The Trump administration is pushing for a vote next week at the United Nations Security Council to punish North Korea for its nuclear test over the weekend.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Monday that the U.S. would be negotiating a resolution this week and would hope to call it up for a vote seven days from now.
"We want to urge the council to move very quickly on this," she said at Monday's emergency council meeting. "I think that North Korea basically has slapped everyone in the face in the international community that has asked them to stop."
"So the United States will be circulating a resolution that we want to negotiate this week and vote on on Monday," she said.
It's not yet clear what the U.S. will be proposing. However, the Trump administration has indicated it will be looking to sanction any country that does any business with North Korea, and Haley indicated in New York that those sorts of steps were being considered.
"The U.S. will look at every country that does business with North Korea as a country that is giving aid to their reckless and dangerous nuclear intentions," she said.
