UNITED NATIONS - The UN Security Council appears set to adopt a presidential statement on Monday that would condemn North Korea's rocket launch, but stops short of a stronger resolution backed by Japan and the US. The statement, agreed in a Saturday session of the 15-member council, would order North Korea to comply with a 2006 resolution or face further sanctions. The plans emerged after the council's five veto powers - the US, Russia, China, France and Britain - agreed on the statement after a week of wrangling. Japan had demanded an emergency council session after North Korea sent a missile across its territory last Sunday. China and Russia opposed a stronger resolution. The US ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, said the proposal sent a clear message to North Korea, it was a legally binding motion of the Security Council and would fulfill all of Washington's goals. The draft "condemns the launch of April 5 and it makes it plain" that the launch contravenes a council resolution from 2006 that banned Pyongyang from testing missiles. She said the draft also raises the possibility of additional sanctions against North Korea if it does not comply, in the form of asset freezes and other sanctions. It calls for a resumption of the six-party talks aimed at getting Pyongyang to dismantle its nuclear programme. The document is to be put before the 15-member council for a vote Monday, a spokesman for the US mission said.
