The United Nations Security Council is meeting Tuesday to discuss new sanctions in response to North Korea's latest nuclear test.联合国安理会星期二将举行会议，讨论针对朝鲜最近进行核试验而对其实施新制裁的问题。
Diplomats told reporters late Monday they hope the council will be able to vote on a resolution by the end of the week. Details of the draft resolution were not immediately available.
The Security Council already unanimously condemned the February 12 nuclear test as a "grave violation" of existing U.N. sanctions on North Korea's nuclear and missile programs. Pyongyang said its test was aimed at its "arch-enemy," the United States.安理会此前一致谴责平壤2月12号进行核试验严重违反了联合国针对朝鲜核项目以及导弹项目的制裁规定。平壤说，进行核试验是针对其主要敌人美国。
