Japan will maintain sanctions against North Korea despite its willingness to return to six-party disarmament talks, Kyodo News agency quoted the foreign minister as saying Wednesday. "Basically, they will continue," Kyodo quoted Foreign Minister Taro Aso as saying in parliament during a discussion of Japanese sanctions imposed on Pyongyang following its announcement of a nuclear test on Oct. 9. North Korea affirmed earlier on Wednesday it would return to the disarmament talks to seek a resolution of a U.S. campaign aimed at choking the communist nation's access to foreign banks.
