The US and China agreed Thursday to a UN resolution that diplomats said would impose significant new sanctions on North Korea in response to its recent nuclear and missile tests.

American Ambassador Samantha Power on Thursday will submit a draft resolution to the Security Council, the 15-member body that would impose the penalties, following nearly six weeks of negotiations that strained relations between Washington and Beijing, these people said.

“We look forward to working with the Council on a strong and comprehensive response to [North Korea’s] latest series of tests aimed at advancing their nuclear weapons program,” said Kurtis Cooper, acting US spokesman at the UN mission.
