Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Japan is considering additional sanctions against North Korea, a news report said Sunday. Kyodo News agency quoted Abe as saying that Tokyo will contemplate slapping additional sanctions on North Korea in line with a new UN Security Council resolution against the communist state over its claimed nuclear test. Abe made the remark after the UN body unanimously adopted the resolution, Kyodo said. Last week, Japan's Cabinet approved closing ports to North Korean ships and banning trade with the North.
