The United States circulated a draft UN resolution late Monday that would condemn North Korea's nuclear test and impose tough sanctions on the reclusive communist nation for disregarding the Security Council's appeal not to detonate a device. The draft, obtained by The Associated Press, incorporates proposals circulated by the U.S. earlier in the day, and adds new proposals from Japan that would ban all countries from allowing any North Korean ships in their ports or any North Korean aircraft from taking off or landing in their territory. The new Japanese proposals would also impose travel restrictions on high-ranking North Korean officials.
