Thursday’s Yomiuri, Nikkei, and Sankei wrote that the Ministry of Defense announced on Wednesday that a MSDF vessel spotted a North Korean-flagged tanker and a ship of unknown nationality connected by hoses in waters about 350 kilometers south-southeast off Shanghai on June 29. The GOJ has reported the possible ship-to-ship transfer to the UN as a suspected violation of the sanctions resolutions on the DPRK because the tanker in question, the An San 1, is subject to an asset freeze and is banned from entering foreign ports under UNSC resolutions.
