Japan decides on new sanctions against N. Korea
http://mdn.mainichi-msn.co.jp/national/news/20061012p2a...

The Japanese government on Wednesday decided on new sanctions against North Korea in response to the communist country's announcement of a nuclear test on Monday.

At a meeting of the Security Council of Japan, the government decided to impose sanctions centering on an all-out embargo on imports from North Korea, a ban on port entry by all North Korean ships and denial of entry into Japan by all North Koreans in principle.

The government will finalize its decision at a cabinet meeting on Friday. The new sanctions will be effective for six months

N.Korea threatens Japan over sanctions
Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea - A North Korean official threatened "strong countermeasures"
against Japan for new sanctions against the communist regime, Kyodo News agency
reported from Pyongyang on Thursday.

The Japanese government decided on a package of additional economic sanctions
against North Korea on Wednesday in response to the regime's claim of a nuclear
test, including a ban on all imports from the country and the docking of North
Korean ships in Japanese ports.

"We will take strong countermeasures," Kyodo quoted Song Il Ho, North Korea's
ambassador in charge of diplomatic normalization talks with Japan, as saying
in an interview on Wednesday when asked about fresh sanctions by Japan.

"The specific contents will become clear if you keep watching. We never speak
empty words," he added.

2. Oh, please, Kim. Japan doesn't have the right to decide whether it trades
with you or not? You have the same right to decide whether NK trades with Japan (although I imagine the Japan could blink and miss the trade that it does with NK.)

What else can you do to Japan? Kidnap some more Japanese citizens and take them back to NK? Real diplomatic. Drop a bomb on Japan? Probably not a good move long term in terms of your longevity.
