Matthew Lee obtains a draft copy of a Security Council resolution on North Korea.  The resolution condemns the May 25 nuclear test and demands that DPRK fall in line with previous Security Council resolutions on its nuclear program.  Still undecided, however, are what specific punitive measures would be included in a new resolution.  This seems to be up in the air as the paragraph that would spell out these measures (paragraph 8) remains blank. 

Meanwhile, it looks like we will have to wait until sometime next week for a final, sanctions-bearing resolution.
