U.S. envoy Rice praises U.N. resolution on North Korea

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States envoy to the United Nations on Friday welcomed the U.N. Security Council’s passage of an “unprecedented” resolution expanding sanctions on North Korea.

“We’re very pleased the Security Council just within an hour and a half passed a brand new resolution,” U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice told a White House briefing. She called the resolution “unprecedented” and “innovative” with a sanctions regime that has “teeth that will bite.”
