The UN Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice has tweeted about today's unanimous vote by Security Council members to approve new sanctions against North Korea:
The strength, breadth & severity of the #DPRK sanctions will make it much more difficult for them to pursue their WMD & missile programs.
We regret that North Korea has again chosen the path of provocation, instead of path of peace. It’s time for North Korea to change course.
