“It’s a UN Security Council’s resolution to which we must conform” Thailand’s Foreign Minister Nitya Pibulsonggram said. 

            “Nevertheless, the minister said, Thailand would look into the UN regulations to decide which aspects of the sanctions it would implement as there are many items. 

            Thailand joined the international community in condemning the the underground nuclear test by North Korea on October 9, repeating its call for the socialist state to return to six-party talks to end the nuclear issue in the Korean Penninsula, but refrained from calling for global sanctions against Pyongyang. 

            The UN Security Council unanimously voted to impose sanctions against North Korea following the nuclear test it carried out last week. The sanctions target Pyongyang’s weapons and missile programmes as well as luxury goods.
