All papers highlighted yesterday’s press remarks by Foreign Minister Kishida, who explained the GOJ’s policy of enforcing stricter regulations on maritime cargo bound for and from North Korea. The minister said the GOJ will consider adopting a “catch all” system, under which cargo inspections can be undertaken aboard ships even if they are not suspected of transporting sanctioned items. Under the existing law, cargo inspections are possible only if ships are suspected of transporting prohibited goods as designated by UN Security Council resolutions.
