Japan enhances sanctions on DPRK

NHK reported that the Abe administration decided on Friday to impose additional sanctions on North Korea, explaining that five entities, including the Bank of Dandong based in Liaoning Province and a Chinese cargo operator, were added to a list of concerns which are subject to asset freezing in connection with their transactions with the DPRK. The financial assets of nine additional North Koreans will also be frozen. The dailies said the designation of the two Chinese entities signifies Tokyo’s plan to step up pressure on Pyongyang in coordination with the U.S. since similar punitive measures were applied to the same entities by the Trump administration about a month ago.
