U.N. Security Council to vote on N. Korea sanctions Wednesday

NEW YORK, March 1, Kyodo

The United Nations Security Council will vote on Wednesday morning to adopt a new sanctions resolution against North Korea, the U.S. mission said on Tuesday.

The vote on the U.S.-drafted document was expected Tuesday after the U.S. had made a request to Angola for the council's action. Angola chairs the council for March.

Russia invoked a 24-hour review procedure to review the document's proposals, the U.S. mission said.

The new resolution is in response to North Korea's latest nuclear test in January and its rocket launch the following month using ballistic missile technology, both of which are banned for the country under past resolutions.

In addition to tightening existing financial sanctions against North Korea, the resolution also adds an export ban on aviation fuel, including rocket fuel, and requires inspection of all cargo in transit to or from the country, among other measures.
