U.S. drafts new sanc­tions res­o­lu­tion against North Korea

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

Two UN diplo­mats say the United States is seek­ing new sanc­tions against North Korea fol­low­ing its suc­cess­ful test last week of an in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal bal­lis­tic mis­sile.

The diplo­mats said Mon­day that the draft res­o­lu­tion has been cir­cu­lated to North Korea’s clos­est ally, China, as well as the three other per­ma­nent veto-wield­ing mem­bers of the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil — Rus­sia, Bri­tain and France. The diplo­mats spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause con­sul­ta­tions have been pri­vate. The spokesman for the U.S. Mis­sion to the United Na­tions says he has “no com­ment’’ on the re­port.

The diplo­mats didn’t dis­close any de­tails of the draft res­o­lu­tion.
