SEOUL– South Korea is pursuing “powerful” punitive measures against North Korea, including a fresh resolution at the United Nations Security Council, in response to Pyongyang’s recent nuclear test, the foreign ministry here said Tuesday.

The Seoul government is also seeking to strengthen the alliance and coordination with the United States in carrying out the “peaceful pressure campaign” on the North while encouraging Russia to play a “constructive” role in resolving the current nuclear stalemate, the ministry said in a report to lawmakers.
