TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan will impose fresh sanctions on North Korea including a ban on all exports to the reclusive state in response to a nuclear test last month, ruling party lawmakers said on Monday.

The move comes after the U.N. Security Council on Friday unanimously approved wider sanctions against the communist state, which included a ban on all weapons exports from North Korea, as well as most arms imports.

Japan's new sanctions, which will also include banning foreigners who violated previous sanctions regarding trade and financial transactions with North Korea from re-entering Japan, will be decided by cabinet on Tuesday, the lawmakers added.


This is Japans reaction, kinda disappointing, if you ask me.

I mean seriously, how much trade actually existed between N.K. and Japan???

Realize, before this latest incident, Japan already would not import anything from N.K.

Even thought, this is basically a meaningless gesture by Japan, I am waiting for kim to say it is an act of war.
