S. Korea joins UN sanctions against North despite nuclear test threat
SEOUL (AFP) - South Korea on Thursday confirmed it would implement the latest UN sanctions imposed on North Korea, despite dire warnings from Pyongyang about the consequences.
The sanctions were ordered in response to the North's long-range rocket launch in December and prompted Pyongyang into threatening an imminent nuclear test.
The UN Security Council resolution added six North Korean entities and four individuals to an existing list for an assets freeze and travel ban.
The South's Finance Ministry said it would impose the necessary restrictions on the same parties named in the resolution from next week.
