Security Council deplores NKorea rocket launch
UN Security Council deplores North Korea rocket launch, which violates 2 council resolutions
By The Associated Press

UNITED NATIONS (AP) ' The U.N. Security Council says it deplores North Korea's rocket launch, which violates two council resolutions.

The U.N.'s most powerful body said in a brief press statement after a closed meeting on Friday that members agreed to continue consultations "on an appropriate response."

U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice, the current council president, refused to speculate on whether a response might include new sanctions against North Korea. The council imposed sanctions against North Korea after its first nuclear test in 2006 and stepped up sanctions after its second test in 2009.

"We think a credible reaction is important," Rice said.
