South Korean sanctions would fill gaps in UN measures against North Korea: Seoul

Yoon administration has warned it will announce unilateral designations if DPRK conducts another nuclear test

Announcing unilateral South Korean sanctions in the wake of a North Korean nuclear test would not merely be symbolic but would help fill “gaps” in the U.N. sanctions regime, Seoul’s foreign ministry said Monday.

The statement came a week after Seoul publicized its intent to impose its own sanctions against the DPRK should Pyongyang carry out a seventh underground nuclear test as widely anticipated.
