UNITED NATIONS - The United States will submit to the U.N. Security Council on Thursday a draft resolution that would expand sanctions against North Korea over its latest nuclear test, a spokesman for the US mission to the United Nation said.

"Ambassador (Samantha) Power intends to submit for consideration by the Security Council a draft sanctions resolution in response to (North Korea's) recent nuclear test and subsequent proscribed ballistic missile launch," spokesman Kurtis Cooper said in a statement.

"We look forward to working with the council on a strong and comprehensive response to the DPRK's (North Korea's) latest series of tests aimed at advancing their nuclear weapons program," he said.
