Pyongyang's envoy to the United Nations accused Washington of opting for "political, economic and military confrontation".
A 2016 meeting between Ri Su-yong, North Korea's foreign minister at the time, and President Xi Jinping led to a rare photo-op of the Chinese leader with a senior figure from Pyongyang but yielded few results.
United States disarmament ambassador Robert Wood took the floor to say the Security Council resolution "frankly sent a very clear and unambiguous message to the regime that the global community is exhausted, is no longer willing to put up provocative behaviour from this regime".
"The forthcoming measures to be taken by the DPRK will cause the United States the greatest pain and suffering it had ever gone through in its entire history".
"Instead of making [the] right choice with rational analysis. the Washington regime finally opted for political, economic and military confrontation, obsessed with the wild dream of reversing the DPRK's development of nuclear force - which has already reached the completion phase".

The three previous administrations naively thought we could talk the North Korean regime out of its pursuit of nuclear weapons, which, to repeat, is the main reason for existence. "The choice is theirs".
The Security Council resolution approved a watered-down version compared with what the United States and its allies had sought: a full embargo on North Korea's crucial crude oil supply, which would have crippled the country.
Monday's resolution was the ninth one unanimously adopted by the United Nations since 2006.
"We wanted those who would be inclined to water down the text to own that position", said the USA official. Some members of the ruling Democratic Party echoed the call last week, with Rep. Jung Sung-ho saying that an "all-out" change to Seoul's North Korea policy was needed.
The resolution, including a total ban on North Korea's seafood exports, was adopted in response to its launches of two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July.
North Korea's sixth nuclear test once again puts China's relationship with its troublesome neighbour under the spotlight.
