United Nations - A UN Security Council resolution proposed by the United States and China names two top North Korean officials it says are key brokers in the country's ballistic weapons program, according to a copy obtained by AFP on Wednesday.

Yon Chong-Nam, a trading company chief, and his deputy Ko Chol-Chae, are among three individuals, a government academy and an import firm that the resolution would sanction following the North's nuclear test last month. - Sapa-AFP
