UN agency calls on N Korea to abandon nuclear program

The UN International Atomic Energy Agency adopted Friday a resolution urging North Korea to give up its nuclear program as tensions in the region escalated in the wake of signs that the reclusive nation planned to test a ballistic missile.

The agency's General Conference, made up of 137 member nations, unanimously adopted the resolution, which also encouraged negotiations with the US, China, Russia and other countries in the region. IAEA has updates on the conference and more on North Korea. Reuters has more.
