Japan adopts stricter sanctions against North Korea

The Japanese government adopted further sanctions against North Korea at a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday morning in retaliation for test-firing missiles, top government officials said.

The move follows the adoption of a U.N. resolution condemning Pyongyang for test-firing missiles.

Under the sanctions, the government bans withdrawal and overseas remittances from accounts held in Japan by organizations and individuals suspected of being linked to North Korea's development of weapons of mass destruction. Australia has imposed similar sanctions against the communist state.

Japan will urge other countries to take similar measures at a U.N. General Assembly session to get underway in New York on Tuesday.

The sanctions are in accordance with provisions in the Foreign Exchange and Foreign Trade Control Law.

The government designated 15 organizations and an individual that are suspected of involvement in Pyongyang's development of weapons of mass destruction as being subject to the sanctions.

Withdrawals and overseas remittances from accounts held in Japan by designated groups and individuals must be approved by authorities.

The measure effectively freezes assets owned by the designated groups and individual because the government will not approve such withdrawals and remittances unless they prove that they are not involved in North Korea's development of weapons of mass destruction.

The designated bodies and individual must also gain government approval before sending money from Japan to their overseas accounts.

Japan imposed nine-point sanctions on Pyongyang immediately after it test-fired several missiles on July 5, including a total ban on any port visits by a North Korean ferry, the Man Gyong Bong, and entry into Japan by North Korean government officials,.

Tokyo had been considering additional measures since the United Nations adopted a resolution on July 15 urging member countries to prevent transfers of technology, materials or funds to North Korea that would help the secluded state develop missiles and nuclear weapons.
