Japan strengthens unilateral sanctions against DPRK

Most networks reported at noon that following the adoption of a new sanctions resolution against North Korea by the UNSC, the GOJ has decided to strengthen its unilateral sanctions against the North. According to the network, the GOJ will expand the re-entry ban currently imposed on North Korean officials in Japan and foreigners in Japan who have nuclear or missile expertise, and also ban the entry of Japanese ships that have called at North Korean ports, effectively banning all vessels that have called at DPRK ports, including even ships that visited the ports for humanitarian purposes. In addition, the GOJ will expand the asset freeze from the current 43 organizations and 40 individuals to 54 organizations and 58 individuals.
