WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is welcoming the U.N. Security Council’s action condemning North Korea’s recent missile launch.

The Security Council on Monday unanimously condemned the action and demanded an end to missile tests. The council also said it will expand sanctions against North Korea.

In Washington, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs issued a statement saying that Obama welcomes the Security Council’s “clear and united message” that North Korea’s action was unlawful and would result in real consequences.

Gibbs said the international community is united in demanding that North Korea abandon its pursuit of weapons of mass destruction and their means of delivery, and that it refrain from further provocations.
