Specifics on the deal aren’t yet public. The U.N. Security Council said it’s holding closed-door meetings on Tuesday about the issue, where the United States will distribute a draft resolution for the members to review, CBS reports.
“I hope to see a draft [Tuesday] perhaps, but you know, it’s up to the Americans,” one unnamed diplomat said to Reuters.
The sanctions could go to vote in the Security Council before the end of the week. All council members have already signed on to a press statement that condemned the atomic blast — North Korea’s third, that came despite a slew of warnings from the international community.
