The United Nations Security Council has strongly condemned North Korea's fourth nuclear test, saying it will draft a new resolution that includes "further significant measures" against the reclusive country. (more)

"The members of the Security Council strongly condemned this test, which is a clear violation of Security Council resolutions 1718 (2006), 1874 (2009), 2087 (2013), and 2094 (2013) and of the non-proliferation regime, and therefore a clear threat to international peace and security continues to exist," the Council said in a statement.

The statement followed an emergency meeting by the members of the UN Security Council, which is composed of 5 permanent members and 10 non-permanent members.

"The members of the Security Council also recalled that they have previously expressed their determination to take 'further significant measures' in the event of another DPRK nuclear test, and in line with this commitment and the gravity of this violation, the members of the Security Council will begin to work immediately on such measures in a new Security Council resolution," the statement added.
