Washington, May 26 (DPA) The US said Tuesday it wanted a further, tougher UN resolution in response to North Korea’s latest nuclear and missile tests.
“We want a resolution that provides a strong response from the Security Council to this provocation of North Korea,” said State Department deputy spokesman Ian Kelly.

He termed the short-range missile tests which followed the nuclear test “a provocation”, but declined to go into detail about what a new UN resolution would contain.

“Our patience obviously is not indefinite, but we feel the door does remain open, that we are ready to engage,” Kelly said. “And we hope that North Korea will make the right choice and choose to engage constructively.”
