Japan imposes more unilateral North Korea sanctions

Joint unilateral sanctions by UN member states must be implemented in coordination, expert says

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's Cabinet announced new unilateral sanctions on North Korea on Friday, targeting six companies and one individual of China and Namibia, and another individual of unknown nationality.

The measures follow new U.S. Treasury Department designations on Tuesday against entities and individuals in China, Russia, Singapore, and Namibia for supporting North Korea's special weapons programs, mineral trade and use of overseas labor.
