UN Security Council to vote on new North Korea sanctions

UNITED NATIONS- The UN Security Council plans to vote on a resolution on Tuesday that would dramatically expand existing UN sanctions on North Korea in response to its Jan. 6 nuclear test, the US mission to the United Nations said on Monday.
The vote is expected at 3 p.m. (2000 GMT) on Tuesday, an official at the mission told Reuters.
Last week the United States presented to the 15-nation council a draft resolution it negotiated with China that would significantly tighten restrictions after North Korea's nuclear test and rocket launch, and create what it described as the toughest UN sanctions regime in two decades.
