The US diplomat pressing for implementation of UN sanctions intended to derail North Korea's rogue nuclear weapons program said Thursday that he was off to "an unprecedented start" in getting governments to enforce the punishing new measures. Philip Goldberg, who just returned from a tour of Asia, told reporters after meeting privately with the Security Council committee monitoring the implementation of sanctions against Pyongyang that there is "a very strong commitment" not just by China and the US but by all 192 member states to enforce the "unprecedented measures." The Security Council imposed tough new sanctions on North Korea on June 12, strengthening an arms embargo and authorizing ship searches on the high seas to try to rein in its nuclear program after Pyongyang's second nuclear test on May 25, violating a council resolution adopted after its first nuclear blast in 2006.
