United Nations: A North Korean diplomat rejected a U.N. Security Council decision on Monday to override China`s objections and formally add allegations of grave North Korean human rights abuses to the council`s agenda.

U.N. diplomat Kim Song accused the United States of raising the issue as a political weapon to pressure North Korea. He said a decision on how to respond to the council decision would be made in Pyongyang, North Korea`s capital.
