South Korea's foreign minister warned North Korea it'll pay "the heaviest price" in new sanctions if it defies the international community and goes ahead with a new nuclear test.
Chairing a meeting on weapons of mass destruction at the UN Security Council on Wednesday Yun Byung-se said a new test would have a huge impact on the strategic landscape in Northeast Asia and could undermine the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty.
Pyongyang has said it still plans to test a new kind of nuclear device following U.S. President Obama's visit to South Korea.
In the event of a new test, Yun said the UN Security Council must fill all loopholes in the four rounds of sanctions it has already imposed on the North over its nuclear and ballistic missile programs and individual countries must take similar tough measures.
