US proposes checks on N. Korean cargo

UNITED NATIONS, Oct 9: The United States wants the UN Security Council to authorise international inspections of cargo going in and out of North Korea to check for weapons of mass destruction or related materials, diplomats said on Monday.

US Ambassador John Bolton presented the UN Security Council with 13 elements of a resolution he is drafting in response to Pyongyangs nuclear weapon test, participants in a closed council session said on condition of anonymity.

Other proposals include a total arms embargo and a freeze on assets associated with Pyongyangs possible weapons of mass destruction, the envoys said.

Were looking for very swift action by the Security Council, Mr Bolton told reporters. We think its important to respond even to the claim of a nuclear test by the North Koreans and well be going 24/7 if we need to be to get this resolution adopted quickly.
