UNITED NATIONS — The U.S. responded Monday to North Korea's claim of a successful first test of a nuclear weapon by calling on the United Nations Security Council to enact wide-ranging sanctions, including a trade ban on military and luxury items, the power to inspect all cargo entering or leaving the country, and freezing assets connected with its weapons programs.
The strongly worded request came as U.S. Ambassador John Bolton told the Security Council that Washington would view any North Korean aggression against South Korea or Japan as an attack on the United States, U.N. diplomats said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the meeting was closed. The United States has defense agreements with Tokyo and Seoul, and thousands of U.S. troops are stationed in both countries.
Bolton echoed the stern warning delivered earlier in the day by President Bush, who called North Korea's nuclear test "unacceptable" and 'provocative," and warned the regime of Kim Jung Il that the U.S. would honor its commitments to protect its Asian allies commitments," Bush said during a brief White House appearance.
The president said North Korea was "one of the world's leading proliferators" of weapons technology, including transfers to Iran and Syria.
