The EU has also posed tougher restrictions on North Korean workers in the EU as well.

"Australia is showing risky moves of zealously joining the frenzied political and military provocations of the USA", said the North Korean spokesperson.

European Union foreign ministers agreed Monday to a total ban on European Union investment in the communist country, a measure that goes beyond the latest United Nations sanctions.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has previously vowed that if there was a military conflict between North Korea and the U.S. then Australia would join the conflict behind its ally.

The European Union imposed new sanctions on North Korea Monday as part of worldwide efforts to punish Pyongyang for its nuclear and ballistic weapons programs.

Foreign minister Ms Bishop told reporters on Sunday that while the threats are honest, Australia is not a primary target - and reminded media it wasn't the first time the country had been threatened by Kim Jong-un. "They mean the complicated 70-year history of relations with the US", Matvienko said.

Asked if there was any intelligence suggesting further ballistic or nuclear tests as soon as this week, Ms Bishop said there are "expectations that North Korea will continue its provocative behaviour".

Ms Bishop said North Korea was entirely to blame for escalating tensions in the region, because it had defied UN Security Council resolutions and pressed ahead with nuclear tests.

Australia's Veterans Affairs Minister Dan Tehan echoed Bishop's remarks in an interview with Sky News.

"The North Koreans should do what the global community have asked them to do - obey all the security council resolutions which have been passed, condemning their missile activity, condemning their attempts to build nuclear weapons".

According to the news agency, Bishop expressed her country's support for the U.S. stance in using all options, including military force, against North Korea, ABC News reported.
