NEW YORK, June 10 (RIA Novosti) - The permanent members of the UN Security Council have approved a draft resolution in response to North Korea's recent nuclear test, the Russian mission to the United Nations said Wednesday.
The full Security Council will gather at 15:00 GMT Wednesday for urgent consultations on the resolution.
The Security Council's permanent members are Russia, the United States, Britain, China and France.
North Korea carried out a nuclear test on May 25, a move condemned on the same day by the Security Council, which decided to urgently formulate a relevant resolution.
The five-plus-two format talks, involving the permanent members, Japan and South Korea, were held for over two weeks.
After unsuccessful attempts by diplomats to coordinate specific measures to influence Pyongyang, Russian envoy to the UN Vitaly Churkin said last week that although the resolution would contain sanctions, it would not aim to impose an economic embargo on North Korea.
