UNSC vows tough actions against N. Korea over future nuclear tests
South Korea’s U.N. envoy Kim Sook said that any blast would be “a dangerous attempt to undermine the authority and credibility of the Security Council.”
Talking to reporters at the world body’s headquarters as South Korea takes role of council’s presidency this month, Sook said that the 15-member council is unified, very firm and resolute.
“We cannot sit idly by and do nothing vis-a-vis some devastating provocative action done by North Korea,” the envoy added.
The envoy’s remarks came just days after North Korea vowed to carry out new round of nuclear tests. The experts predict that North Korea may conduct the test between February 10-16.
The Lunar New Year falls on February 11 and former president late Kim Jong-Il’s birthday falls on February 16.
