UN chief urges measures against North Korea in sinking of ship
The UN Security Council should adopt "measures appropriate" in response to North Korea's sinking of a South Korean navy ship, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Monday in his strongest comments yet against Pyongyang.
Ban called the torpedoing of the Cheonan ship in March "unacceptable" and said evidence of Pyongyang's involvement in the incident is "overwhelming and deeply troubling."
Ban said he supports South Korean President Lee Mung Bak's decision to bring the incident before the UN Security Council in New York, DPA reported.
He said Council members were to consult on what steps to take to counter Pyongyang's attack on the navy ship that killed 46 South Korean sailors.
