Russia sees wide agreement on North Korea resolution

Russia's UN ambassador said Thursday there is wide agreement among key world powers on what a new UN resolution should include to respond to North Korea's second nuclear test which violated a Security Council ban. But Vitaly Churkin cautioned that putting the elements together and getting agreement will take time because the issues are"complicated" and there are many suggestions. "It would maybe take 10 resolutions to incorporate them all," he said.
