The new US draft of a resolution regarding sanctions on North Korea would authorize action against the country under Chapter 7 of the UN Charter, which allows punishments ranging from breaking diplomatic ties and imposing economic sanctions to naval blockades and military actions. But it would only allow measures under Article 41 which authorizes non-military sanctions such as economic penalties, breaking diplomatic relations or banning air travel. The new US draft also eliminates a blanket arms embargo and imposes sanctions on specifies equipment such as tanks and combat aircraft. And it urges North Korea to speedily implement a September 2005 agreement in which it pledged to give up its nuclear program in exchange for aid and security guarantees. The Security Council was expected on Saturday to vote on the draft.
