The United States and China have made a deal under which the UN Security Council will expand existing sanctions against North Korea for staging a ballistic missile test.

The deal has been struck after weeks of intense negotiations following the December 12th launch which have involved US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi.

According to diplomats, China is studying a proposed Security Council resolution which is expected to be quickly sent to all 15 members, and could be passed next week.
