9 Pages Posted: 7 Feb 2014

Date Written: October 16, 2006


The UN Security Council's resolution on North Korea's nuclear weapon test is a magnificent achievement. The US State Department deserves much of the credit not only for the text of the resolution but also for the skillful diplomacy, headed by Secretary Condoleezza Rice and Ambassador John Bolton, that has resulted in the fifteen-nation Security Council's unanimous vote.
