The US ambassador to the United Nations is praising the international body's newly-endorsed sanctions against North Korea in response to its recent nuclear tests. Susan Rice told reporters in the White House briefing room Friday that "we're very pleased" with the sanctions. And she called the new resolution, which was embraced by the UN with the support of China and Russia, an "unprecedented" position by the body. The United States and many other nations, including China and Russia, have condemned Pyongyang for its underground nuclear test on May 25 and a series of ground-to-air missile test firings. Rice noted that the newly-passed resolution, among other things, would restrain North Korea's ability to import nuclear contraband.
