The United States and China have reached an agreement on a new U.N. Security Council draft resolution aimed at punishing North Korea in the wake of its recent nuclear test and for violating previous resolutions, a Security Council diplomat told CNN on Wednesday.

The text of the draft is not yet available but the document will likely be voted in by the full Security Council “in a couple of days,” once other nations have an opportunity to weigh in on the language, according to the diplomat.
“There were a significant number of blockage points between the (United States and China) … but there is an agreement between those two countries,” the diplomat said.
