Amid all this, Bolton comes out to discuss strong anti-proliferation resolution aimed

at North Korea.



Things are getting tense...

JESUS

The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. Ps. 36:1

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Ps. 14:1, 53:1

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Prov. 1:7

...Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. Job 28:28

U.N. Agrees on Resolution Against North Korea

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published: July 15, 2006
UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- The U.N. Security Council has reached a tentative deal to adopt a resolution demanding North Korea suspend its ballistic missile program, after agreeing on a compromise to avoid a Chinese veto, several council diplomats said.

American ambassador John R. Bolton told reporters today that he expected a resolution to be adopted Saturday afternoon.




The ambassadors from Britain, France and the United States all said they expected the resolution to be adopted Saturday afternoon.

"We'll see here in short order. I'm confident," U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said.

The council has struggled for days over how best to respond to North Korea's July 5 flurry of missile launches, which provoked an international outcry.

Negotiations went into the evening Friday with the council split over whether the resolution should be adopted under Chapter 7 of the U.N. Charter, which allows for military force to make sure the resolution is obeyed.

China threatened to veto any mention of Chapter 7, and Britain and France offered language that would remove any reference to it, a council diplomat told The Associated Press.

Instead, the draft would emphasize the council's "special responsibilities for the maintenance of international peace and security," the diplomat said on condition of anonymity because the proposal was still secret.

Britain's U.N. Ambassador Emyr Jones-Parry said the council appeared ready to adopt a resolution with his language.

"The prospects of a resolution being adopted this afternoon are really rather good," Jones-Parry said.

He was backed by Bolton and France's Ambassador Jean-Marc de La Sabliere.

De La Sabliere said the council was going into informal consultations to make sure the deal would hold, and then could adopt the resolution later in the day.

The document demands that North Korea suspend its ballistic missile program and includes sanctions requiring all member states to block Pyongyang from receiving or selling missile technology.

Japan wanted to have the resolution wrapped up before a summit of the Group of Eight major industrialized nations that started Saturday. The G-8 was expected to issue a statement on the launches, and council action would allow them to refer to a specific resolution.

President Bush said at the summit that he was confident the Security Council would come up with a resolution.

"We are seriously concerned by North Korea's ballistic missile tests and urge it to return to a moratorium on such launches," Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a joint statement.
