The United States hopes to pass a new draft UN Security Council resolution on Friday to punish North Korea over its claimed nuclear test, US Ambassador John Bolton said early Thursday. The new draft, which the US will formally introduce on Thursday, is part of American and Japanese efforts for a quick Security Council rebuke to the North for its alleged test Monday, which raised tension surrounding Pyongyang's clandestine nuclear program and drew near-universal condemnation from around the world. "There are still a lot of comments that have been made, and areas of disagreement, but as we've said repeatedly, we think this requires a strong and swift response," Bolton said Wednesday after a meeting with the ambassadors of Britain, France and Japan. "Now, we're certainly prepared for further discussion but today is late Wednesday and to have a vote by the end of the week, we need to move expeditiously tomorrow, which we're going to try to do," he added.
