UN Security Council imposed sanctions on North Korea
Clay Flaherty at 12:00 AM ET

On October 14, 2006, the UN Security Council voted to impose sanctions on North Korea in response to a reported underground nuclear test on October 9, 2006. The unanimously approved resolution was passed amidst international concerns over North Korea's nuclear capabilities. The US originally proposed a set of sanctions before the Security Council on October 10, 2006. Sanctions included condemning the nuclear test, imposing economic sanctions, and calling on North Korea to destroy its nuclear stockpile. Despite concerns, North Korea took over as chair of the UN Conference on Disarmament in June 2011.
