1701986196

Japan decided on Wednesday to expand its sanctions on North Korea in protest against Pyongyang’s recent rocket launch, which Tokyo considered a missile test.

The new sanctions will include restrictions on remittances to and cash carried into North Korea and a complete ban on the entry of North Korean-registered vessels into Japanese ports, even for humanitarian purposes.

Tokyo also decided to bar North Korean residents from entering Japan, the Foreign Ministry said.

On Sunday, North Korea launched a long-range rocket that Pyongyang said was carrying a satellite.

The UN Security Council condemned the move as a missile test.

The launch came one month after the reclusive country conducted a nuclear test.
