UN diplomats on Thursday said the Security Council is expected to approve tough new sanctions against North Korea on Friday. The draft resolution, which would impose new sanctions on the reclusive communist nation's weapons exports and financial dealings, and allow inspections of suspect cargo, was put into final form on Thursday. The Security Council is expected to meet Friday morning to approve it.
