THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: US and China exchanged views on new UNSC sanctions

The United States and China have begun exchanging views on the level of new UNSC sanctions against North Korea for their fifth nuclear test.

Last week, the Security Council held urgent consultations to discuss the North's nuclear test. After the meeting, they condemned the test and pledged to immediately begin working on a new resolution to impose sanctions on the North.

 UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon urged the council to unite and send a strong message against the Korean Peninsula. In the meantime, South Korea has yet to find any traces of radioactivity from North Korea's latest nuclear test confirming the country remains safe from nuclear fallout.

The commission added South Korea's background radiation currently remains at the usual level of 50-300 nanosieverts per hour, apparently unaffected by the North's nuclear test.
