Over in New York
The U.S. and China have reached a deal that greatly expands UN sanctions on North Korea for its February 12th nuclear test.
Speaking after the 15-nation Council met in a closed-door meeting Washington's ambassador to the UN Susan Rice said the sanctions were the "toughest" the UN has ever imposedand that they will "significantly impede" the North from further developing its missile and nuclear programs.
China's UN envoy, Li Baodong said Beijing supported the move.
The new resolution is set to be drafted sometime this week.
Meanwhile, U.S. lawmakers are pushing for tougher financial restrictions on Pyongyang, which is believed to have made hundreds of millions of dollars from counterfeiting U.S. currency.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says he hopes North Korea comes back to the negotiating table, instead of threatening the international community.
