Emergency meeting of UNSC over North Korea

Terming the nuclear test conducted by North Korea as a clear threat to international peace and security, the UN Security Council has warned that it will impose new sanctions against North Korea. The 15-nation Security Council, including China, held urgent consultations to address evolving situation after the nuclear tests. The UNSC members condemned the test, saying it was a clear violation of Security Council resolutions.
Earlier, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon denounced North Korea's nuclear test as "deeply troubling" and "profoundly destabilising" for regional security as he called on Pyongyang to halt its nuclear programmes. Three previous tests in 2006, 2009 and 2013 triggered waves of UN sanctions against the impoverished nation.
