US Bows to Russian and Chinese Demands on North Korea
The US Embassador to the UN, John Bolton has always believed in walking loudly and carrying a stick of imaginary large proportions. Now he's having to eat his words on the usefulness of the UN (see video above).
UNITED NATIONS - The United States circulated a new draft of a
U.N. Security Council resolution onNorth Korea Wednesday night that softens language on cargo inspections and financial sanctions to try to win Russian and Chinese support.
The draft, obtained by The Associated Press, would impose a travel ban on people supporting North Korea's nuclear, ballistic missile and other weapons-related programs.
It does not include Japanese demands to bar North Korean ships and aircraft from ports and airports around the world in response to North Korea's claimed nuclear test Monday. That proposal would likely face strong opposition by Russia and China, which have vetoes on the council.
