N.Korea nuclear test requires 'adequate' UN response: Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Tuesday he expected the UN Security Council to agree on "an adequate response" to North Korea's controversial nuclear test.

"I know that the UN Security Council is to be discussing this issue in the next few hours and (will) make relevant agreements and decisions on that," he said via a translator on a visit to Pretoria.
