the most powerful body of the United Nations had met to discuss North Korea this year. Jeffrey Feltman, Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, in an emergency council meeting, said that “The latest serious developments require a comprehensive response in order to break the cycle of provocations from the DPRK,”. He also emphasized that, “such a response must include wise and bold diplomacy to be effective.”. The Secretary- General António Guterres said “We are alarmed by this dangerous provocation,” and also “We will continue to carefully follow the developments and remain in close coordination with the concerned international organizations, Members of the Council and other governments concerned,”. Meanwhile, The Trump Administration urged other members of the United Nations Security Council to cut off all oil and other fuels to the country.
