At a press conference held on March 25, Chief Cabinet Secretary Matsuno Hirokazu noted that “we will consider measures, including the imposition of additional sanctions.” Minister of Foreign Affairs Hayashi Yoshimasa noted that “we will coordinate with the United States and South Korea on measures including additional sanctions.” (Abridged)
