U.S. tells North Korea: We don't want a fight, don't start one

The U.N. Security Council on Thursday unanimously adopted a press statement strongly condemning North Korea's latest missile launch.

Asked by CBS News if she considers ballistic missile tests to be a provocation, she said the USA evaluates North Korean action based on whether the country "violates Security Council resolutions, so they definitely have done that".

It would also demand an immediate end to the North's nuclear and missile tests, threaten to take "further significant measures" — United Nations code for new sanctions — and state that North Korea's illegal activities "are greatly increasing tension in the region and beyond". "We welcome that the Security Council was able to show unity in sending a very strong message - I think it was - that North Korea should stop nuclear tests, should stop missile firing", Bessho told reporters outside the council chamber Thursday.

According to the office of the Russian envoy to the United Nations, there was indeed disagreement over the draft statement, because the U.S. had failed to mention "dialogue" as the path towards settling the conflict over the North Korean missile program.

She said that she wanted Pyongyang to see that the United States was not an aggressor.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley separately stressed that the onus was on North Korea to prevent an escalation.

Russian Federation wanted to include language contained in a previous statement stressing the need to achieve a solution through dialogue, according to council diplomats. "They shouldn't try to play it at this point".

"We fully support the efforts of all states in order to make sure that North Korea does not acquire the capacities that would become a threat not only to the region but in a wider area of the world", he told reporters.

They also emphasized "the vital importance" of North Korea "immediately showing honest commitment to denuclearization".

Diplomats said Pyongyang ally China had agreed to the statement.

Whether agreement can be reached on a statement remains to be seen.

Haley the UN Security Council's current president.

"We have said it as clearly as we can possibly say it".

The North conducted two nuclear bomb tests and 24 ballistic missile tests last year, defying Security Council sanctions resolutions banning any testing, and it has conducted additional missile tests this year, including the latest one on April 15 that failed.

"The U.K. supports that, 14 members of the Security Council support that".
