While the US is concerned about the nuclear ambitions of North Korea and Iran, the special UN session to be chaired by US President Barack Obama later in September will seek broad consensus on preventing the spread of nuclear weapons rather than zeroing in on individual nations. US Ambassador Susan Rice said Wednesday that "the session will focus on nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear disarmament broadly, and not on any particular countries." She said the United States was consulting with the 14 other members of the Security Council about the contents of a possible statement or resolution to be issued at the end of the high-level meeting on nuclear issues, to be held September 24 on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly's annual ministerial session. "This is an opportunity to build momentum behind what is a very important priority not only for the United States but indeed for all members of the United Nations," Rice told a news conference.
