MOSCOW - Russia urged North Korea on Wednesday to adhere to restrictions on its nuclear and missile programs, after the UN Security Council expanded existing sanctions against Pyongyang over a rocket launch last month.

"We hope our North Korean neighbors will heed the voice of the international community and return to the path of cooperation ... but for this it is necessary to stay within the bounds of the demands made in UN Security Council resolutions," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
