South Korea said Wednesday it formed a task force on how to impose UN sanctions for North Korea's nuclear test, while the government's chief of reconciliation with the North offered to resign because of the test blast. The North's Oct. 9 nuclear test outraged the international community, prompting the UN Security Council to unanimously adopt a sanctions resolution on Oct. 14, although South Korea has been reluctant to adopt stern measures against its volatile neighbor. The UN resolution against the nuclear test calls for all member countries to state their plans on how to implement sanctions on the North. A report should be submitted to the UN sanctions committee no later than 30 days after the resolution's passage.
