Japan may strengthen unilateral sanctions against DPRK before UNSC adopts new resolution

Saturday morning’s Yomiuri reported that the GOJ and the ruling parties are planning to swiftly strengthen Japan’s unilateral sanctions against North Korea in the wake of Friday’s nuclear test, adding that if the adoption of a new sanctions resolution against the North at the UNSC takes time, Japan may go ahead and strengthen its unilateral sanctions. The paper added that there is no prospect for the resumption of the Japan-DPRK talks on the abduction issue due to North Korea’s repeated military provocations.
