Japan to expand sanctions against North Korea over missile tests

Published on

Japan decided Tuesday to impose additional sanctions on North Korea by freezing the assets of five more organizations over their involvement in Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile development programs, top government spokesman Hirokazu Matsuno said, according to Japan Times.

„We cannot tolerate North Korea’s repeated provocative actions which threaten Japan’s security and international peace and safety,” Matsuno said.

The abductions of Japanese citizens by North Korean agents in the 1970s and 1980s are one of the major challenges facing the administration of Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, Matsuno said.
