Japan won't compromise on the stern wording of a UN resolution it sponsored to seek sanctions against North Korea over its missile tests, and is pushing for a Monday vote despite China's opposition, a top official said Sunday. "To compromise because of one country which has veto power, even though most other countries support us, sends the wrong message," Foreign Minister Taro Aso said on national broadcaster NHK. "We can't alter our stance." A vote was expected Monday, Aso said.
