After North Korea’s latest missile test, Japan imposes additional sanctions on the country. The government announced this on Friday.
Japanese authorities are freezing the assets of nine people – six North Koreans and three Russians – and four Russian-based organizations. They are said to be involved in Pyongyang’s missile and nuclear programs.
North Korea recently stated that it had successfully tested a new type of long-range nuclear-capable missile that could also reach the United States.
Neighboring Japan is directly threatened by the repeated missile tests.
