The world is looking to clamp down on North Korea and, this time, China appears to be on board. The United Nations Security Council is set to vote Wednesday on sanctions aimed at punishing the Hermit Kingdom for its nuclear and ballistic missile tests.

But the powerful nation has signaled it agrees with the proposed measures, which target North Korea's coal and metal exports and is intended to inflict economic pain on the regime. "We are getting very close to moving forward on Security Council measures responding to North Korea's September 9th nuclear test, the latest of five tests," a U.S. official familiar with the resolution told Fox News.
