"The two sides have made considerable progress in core contents" of the envisioned U.N. resolution, a source said, requesting anonymity.
South Korean officials expect a draft resolution to be circulated to the other members of the U.N. Security Council within this week.
But they remain cautious about when a resolution will be adopted.
"Nothing is agreed until everything is agreed," an official pointed out.
The international community has reached a consensus on the need for a strong resolution to punish Pyongyang for its Jan. 6 nuclear test and a long-range rocket launch a month later, both are in clear violation of existing U.N. resolutions on the North.
The U.S. has pushed for tough additional sanctions. China has been opposed to the sanctions-only drive, emphasizing the importance of leaving the door open for dialogue.
As the two sides narrowed differences to some extent, this week could be a watershed for efforts to reach a deal, said another source. (Yonhap)
