North Korea sanctions should be implemented 'swiftly and robustly': UK PM May's spokesman

LONDON (Reuters) - Countries should implement agreed sanctions on North Korea “swiftly and robustly”, British Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokesman said on Monday.

The U.N. Security Council unanimously imposed new sanctions on North Korea on Saturday aimed at pressuring Pyongyang to end its nuclear program. The sanctions could slash North Korea’s $3 billion annual export revenue by a third.
