UNSC slams North Korea over n-test

Feb 12 2013, 12:42pm CST | by

United Nations, Feb 12 (IANS) The UN Security Council (UNSC) Tuesday strongly condemned North Korea's third nuclear test, saying the latest move by Pyongyang "is a grave violation" of its relevant resolutions, Xinhua reported.

United Nations, Feb 12 — The UN Security Council (UNSC) Tuesday strongly condemned North Korea's third nuclear test, saying the latest move by Pyongyang "is a grave violation" of its relevant resolutions, Xinhua reported.

"The members of the Security Council strongly condemned this test, which is a grave violation of Security Council resolution 1718 (2006), 1874 (2009) and 2087 (2013), and therefore there continues to exist a clear threat to international peace and security," said a statement read to the press by South Korean Foreign Minister Kim Sung-Hwan.

South Korea, one of the 10 non-permanent members of the 15-nation security council, holds the rotating council presidency for February.

Kim is at the UN headquarters in New York to chair an open debate of the security council on the protection of civilians in armed conflict.

North Korea Tuesday said it has successfully conducted the third underground nuclear test, according to the official KCNA news agency.

The test was part of the country's "practical measures of counteraction" to defend its security and sovereignty against hostile US policies, which it claimed have violated North Korea's " rights to launch satellite for peaceful purposes," the KCNA reported.

Dear Ms. Power: I recently read your statement decrying the UN General Assembly's election of Venezuela to the UN Security Council. This statement, so obviously laden with hypocrisy, necessitated this response. You premise your opposition to Venezuela's ascendancy to the Security Council on your claim that "From ISIL and Ebola to Mali and the Central African Republic, the Security Council must meet its ...

New Zealand: Time for a Small Country on the UN Security Council

Aug 30 2014 10:53am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

I believe that few people could name more than five members of the UN Security Council. The U.S., Russia and China certainly. Think hard and you would probably add in the United Kingdom and -- maybe -- France, as the countries who hold the power of "nay" or "aye" over key actions of the United Nations, including how the UN addresses conflicts arising around the world. There are 10 other countries who are non-permanent members ele ...
