Prime Minister Shinzo Abe urged all U.N. member states Wednesday to block North Korea's access to "the goods, funds, people and technology" necessary for its nuclear arms and missile programs.

In his address at the annual U.N. General Assembly in New York, on the heels of a sixth nuclear test and a series of ballistic missile launches by North Korea, Abe said history shows that attempts at dialogue with the North "have all come to naught."

Abe demanded that all states strictly and fully enforce the series of U.N. Security Council resolutions targeting North Korea, saying the world must unite to make Pyongyang change its policies.
