North Korea possibly behind global WannaCry attack [cybersecurity experts]

"We are talking about a possibility, not that this was done by North Korea", Choi told AP. "We should never underestimate it", Choi said.

The Security Council needs to deal with North Korea's "dangerous and irresponsible obstinacy", said Francois Delattre, France's ambassador to the UN. "And we will target those sanctions towards you as well".

Haley also noted that the US was keeping the option of adopting sanctions against countries aiding North Korea.

North Korea fired a ballistic missile on Sunday that landed in the sea near Russian Federation, which experts said signaled major advances in developing an intercontinental ballistic missile that could target the United States.

"The similarities we see between malware linked to that group and WannaCry are not unique enough to be strongly suggestive of a common operator", FireEye researcher John Miller said.

Tuesday's urgent meeting followed Pyongyang's Sunday launch of what appeared to be an intermediate range ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan, where it landed, falling within 100km of the Russian coast.

Traditionally, the United States and China have negotiated new sanctions before involving remaining council members. He said the council is exploring many different avenues to proceed and "clearly sanctions are a way to go", but also diplomacy.

'Flirting With EFTA': Sturgeon Says Scotland May Join Free Trade Association
Scotland held its first referendum in 2014, when over 55 percent of the people voted against independence. Tory deputy leader Jackson Carlaw said: "Her position on Europe has descended into complete chaos".

During the closed-door meeting however, China made no mention of a new sanctions resolution and renewed its appeal for talks to de-escalate tensions on the Korean peninsula, according to diplomats. "We are going to send a very strong unified message to North Korea that the global community wants to support you, but as long as you test, as long as you continue your nuclear program, you're on an island by yourself". "Is it possible or not?"

The announcement came days after North Korea successfully tested a powerful new missile that analysts believe could reach Alaska when perfected. They're trying to strengthen their muscle with no cause.

"We have underestimated North Korea so far, [assuming ] since North Korea is poor, it wouldn't have any technologies".

Haley noted that this weekend's missile came within 60 miles of Russia's border and said Russian Federation is "all wrong".

The U.N. Security Council met for an urgent meeting Tuesday to discuss possible further sanctions in response to North Korea's continued breaches of U.N. resolutions against the reclusive country's illegal nuclear and ballistic missile programs. "You have to pick a side". Haley then called North Korean leader Kim Jong-un "paranoid" for the second time this week. He thinks we're trying to have regime change. "The U.S., we are willing to talk - but not until we see a total stop of the nuclear process and any tests there".

Pyongyang has carried out two atomic tests and dozens of missile launches since the beginning of previous year in its quest to develop a missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the continental United States.
