new york - The United States is not calling for new sanctions against the country after the latest North Korea missile trial.
Washington wants to leave it in the United Nations Security Council with a statement condemning launch and calling on all countries to apply 'strict, full and urgent' existing penalties.
The declaration, which must be endorsed by all fifteen members of the Security Council, is not compelling in contrast to a resolution. According to diplomats, the US and Japan hope that agreement will be reached on the text on Tuesday.
The Security Council imposed sanctions this month after North Korea tested two long-haul missiles in July. According to diplomats, Russia and China, who have the right to veto, only want new sanctions if North Korea is again testing a long-range racket or holding a nuclear test. The rocket that North Korea fled over Japan on Tuesday was only suitable for medium-distance experts.
