France, U.K., Ja­pan want North Korea sanc­tions vote

The Washington Times Daily - - FROM PAGE ONE -

UNITED NA­TIONS | France, Bri­tain and Ja­pan are hop­ing for a speedy vote on a U.N. res­o­lu­tion that would im­pose new sanc­tions against North Korea fol­low­ing its tests of an in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal bal­lis­tic mis­sile — but Rus­sia says the text still needs to be dis­cussed and there’s no agree­ment yet.

The United States gave China, North Korea’s neigh­bor and ally, a pro­posed res­o­lu­tion sev­eral weeks ago.

But Rus­sia’s new U.N. Am­bas­sador Vass­ily Neben­zia said there has been no dis­cus­sion yet among the five per­ma­nent mem­bers of the Se­cu­rity Coun­cil — the U.S., Rus­sia, China, Bri­tain and France — so “there was no agree­ment yet.”
