Australia welcomed new UN sanctions against North Korea as "surprisingly tough," and is considering imposing even stronger measures of its own, the foreign minister said Sunday. Australia, a key US ally in the Asia-Pacific region, has strongly backed a stiff international response to the North's claimed nuclear test last Monday, which Canberra said threatens regional stability. "I think they are surprisingly tough, it's a very robust Security Council resolution," Foreign Minister Alexander Downer told television's Network Ten on Sunday. Australia will consider joining Japan and some other countries in banning the entry of North Korean ships, and also might supply naval ships to conduct interdictions of North Korean ships, he said.
