UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The U.N. Security Council voted on Saturday to impose financial and arms sanctions on North Korea to punish the reclusive Communist nation for its nuclear weapon test.
The vote was 15-0.
The U.S.-drafted resolution allows nations to stop cargo going to and from North Korea to check for weapons of mass destruction or related supplies. But the measure specifically excludes military force.
It requires all countries to prevent the sale or transfer of materials related to Pyongyang’s unconventional weapons programs. And the resolution demands nations freezes funds overseas of people or businesses connected with North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
Update: The NoKo representative to the UN walked out after the UNSC unanomously voted to sanctions against his country. Allahpundit has video of Ambassador John Bolton’s reaction.
