S.Korea challenges North Korea’s UN membership

Ambassador urges robust, comprehensive resolution; but no precedent of expulsion from UN

South Korea's delegation at the United Nations has questioned North Korea’s qualifications to be a member state, citing its continuous violations of UN Security Council resolutions at an open meeting this week.
