US: N Korea must see that violating UN resolutions has consequences

The US ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, has tweeted her expectations that the United Nations must act on its condemnation of North Korea for its rocket launch:


#UNSC condemned yesterday's missile launch, no matter how North Korea chooses to characterize it, as a violation of two UNSC resolutions.


Security Council must work concertedly to deliver a clear message to Pyongyang: violating #UNSC resolutions has consequences.


North Koreans celebrate launch

Thousands of people have rallied in the North Korean capital Pyong Yang to celebrate a long range rocket launch by the country earlier this week. The United Nations Security Council has condemned North Korea for the launch.
