The United States circulated a new draft UN resolution on North Korea early Thursday that adds a travel ban but softens language on cargo inspections and financial sanctions to try to get Russian and Chinese support. The draft does not include Japanese demands to prohibit North Korean ships from entering any port or North Korean aircraft from taking off or landing in any country. These sanctions proposed by Tokyo are tougher than those sought by Washington and would likely face strong Russian and Chinese opposition. The United States hopes to pass a new Security Council resolution on Friday to punish North Korea for its claimed nuclear test in defiance of council appeals not to detonate a device, U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said.
