WASHINGTON, Sept. 12 (Yonhap) -- The United States warned China on Tuesday that it will put "additional sanctions" on the country if it fails to implement newly adopted U.N. Security Council sanctions against North Korea.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin made the remark a day after the Security Council unanimously passed new sanctions to punish North Korea for its sixth nuclear test on Sept. 3.

"If China doesn't follow these sanctions, we will put additional sanctions on them and prevent them from accessing the U.S. and international dollar system, and that's quite meaningful," Mnuchin said during a conference broadcast on CNBC.
