Seoul asks UN to deter N.Korea 'provocation'

 

 South Korea asked the U.N. Security Council on Friday to take action to deter "further provocation by North Korea" following Pyongyang's alleged sinking of a South Korean naval vessel in March.

The request came in a letter from South Korea's U.N. Ambassador, Park In-kook, to Mexican Ambassador Claude Heller, this month's president of the Security Council. A copy of the letter was obtained by Reuters.

"My government requests that the Security Council duly consider this matter and respond in a manner appropriate to the gravity of North Korea's military provocation in order to deter recurrence of any further provocation by North Korea," it said.
